The FarmSchool at Renaissance Farms


The live PDC is the on campus, in person version of our PDC. It is a three week intense course of study here on the farm which incorporates both the basic PDC and advanced permaculture practicum. The benefit of the live course is that we have the opportunity to touch the soil, to practice and experience examples of what we’re learning.

You will need to plan to bring your own yurt, tent, tiny house, or RV to the course (or to rent one and we may be able to help with that). in 2022, we will gather en plein air under a canopy for the more academic portions of the course. We will go out onto the farm for practicum. This is a long, intense three weeks. You will leave here well prepared for whatever Permaculture path you follow.
