Would you like to make a difference and leave our planet better than you found it? Immerse yourself in hands-on permaculture in action.
This course offers an in-depth introduction into permaculture with a diversity of applications:
– Abundant water
– Living soils
– Renewable energy
– Healthy plants
– Water-harvesting earthworks
– Natural building
– Community living
…and creating the conditions for a life based on the patterns in nature—all while immersed in the daily life of the Sunburst community.

In this 14-day course we will focus on land based systems with as much practical, outdoor hands-on work as possible. Class time consists of traditional lectures, guest presentations, group discussions, games, exercises, photo shows, movies, and practical design work.
Additionally, we will explore ‘invisible structures’ — the social, cultural, political and economic structures that shape much of our world today. Permaculture design is embedded in the course by the structure and environment we create as a dynamic group.

This course involves group work in which students complete a real-life design project. Through completion of this 72-hour PDC, participants gain conceptual and practical knowledge of permaculture, and receive a certificate to practice Permaculture Design.

Sunburst Sanctuary is a majestic, 4000-acre ranch 30 miles north of Santa Barbara in the rolling hills of California’s Central Coast region. The site is a rich setting for studying a broad range of regenerative systems, as it includes vegetable production and emerging fruit production systems; rangeland and livestock; small- and large-scale compost production; thriving wilderness and wildlife; extensive creek systems; a meditation retreat center; and a cooperative residential community.
Care of the earth and growing organic food have been perennial themes of Sunburst Community’s 50-year history of living together, working together, and raising consciousness on the planet. Sunburst was an early pioneer of large-scale production and distribution of organic foods, and remains committed to seeking ways that humanity can have a beneficial rather than harmful impact on the planet and each other.

PLEASE NOTE: Sunburst Sanctuary guidelines include NO pets, NO smoking/tobacco/alcohol/recreational drugs, and NO open flames (incense, candles, camp stoves, etc.). Thank you!
