EXPERIENCE PERMACULTURE IN ACTION!
Immerse yourself in the permaculture lifestyle, living off-the-grid with us in the jungle of Costa Rica! During this 2-week course you will learn the fundamentals of ecological design, climates, soil science, earthworks, water management, food forests, annual food production & edible landscaping, closed-loop waste systems and much more.
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.
