Permaculture Design Course
With Kelly Simmons, Marisha Auerbach, and guests
March 12 - 20th & 15 - 27th
8:30 am - 6 pm
Raindrop Retreat Center, Bellevue, CO (near Ft. Collins)

$950 non-residential, $1200 residential

Rocky Mountain Sustainable Living Association and Home Grown Food are thrilled to offer a 12‐day, intensive Permaculture Design Course certification near Fort Collins.

This well‐rounded permaculture course is an excellent opportunity to build community and get your heart, hands and head engaged in learning how to design sustainable communities and systems
through permaculture ‐‐ an ecological design system inherently rooted in nature and applicable virtually everywhere: gardens, homes, businesses, communities, and relationships.

Permaculture teaches the language of nature, how to communicate within the systems we depend on, and how to redesign them with innate intelligence that supports life and abundance. The full certificate course, led by seasoned permaculture instructors, is offered over 12 days in northern Colorado at the mouth of the Poudre River Canyon. This site is located on 30 acres, offering numerous hands‐on, practical how‐to’s, for course participants. A greater consciousness of the interconnectedness of human life with the environment is the next great learning curve that we are all a part of.
