​*  This Sowing Solutions Permaculture Design Certification Course in Western Massachusetts is celebrating over a decade of Permaculture Education.
*  This course provides an opportunity for you to gain direct permaculture design experience.  Participants conduct a guided design practice alongside leading permaculturists from the northeast.
*  We visit numerous 
well-established permaculture demonstration sites to study thriving ecosystems, water harvesting, community structures, natural buildings, energy efficiency, and more.
*  Gaining your internationally recognized certification with Sowing Solutions is an experience of empowerment, support, inspiration and skill building.  

  • Fundraising and Work Trades are available.
  • Tuition includes lunch for all days.

We will have a number of interesting design projects to work on together, and we have many existing permaculture demonstration sites to visit. The weekend series format of this course gives us a chance to correspond with you during the months between the class sessions, and provides students with ample time to integrate the new course material. The three weekends in session are opportune times for sharing skills, resources, inspiration, networking, and for forming new and lasting friendships.
