Workshops

Siskiyou Permaculture offers short workshops in addition to our Certificate courses.  We are a member of Cascadia Permaculture Institute, as well as adhering to the concepts of professional education started by Bill Mollison and Permaculture International.  This means that our certified courses are offered at a level of information commensurate with a course of study at college level.  We provide 84 hours of instruction for the Permaculture Design Course, and 40 hours of instruction for our advanced courses.  Workshops are designed to offer primarily additional hands-on experience or an intensive look at a single subject.
