Jessica, Architect, California

“My favorite thing about this course is the wide variety of online resources that it contains. Seeing so many different examples of places and people implementing permaculture ideals and techniques is also very encouraging. It feels like a very appropriate place to start exploring what works for me as a beginner permaculturalist with few resources and no property of my own.”

Monica, Landscape Designer, Missouri

​”With this course I felt supported in finding my own voice in the way that I see and apply permaculture in every aspect of my life. This course unleashed many amazing processes within me, connecting the nature around and within me, and back to my professional practice as well.”

Luiza, Medical Doctor, Switzerland

“Women-centered permaculture is an environmental Take Back the Night. It’s challenged me to think about land ownership as an unnatural state with responsibilities that go far beyond the garden. It’s shown me the symbiosis of land and social justice and given me the courage to be a steward of nature.”

Christina, Chocolatier, New York

The vast wisdom and knowledge that has been compiled and shared by these masterful women continues to draw me through the course, supporting not only my design, but my day to day life.”​
