The Earthius Project's Spring 2020 PDC and PFC courses are starting on March 21, 2020.

If you are in central NC and would like to dive in to a robust and dynamic course, on a UN Decade for Biodiversity Project of Merit site, taught by a former professor and experienced permaculture designer and practitioner, sign up now at

This course is hands-on, team-oriented, community-focused, and rich in current, relevant content, including Deep Adaptation, Insect Extinction, Climate Activism, Urban Homesteading and much more.

The course is extremely affordable to enable a wide range of students to attend.

Only $780 for the PDC, $480 for the PFC!

Well, I don't know where you are or hope to be, but we just joined as exploratory members an eco-village in central North Carolina and would welcome a family like yours... in fact, my husband and I and our 3 kids are very similar to you in many ways... go to and check it out, see if that sounds like your kind of thing... you can also follow us on
best wishes! Adriana

I recently became an exploratory member of a forming ecovillage, Hart's Mill, here in central NC just northwest of Raleigh.
I am trying to get the word out, because we need more, new, serious members... we would be especially pleased to see interest from families with kids...
We have the land, 115 acres, and the founders are very knowledgeable about how they are going about this...
But we are at a critical growth point where we need things to snowball and would be thrilled to get some more interest..
Please check us out and "Like" us on facebook at
We need input and dynamic discussion on our progress and ideas on how to proceed.
The first 2-3 homes will hopefully be built this year... a permaculture survey has been done and shows great promise, and if you are interested in learning more about the project itself, please see our website at
I can't think of a more reasonable approach to building a community than to go out and seek support and ideas from others with the experience and interests that are needed here!
Please let me know what you guys think!
