EXPERIENCE PERMACULTURE IN ACTION!
Four Week Stays Commencing at the Beginning of Each Month
This unique course blends two broad interdisciplinary studies, exploring the impact the health of our environment directly has on our personal wellbeing, specifically working with and alongside medicinal plants. PDC for the Herbalist Path includes the classic 72-hour permaculture certificate curriculum, as well as an in-depth study of herbal medicine. Master herbalist Sarah Wu will take students through topics such as botany, anatomy & physiology, the human micro-biome, patterns in health & disease, free clinics and Herbalism as Activism, and hands-on exercises in medicine making, wild crafting, and plant spirit walks.
Live, work and learn on our 85-acre mature permaculture farm for 8 weeks as a Punta Mona community member. As an Apprentice, you will receive an experiential learning education through hands-on curriculum and intentional community living! This apprenticeship is a terrific way to practically apply your permaculture knowledge and work with high-functioning closed-loop systems on our land and throughout our visible and invisible structures.
