The course is staffed by those making a living as professional designers, farmers, extension agents and health care providers. This is not permaculture as a fantastic idea, it's an immersion in how numerous systems actually work over a decade and beyond. It's proof of concept. Participants have the unique opportunity to immerse in a working small farm and homestead and see exactly what opportunities and challenges arise in developing and maintaining a productive and resilient home and land resource system. Our site represents numerous cutting edge design opportunities for developing a self-reliant, liberated lifestyle customized for the cold climate, temperate biome. This course includes the standard certificate curriculum but goes beyond the typical Designer's Certification Course by utilizing the background of skills-based trainings offered in Whole Systems Skills, and is filled with practice-based, learning-by-doing experiences, not only concept and information-based study. Students in this course will not walk away from the experience without basic post-peak oil resiliency literacy including:
how to plant and propogate trees
layout on-contour swales and build them
harvest biomass with a scythe and sharpen it, sharpen and maintain other basic tools
perform earthworks, harvest water, inoculate mushroom logs and spread mushroom patches
knots, herbal medicine, fermenting, and innumerable other hard skills.

This course offers an unparalleled opportunity to gain hands-on applied permaculture skills immersed in one of North America's most diverse and intensive permaculture research sites now in its 2nd decade, along with our 2nd site where we are establishing our proven approaches at the commercial permaculture farm scale.
Participants engage with high-performance home and community resource systems that are more resilient in the face of problems posed by peak oil, climate change, environmental toxicity, and the inability of existing economic and social systems to deal with such challenges.
