Looking for a semester that’s radically different? Consider the Rising Earth Permaculture Immersion.
Participants can earn up to 14 college credits in 10 weeks, as well as a Permaculture Foundations Certificate.
While living rustically in forest yurts on a 28-acre organic farm, participants explore their life paths in the spirit of social and ecological healing. Skills include conscious communication, collaborative leadership, and ancestral arts for living an earth-connected life. Each week features a healthy balance of workshops, classes, collaborative projects, work in the garden, and mindful moments.
Earn your Permaculture Foundations Certificate with Eco-Institute co-founder Meg Toben and Ojibwe Elder Dan Wahpepah.
You can expect to get your hands (and toes!) in the rich soil, spend time creating practices that nourish your spirit, make heart-to-heart connections with peers and mentors, and clarify your role in a more socially just and ecologically resilient future.
