Permaculture Design Course
Many permaculture design certification opportunities are popping up across the USA. Before registering, however, you may wish to verify that the certification provided is recognized as valid by the Permaculture Institute USA (http://www.permaculture.org/). Permaculture Institute USA is a nonprofit organization dedicated to promotion of permaculture through education, and by establishing professional practice standards for the permaculture movement. Founded in 1997 by Scott Pittman and Bill Mollison, the Institute’s work focuses on education and alliances.
