Finger Lakes Permaculture Institute
Offers Work Trade
for Permaculture Design Certificate Course
Join a small group of hard-working and fun-loving permaculture students to prepare the site of our Permaculture Design Certificate (PDC) course. If you can work well with a devoted crew in a small rural, off-grid community and can sustain a full day of thoughtful, purposeful, and hard manual labor, this may be a fun and affordable way to reduce the costs of earning a high-quality Permaculture Design Certificate.
Beginning July 16, just after the Northeast Regional Permaculture Convergence, well devote eight days to setting up the permaculture camps bathrooms, shower, campsites, kitchen, waste systems and classroom facilities. The weekend of the 21st is free to explore Ithaca, the Finger Lakes and the Grassroots Festival of Music. On July 27th join our learning community to dive into your permaculture training until August 12th. Work-traders will stay until August 15th to help deconstruct and pack-up the permaculture camp.
Your PDC tuition is reduced to $600 for your contribution.
We will begin reviewing applications on a rolling basis after April 22nd, 2012.
Work-Trade Days: July 1620, 23-27, and August 13-15.
PDC Days: July 27-August 12
