If you guild it, they will come.

Permaculture Women’s Guild is cultivating global abundance for a new generation, through interactive education, regenerative leadership, and social systems design. We’re here to build personal and professional connections between women who teach, practice, write about, and live on the permaculture path.

Our Permaculture Design Course Mentors

Our online double-certificate Permaculture Design Course contains content from more than 100 female experts in 30 countries, and includes an active faculty of dozens of women from a wide variety of climates and cultures, making this the most comprehensive and well-supported permaculture course in the world.

Our teachers are experienced leaders, with strong ties in their local communities. Most of us have advanced degrees in a related field, many are published authors, and all of us are certified permaculture designers with anywhere from 5-40 years of hands-on homesteading and social systems experience. 

Your PDC tuition includes 1:1 support with the mentor of your choice, plus access to our private forum where all of the active faculty are present to answer questions and guide your design.
