LIVE YOUR POTENTIAL!
Empower your life, your community’s life, and the life of the planet to live in resilience!  In the Applied Permaculture & Natural Building Apprenticeship, you will learn about solutions that can radically advance human well being and the health of our planet’s ecosystems. Discover through in-depth classes, hands-on experience, interactive design projects, field trips, slideshows, and more.

You will begin with an internationally-certified Permaculture Design Course (PDC). Topics will then be integrated through in-depth, hands-on, small group design and management projects. This will take place at the Ashevillage Institute’s demonstration site, one of the country’s leading eco-urban centers for sustainable living. The one-acre site features a 30,000-gallon rainwater, aquaponic pond system and greenhouse, and over 150 species of edible and medicinal plants. During the second part of the Apprenticeship, you will work side-by-side with 10 world renown natural building teachers — preparing for, and participating in the Natural Building Extravaganza.
