May 24-June 6, 2015 - Monteverde Cloud Forest Costa Rica - Permaculture Design Course and Natural Building Workshop
May 24-June 6
Learn about permaculture design in the Monteverde Cloud Forest of Costa Rica!
We will deliver our 13th internationally recognized Permaculture Design Certificate Course at the illustrious Monteverde Institute. (Please check out this wonderful organization, the site and facilities)
The course will incorporate visits to the local farms and communities, classes on local ecology from Monteverde, and the rich ecosystem of the cloud forest - students will be immersed in both the culture and ecology of the region and will design from that experience. Following the course, there will be further opportunities to learn natural building, alternative energy and the ecology of the area and to apprentice at Monteverde.
This is an ideal opportunity for those who would like to start the summer with an immersion in the subject of permaculture in a beautiful location and is the perfect launch for a summer in Central/South America. The weather in the cloud forest is mild all year; this time of year is a great time to visit. College credits for this course may be possible, depending on your school's policies.

Exceeded My Expectations
"Grow Permaculture far exceeded my expectations, even after years of experience working with organic gardening methods already. This is just the tip of the iceberg on how much is available for you to learn as you will find out. The depth of how very differently agriculture and water management and land usage really can't be stressed enough."
"This Permaculture Design Certificate Course changed my life. I feel so fortunate to have the information that will allow me to be fully self-sufficient, off the grid, living with true abundance, and I am grateful that I know how to create abundance for entire communities. I'm certain that working in and with Permaculture is how I can contribute to dramatically improving the world, right now. We really can feed the world and solve most of the world's problems in a garden."
