It’s Unique & powerful
There’s no other program that even approaches the depth, breadth, support, and value of this course. If you’ve taken a PDC already, this will expand your understanding 100x or more. If you’ve taken Dr. Elaine Ingham’s soil courses, this course will help you put that information into action. If you’ve been teaching permaculture, this is going to supercharge your practice.
How do I know this? Because my students, many of them PDC teachers themselves, have told me so - many, many times.
Why? This course is based on the only peer-reviewed, global permaculture textbook designed specifically for high school, college, and adult learners - it’s fully cited, standards-based, and current. It has been reviewed & endorsed by the Permaculture Research Institutes of both Australia and USA.
The Advanced Permaculture Student Online (A.P.S.O.) takes this amazing book even further and expands upon it with over 70 niche experts and educators from around the world to explore the regenerative spectrum more fully - including extensive how-to and real-life professional and homestead working examples.
You can move as fast as you like and complete the course and certification requirements at any time - you do not have to wait for other classmates. You can ask any questions anytime in the course or group as well. This is designed to help you achieve your goals at your rate.
It’s also a LIVE Course
Many of us need a team, a group of folks who are striving with us towards the same goal. We can get feedback, support, and community in a LIVE course especially when it’s student-centered and project-based which requires a lot of interaction, discussion, and reflection. The final results though are incomparable: you will actually create your idea and get the feedback you need to be an advanced designer and teacher, not just a paper-PDC teacher or theory consultant, AND You Can Retake The LIVE Course EVERY YEAR!!!
That’s right - you are included in every season of our 40-week LIVE course. Next LIVE course
It’s Lifetime access
This includes the online community, the course videos, ebooks, & pdfs, the LIVE Q&A webinars, & the annual LIVE course.
You also can earn your certifications at any point - even if you take several sessions to complete it (and we can help you - that’s why we are here!!)
WE ARE HERE TO HELP YOU

This is a 20-week video-based course with over 70 expert instructors from around the world who have greened deserts, grown tons of soil per acre per year, made professional-level mycology accessible to the home cultivator or startup mushroom farm, trained professional landscapers in permaculture, redefined soil science and composting as we know it, converted organic orchards to permaculture, witnessed the restoration of the ancient Molokai fish ponds, made impossible seed and plant adaptations possible, and much more. This course takes permaculture into the advanced fields of mycology, large-scale land restoration, market gardening, natural farming, alternative energy, social permaculture, ocean restoration, city planning, aquaculture, vermiculture, and more.
"I’d have to say that my understanding of the earth and permaculture in general has expanded to universal portions. As well as my beliefs in my ability to make a positive change. Before this coursework, I thought I might change my small homesite into a buffering area for the changing climate to make things easier personally. Now , aside from modeling a change for others, I think that even my site could make a measurable difference in the local climate, both environmental and social, and possibly global." - Dave M., current student
