Permaculture and Ecovillage Immersion

June 10, 2017 @ 10:00 am - August 11, 2017 @ 2:00 pm


The Permaculture and Ecovillage Immersion is a 2-month residency at Earthaven Ecovillage, a 22-year old, permaculture-based community on 329 acres in the mountains of Western North Carolina.

Learn what’s needed and how to make informed and responsible choices for your basic needs in applied Permaculture design and ecological living; forge deep, authentic relationships with yourself, others, and the Earth; and ultimately contribute to a more sustainable and just world for all.

This program offers practical, real-life skills while fostering personal connection and growth in a supportive learning environment so that we all can experience more happiness, vitality, deep listening, empathy, zeal for life, inner healing, and leadership skills.

Includes an Ecovillage Design Education Certification through Gaia Education and a Permaculture Design Certification.
