Hi everyone, 
Joy and I wanted to inform that Barking Fig Urban Farm will be unable to host the course at this time. 
We are always here for tours, produce and propagation sales, or private instruction, and remember, "At The Barking Fig, we let you weed for free!"
Paul & Joy

This is a rare opportunity to get your permaculture designer consultant certificate in the off-season at a very affordable price. (This course is much, much cheaper than comparable residential permaculture certification courses because it does not include camping or food. It is a bring your own lunch affair.) We will have saturday evening potluck dinner followed by permaculture videos for those who choose to stay. Are you ready for a paradigm shifting, hyper-empowering download?!
