Permaculture Design Course

The Linnaea Farm Permaculture Design Course


Coming Soon! New Programs will be launched in 2024.

Our incredibly popular and in demand Permaculture Design Course is back and we will be offering several programs next year. 


Permaculture has the potential to be a positive solution to many of the challenges our global society faces today. It is a design science based on observing and integrating patterns of nature. It goes beyond ‘sustainable living’, and enters ‘regenerative’ living – producing beyond our individual needs, and healing/improving the land as we do so.


If you have been seeking a way to not only decrease your negative impact (“footprint”) on the world, but also increase your positive one (“handprint”), this course is for you.

It is during these turbulent, chaotic times that we – as a species – have the opportunity to restore the damage we have done and lay the foundation for a future in which we recognize our inherent connectedness with nature.


During these two week on-site immersive experiences, you will get to learn from some of the greatest minds in the permaculture world in Canada.

Farm-fresh food and on-site accommodation in a lakeside farmhouse including an ecological gardening library available. Our teachers share results of their cutting-edge work and how they’ve embraced Nature’s unsurpassed ability to adapt and thrive in the most adverse circumstances.


This is your Team section. It's a great place to introduce your team and talk about what makes it special, such as your culture and work philosophy. Don't be afraid to illustrate personality and character to help users connect with your team.
