Hello permies,

I am offering my services as a permaculture instructor.

After permaculture gardening, my greatest love in life is teaching permaculture. There is little more in life I wish to see than the permaculture paradigm spreading and helping more people and ecosystems out. Since this passionate spark in me lit, I have written and taught multiple permaculture classes which I am available to present via online video conference (eg. Zoom, Jitsi, etc.) or in-person.

Here is a selection of original slide show presentation classes that I am available to teach:

   • Introduction to Permaculture: Ethics, Definition, and History of Permaculture [1.5 hours long]

   • Principles of Permaculture [2 classes, 1.5 hours long each; 3 hours total]

   • Permaculture Domains [30 minutes long]

   • Permaculture Zones [1 hour long]

   • Permaculture Sector Energies, Aspect, Orientation, and Mapping [1.5 hours long]

   • Composting: the Permaculture Way [1.5 hours long]

   • Forests or Deserts: a Choice – on the Amazon rainforest as feral food forest [2.5 hours long]

   • Fungi: a Permaculture Perspective [2.5 hours long]

   • Wild Mushroom Identification How-To Class [2.5 hours long]

   • Mushroom Log Inoculation How-To Class [1.5 hours long]

   • Worm Farming (Vermiculture) How-To Class [1 hour long]

   • Social Permaculture [2 classes, 1.5 hours long each; 3 hours total]

   • Container Pot Gardening: the Permaculture Way [1.5 hours long]

   • Permaculture Models for Higher Education [30 minutes long]


Currently, I am creating more slide show presentations classes on other topics and I can also create original slide show presentation classes on additional permaculture topics of interest to you upon request. In addition to that, I am available to expand the class on any of the above listed topics to suit your time needs.

Contact me to teach as guest instructor in your Permaculture Design Course (PDC). Or perhaps hire me to teach a one-on-one class or a small group for a club or home school group that you want to introduce some of these ideas to. The class content is generally designed for high school education level and above.

I am also open to selling the permaculture classes listed above as a slide show presentation packet, where you would get the slide show presentation class - in Powerpoint format - as well as the class notes - in Word document format - on what to say for each slide to be used to teach your own class(es) or for self study.

Fitting within people’s budgets is important to me, so I offer pay-what-you-can-afford sliding scale pricing.

Here’s a little bit about my permaculture education and experience background. I have...

• ...completed a total of 5 Permaculture Design Courses.

• ...completed 4 mycology (mushrooms and other fungi) courses.

• ...completed a compost, compost tea, compost extract, life in the soil, soil microscopy course.

• ...been permaculture farming and gardening since 2012 in temperate, subtropical, and tropical climates. We currently grow over 50 meals per week at our homestead and I also currently work on a farm.

• ...been teaching permaculture classes since 2016.

• ...published original permaculture content in print, podcast, and video formats.


If you would like to see my full résumé as well as references, I can supply that upon request.

I look forward to talking to you more about my permaculture instruction services or slide show presentations packets.

Contact me for more information by sending me a Purple Mooseage (Personal Message) here on permies, then we can further arrange details via email, phone and/or video call.

Let’s get permaculture into more brains together! :-)

Hi Mike,
Not sure if it’s something you’re into but if you wanted to organize a PDC or series of workshops, I have a relatively raw piece of land in southern Oregon, outside of Ashland. It’s about midway between Portland and San Francisco. A great deal of potential for a variety of classes.
Good Luck
-Leaf
