Permaculture Events in North America
PINA endorses the offerings of our diplomates, and lists them on this calendar to help you find quality education. All gatherings are either supported directly by PINA or have one of our diplomates or board members working on the organizing team.
All PINA-recognized PDCs meet or exceed the 72-hour curriculum standard. Our listings highlight unique qualities of each course. Click here to learn about the Permaculture Design Course.
North American scale gatherings, advanced certificate courses, and online PDCs may be found in our Continental listings on the left. Regional gatherings, PDCs, and workshops can be found using the interactive map on the right. To see selective lists, for example to compare PDCs, use the buttons above each group. PINA diplomates organizing or leading the events are linked within each listing to their biographies.

POSTPONED. The theme for the 14th International Permaculture Convergence is Children, Youth and Regenerative Education. The International Permaculture Convergences (IPCs) are epic gatherings of permaculture practitioners from around the world (with over 600 participants and more), to share knowledge and expertise and strategize about the future of the permaculture movement. They have been active since 1985 and bring together inspiring and experienced permaculturists to deliver diverse and engaging programmes. International Permaculture experts, teachers and practitioners talk and teach at these events.

THIS WINTER WE DREAM; THE ECO-FUTURE BECKONS. Hazel will unfold a vision of community coming together to repair eco-system functions by facilitating the return of Salmon, Beaver, and Fire. We celebrate the writing of Kim Stanley Robinson, author of several visionary science fiction books that explore the application of permaculture. We all need visions of positive and practical efforts to slow the Sixth Extinction and stabilize planetary ecosystems. We can move forward without the brittle and inappropriate institutions of the last half millennium. Our lives together will be sweeter as we learn to cooperate and grow into People of Place.
This Permaculture Design Certification (PDC) is a two-week residential intensive at OAEC December 5 - 18 (check-in is between 4-5pm on Saturday Dec 5th, and the course ends at noon on Friday Dec 18th). Using a combination of lecture, discussion, hands-on activities at OAEC’s 80-acre site, visits to local permaculture sites, and a group design project, you will have the chance to integrate and apply the concepts of permaculture design methodology during almost 100 hours of course time. Upon completion of the course, you will receive a Certificate of Permaculture Design.
