"My experience in the course was invaluable.  I find myself with a
new permaculture lens that I can put on at will, and see the world
around me in a way that I feel leads to making more conscious
decisions and living better in harmony with the earth."
   - Deborah F., Course Graduate  

This course will combine critical design skills with leadership, 
nature connection, and most importantly an urban focus, building
and exceeding upon the internationally-recognized Permaculture 
Design Certification curriculum.  Our programs offer by far the
most complete curriculum of any similar course -- with a huge 
focus on leadership, personal growth and community design as well
as green business.  

You'll learn how to create sustainable, thriving human systems,
from green houses and organic gardens, to local micro-economies
and communities, using sustainable design principles that are
applicable to every human system, from businesses, communities,
and cities to personal relationships.

Because of our unique focus on Urban and Suburban solutions,
our courses are radically different from most other programs,
teaching permaculture as a design science rooted in nature. 
With most of the world's population in cities, we must 
meet people where they live with real sustainable solutions.

Starting by learning the lessons from nature with some of the
world's most renowned organic farming experts, we will then look
at how to apply what we learned from the soil and the water to
building sustainable, lasting institutions.

Common Circle Education is the nation's ecological design and
sustainable living school with courses in Oregon, Hawaii and 
California; our instructors are some of the most well-known 
leaders in sustainability, organics and permaculture design.

We hope you will be able to join us for this incredible, 
life-changing experiential course!
