The Monteverde cloud forest of Costa Rica is world-renowned and we are delighted to offer a course here at Valle Escondido Preserve, a biodiversity preserve and Permaculture farm. Former graduates of a Permaculture Institute PDC are our hosts, providing a welcoming environment that provides a glimpse of what can be done with the skillset of the PDC.
Participants will stay in the beautiful settings of the preserve, with abundant wild natural systems to learn from all around. Permaculture demonstrations from aquaculture to tropical agroforestry abound on-site. We will use the site to build our own skillsets, helping advance the goals of the caretaker. Course material is universal to every ecosystem, and the knowledge acquired in this class is easily applied in other locations and settings. Worldwide participants of a wide range of ages, abilities and backgrounds are attracted to this class. Please explore the preserve to learn more about Valle Escondido.
Participants receive an internationally recognized Permaculture Design Certificate from Permaculture Institute. The course syllabus can be found here.
