Teachers can help to custom build a program for their students. The more time you have for the course, the more we can teach! But even if you only have a small amount of time, we will work with you to choose the most important things for your students.
Areas of learning often include the following:
Enrolling Your Class
Let us know how many students you have and how many hours you can fit into your curriculum. We suggest setting aside 15-45 hours, but we can accommodate msot schedules. We can teach full days or partial days but recommend at least 2 hours for a class. Once we receive some basic information from you. we can come to your school to discuss the program and make sure we meeting any learning objectives that you might have for your particular group of students. We will also invite you to come tour our farm to get a sense of how the learning will take place.

Permaculture is primarily a philosophy of agricultural and social design intended to create regenerative living systems. Permaculture holds at its very core a philosophy of working with, rather than against, nature. Toby Hemenway, permaculture expert, describes the goal of permaculture as “meeting human needs while preserving and increasing ecosystem health”.
