Our Beaver State Permaculture programs are continuing to evolve at Oregon State University. We offer 10 week long completely internet-based instruction. Instructors are Andrew Millison, and Marisha Auerbach for most courses.
ONLINE ADVANCED PERMACULTURE DESIGN PRACTICUM
For students who have completed a PDC, this 10 week college credit course will walk you through the design process on your own project. You can view details here:
"I have learned so much from this course. Since my first introduction over 10 years ago to Permaculture, followed by my first PC course, I have been hooked to its concepts and components, but I admit it wasn't until this course that I was able to take the varied elements of a property and actually work through an entire integrated design process. In short it put all the pieces together and thus taught me more about the Permaculture process than any book, 2 week course, or established permaculture farm could. For that, Andrew, I thank you. Having a 10 week course allows the learning to infiltrate and become more tangible. I feel like this course was exactly what my property and I needed. Your work has rippled outward to my home and my passion for, as well as my skills with, permaculture have matured. I walk away from this course with applicable insight, philosophy, practice, and perhaps most importantly (for my clients and myself), a detailed and researched plan to work from. This course covers a broad spectrum of learning that I feel applies to a long list of people; Landscape architects, permaculture enthusiasts, self-sufficient homesteaders, cultural revolutionaries, social philanthhropists, and shared landowners can all harness benefits from this experience. No doubt, it is an investment in the land, yourself, and our future. "

Thank you for posting this, Andrew. I live up in the Yukon, Canada. Can I take part in this course... or is it reserved for Oregonians/Americans?

You can definitely join the class. In our current course there is a student from Vancouver. I've had Alaskan students before as well. This class is made in part for the remote student who is far from a residential course offering. Get in touch if you have any more questions,
