We will talk about the principles and practices of creating lush, sustainable living systems in diverse climates and bioregions from coastal to arid. We talk about how you can apply these principles in designing and building your garden and home, creating and using renewable energy systems, and co-creating social and economic systems that are healthy for both the planet and its human and nonhuman beings. And we look at ways in which you can create a sustainable livelihood based on these principles.

Beat those winter blues this year and enjoy the tropical weather of Puerto Rico while earning your Permaculture Design Certification. CRMPI teams up with the Caribbean Agroforestry Institute for the second year to offer the PDC, island style.
Learn to design a sustainable lifestyle + eat healthy + immerse yourself with hands-on experience in a tropical jungle, edible garden, medicinal healing herb gardens and young tropical food forest while earning your Permaculture Design Certification. This is a FAMILY FRIENDLY course.
The accommodation is BYO tenting, the food is from our farm and other local organic farmers. While the information serves as a general education in permaculture, this course offers an in-depth examination of the function of the homestead and farm and is designed to inform students who will gain the skills and design thinking to implement and manage a system. This is a very hands-on course. Mornings are usually devoted to practical applications and afternoons are dedicated to course lectures.
