Immerse yourself in the permaculture lifestyle, living off-the-grid with us in the jungle of Costa Rica! During this 2-week course you will learn the fundamentals of ecological design, climates, soil science, earthworks, water management, food forests, annual food production & edible landscaping, closed-loop waste systems and much more. The Punta Mona PDC goes beyond our outdoor classroom and into our diverse, holistic farm, where you’ll experience permaculture in practice: plant propagation, humanure composting, water catchment, solar-powered natural structures, farm-to-table gourmet cooking, and living in a balanced, thriving community. Upon completion, you will receive your international 72-hour Permaculture Design Certificate…and be part of our global Punta Mona family forever.
This unique course melds two broad interdisciplinary studies, exploring the impact the health of our environment directly has on our personal wellbeing, specifically working with and alongside medicinal plants. This 26-day course will cover topics such as, regenerative lifestyle & design, integrating herbalism, community and social awareness, and working with living plants and
living people to cultivate resilience.
