What would happen if a guild of permies gathered at a gorgeous rainforest permaculture farm and retreat center to evolve their teaching skills and build conscious connections with each other, visioning the next level for their work and lives as individuals and as a permaculture community? Coming together in profound and transformative learning environment, this ring of learners and teachers will take their permaculture practice to the next level.
Gaiacraft is joyed to announce a new permaculture teacher training taking place a short ferry ride north of Vancouver in the tiny coastal mountain village of Roberts Creek. Here is a perfect opportunity to visit the Elphinstone rainforest while connecting with an inspiring group of permaculture teachers and teachers-to-be. Here is an opportunity to study with Scott Pittman and Larry Santoyo, aligning with the Permaculture Institute USA and learning how they are setting up their institute, teachers registrar and diploma process. Alone we are strong, together we are stronger!!
