BECOME A PERMACULTURE CHANGE AGENT FOR YOUR COMMUNITY IN JUST 2 WEEKS IN A SUPERIOR PERMACULTURE DESIGN CERTIFICATE COURSE TAUGHT BY ENGINEERS FOR VISIONARY PROFESSIONALS.
As engineers, we’re accustomed to taking a laser-focused approach to problems within complex human-made systems. And we know from experience that you could spend years of study, and a fortune in tuition, learning how to develop targeted technological solutions for our environmental challenges.
But experience has also taught us that those limited solutions won’t even begin to touch the full range of issues we face…and may even make them worse.
Why? Here’s the difference: The planet isn’t a machine…it’s a complex web of interdependent living systems, and far more than the sum of its parts.
WHAT THE HECK IS PERMACULTURE?
SO TO SOLVE THE PROBLEMS AT THEIR ROOT, YOU NEED TO UNDERSTAND HOW THE SYSTEM WORKS AS A WHOLE:
how to observe and understand natural patterns and processes…
how to design and support sustainable, self-regenerating systems.…
how to intervene when something goes wrong…
how to create a household…a neighbourhood…a community…a local economy…and a culture that exists in harmony with the natural world.
AND THAT’S WHEN YOU CAN MAKE REALLY PROFOUND CHANGES HAPPEN!
This is the holistic approach you’ll begin to learn in Verge’s Permaculture Design Course. For a tiny fraction of what it would cost to earn a conventional environmental degree elsewhere, you’ll discover the secrets that keep a healthy ecosystem and society thriving…and learn how you can use those secrets to create a successful, regenerative business, empower your community and “green” your world in ways you never imagined!
