Some of our Best Courses Come from....

...You! We are always looking for new projects and courses to teach and some of best courses have come about through collaboration with organizations and individuals like you. Whether it is our custom International Development Courses, community trainings as we have done for Lincoln Heights CDC or Xavier University or collaborative project courses as we have done with Gorman Heritage Farm, the Enright Green Group or Private Homeowners, you make some of our most exciting and unique courses happen. Despite our wide bioregional reach, we can't keep track of all the good projects going on or being planned in our community and beyond, so please contact us with any of your plans and we'll see what fresh ideas we can come up with to help expand the reach and impact of permaculture in our community and beyond.

Courses could include but are not limited to:

  • International Development Trainings: Have a mission trip or general NGO Development trip planned? Let our experts help train and prepare your team to maximize your impact when abroad. Too many development trips miss their maximum potential in leaving a lasting, sustainable impact due to poor planning and training. Our team with years of development experience can help cater a permaculture development training to your destination for maximum benefit. It is always geared towards the appropriate climate, level of development and the next steps the community you are assisting can take to improve their lives and that of the earth. So let us know what you have in mind and we'll work with you to create the best training possible.
  • Community Development Trainings: We have created and lead many unique community training initiatives in collaboration with different community partners around our city and beyond. They help spread the power of permaculture out to our existing communities to help green them, one student, one yard, one project at a time. So if you would like to engage your community, whether to green homes and yards in it or to create green community designed projects let us know and we are happy to see what kind of exciting new engagements we can create together.
  • Educational Permaculture Projects: Do you have a natural building project, permaculture orchard, food forest or a water management project that you, your business or non-profit or educational organization are heading up? Would you like to increase your impact with it, through sharing it with the community? Well let us know and we can help create a custom event that will help with those goals. Whether its custom classes reviewing topics related to the project or actual hands on, assisting with the project, we can help organize, market, register and lead classes or any collaborative combination with your organization.
