PermaEthos - Learning Opportunities

This weeks post talks about PermaEthos, the organization where I completed my Permaculture Designers Certificate Course.

The word PermaEthos is made up of two parts,
  • Perma – to be permanent, to last and endure, to be sustainable
  • Ethos – ideals that characterize a community

Four Primary Missions at PermaEthos
  1. Design, implement and manage profitable Permaculture farms
  2. Deliver top quality Permaculture training programs
  3. Empower real world and virtual communities built on Permaculture Ethics
  4. Create educational and entertaining Permaculture-based on-demand video programming

PermaEthos conducts multiple training courses and workshops.  Some of the educational programs consist of short term field workshops others include online training courses with interactive instructor support.

The first such online program was their 72 Hour Permaculture Design course which attracted over 1,300 students, including me, during its first open enrollment period. 

Additional online courses, some with a free preview lesson, include-
  • Permaculture Bee Design Course (BDC) conducted by Michael Jordan, also known as “The Bee Whisperer”
  • Plant Propagation and Small Nursery Establishment Course conducted by Nick Ferguson of PermacultureClassroom.com
  • Soil Restoration Course with Michael Vertrees
  • Creating Gaia's Garden with Toby Hemenway
  • More to come
Also available FREE are the live PermaEthosTV seminars.  Each week a new presenter and topic covers .  Past presenters have included Marcin Jakubowski of Open Source Ecology, Paul Wheaton, and Toby Hemenway, author of Gaia's Garden.

Past seminars are available on Vimeo for $2.99
