The cost of this course is $750. Though the cost is less than the standard 72 hour course, we are offering many more hours than that. After all, 2012 is now upon us. We feel that the basic course is too short, and that it creates quantity, but less quality. There is a sliding scale, and a payment plan can be worked out. Scholarships are possible. The cost for the total course boils down to $93.75 per weekend. That is less than a social night out and far more rewarding. If you only want to take certain weekends, then the cost is $100 per weekend. Just contact us regarding subject matter. Certification credit is given only after completion of the entire course. A $100 non-refundable deposit should accompany your application. Upon completion of this entire course, a certificate will be awarded designating you as a Permaculture Design Apprentice. This certificate is recognized world-wide. To apply, please fill out the application form on this site.
