"The Permaculture Yogi Design Course opened me up to a whole new world of understanding all the possible ways to connect and to heal Mama Earth"
I can't thank you enough,
Angie Gonzalez !
The Permaculture Design Course we just completed has opened me up to a whole new world of awareness & understanding of all the possibilities we have to connect and heal Mama Earth.
To anybody thinking of taking the Permaculture Yogi design course I HIGHLY recommend it.
You'll learn invaluable tools and connect with a massive community of Gaia Warriors to help change the world for the better! Aho!
Permaculture Yogi RL-PDC Graduate,
"Now I am inspired greatly to regenerate the Earth, care for the people and heal through local organic foods and medicines every day"
Through taking the PDC and learning in the classroom and in the garden, the more inspired I became.
I started to realize that there were ways of living in community where stress is reduced, as is waste, and every action taken is with love and selfless service (just what I'm all about)!
Now I am inspired greatly to regenerate the Earth, care for the people and the Earth, as well as heal through local organic foods and medicines, and have fun doing it every day!
Permacultureyogi RL-PDC graduate,
"Taking this course has changed the way I look at the planet and my relationship to and with it."
After the Permacultureyogi RL- PDC, where ever I am now I observe my environment with a permie mind, looking at ecological patterns; interactions of plants, insects, animals and birds; checking for wind and sun patterns, water systems and a regenerative culture.
The principles of permaculture are valuable to an environmentally conscious, nutrition centric mind – it demonstrates how humans can be a part of the planetary system as an asset.
Now I'm able to share what I have learned in a way that creates access to new ways of living.
Permaculture is more than a gardening system it is a way of life and with in the permaculture movement there has been a rise of intentional communities who share living quarters and who live harmoniously in co-housing operations that puts to use many of our permaculture principles.
One example principle is integrate rather than segregate.
The intention during our course is to experience the spirit of social permaculture and this more integrated way of sharing resources with in a community, the idea during our meal breaks is to prepare healthful meals as a group and exchange recipes, tips and kitchen tricks while we have fun living communally for the 10 days.
This will be a great opportunity to learn from and support each other in class and create working teams as we live a permaculture lifestyle.
We will also have time for a balanced flow of activities.
