Hi Jaren!  Great to know Eric recommended you ask me about recommended permaculture design certification course.  I've posted the info on this discussion page, to make it easier to share with others who also may be interested.

Let me know if this is helpful!  I look forward to meeting you and learning which pathways to reskilling you will be taking.
