Event Description


Event Day and Time: 
 Jul 15 2016 (All day) - Jul 27 2016 (All day)
Broken Ground in Bozeman and Inside Edge Design in Helena are excited to bring a comprehensive learning opportunity to Montana for gardeners, farmers, ranchers and homesteaders. 

Permaculture is a design science rooted in the observation of natural systems. Permaculture teaches us how to build natural homes, grow our own food and medicine, tend our animals, restore diminished landscapes and ecosystems, catch rainwater, harness energy, and build communities.


In this full immersion 13-day course, participants will receive the core permaculture curriculum, and will also come away with skills to be practitioners in the areas of Regenerative Agriculture, Rural or Urban Homestead/Farm-scale Enterprise Planning, Edible Forest Gardening, Community Development, and Digital Mapping and Design Methods. This is a family-friendly course with a lot of practical experience complementing lecture time. Couples discounts as well as on-site childcare are available.

I was unable to raise the funds. I would still like to promote this PDC in beautiful Bozeman, Montana. If miracles happen I can still go but if not there is always next year. I am also thinking of taking one of the free online courses but the experiencing it in real life cannot be duplicated. I plan to spend some time on a permaculture farm as a WWOOFer this summer at least. Thank you : )

Hi Everyone,

I am trying to raise funds to attend the PDC in Montana. If you would like to take the course and mention my name when signing up I will get a $100 discount. I have a site to help me raise funding. I don't have a Facebook but if you let others know and spread the word I would be very grateful. I will update the site as I go along.

I love everything about permaculture and want to attend this awesome event. I have a degree in Environmental Studies from Western Washington University and was hooked on the principles of permaculture. Please any help would be appreciated. I live on a fixed income and cannot afford to make the entire amount. I am doing a work trade but it only covers a small part of the costs. The instructors of the course are working on ways to include permaculture designs as a Community Supported Design Program much like a CSA. The concept is to invest PD education and designs into cities. Please check out the link for my fundraiser.

I will keep you posted on my progress. Thank you!
