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.
