The Ecology Center, located in San Juan Capistrano, welcomes you to join us in gathering the tools and practical, systemic solutions to repair and benefit our local ecosystems and environment.
Under the tutelage of agro-ecologist Evan Marks, founder of The Ecology Center, and other permaculture professionals, increase your knowledge of applied sustainability by joining us in this permaculture design certification course. While many permaculture courses require a full two-week commitment, this weekender program (12 sessions across 6 months) is designed with strong emphasis on service-oriented, application-based, learning through doing. Upon completion of 72 education hours plus a practicum, you will be an integral part of the sustainability movement, equipped with hands-on knowledge to make real and lasting change in the health and wellness of your personal and professional communities.
Topics covered in-depth include:
ECO-DESIGN: permaculture principles; ecology + natural history; local and global design strategies
