About our courses
Our courses have been designed to move you slowly but surely into the understanding of permaculture ethics, principles and applications.
You will learn how to use and practice them in your personal life and in your projects and we will provide you with initial mentorship.
Permaculture as a design system offers an incredible mindset and a set of tools to create more abundance, work flow efficiency and close loop cycles.
On our permaculture demonstration and learning center in Luang Prabang, Laos PDR you will have the opportunity to immerse yourself in the life of a living and productive permaculture farm and to share time within our international community.
We offer 1 and 2 day introduction courses for short stays in town, as also longer courses, like the Permaculture Design Certificate Course and a practical project management apprenticeship training. For more informations, please click here
