Frequently Asked Questions
Are there readings, videos, and other materials to supplement our time together?
Yes. We provide a very comprehensive online course reader for free, and recommend you purchase the 2nd Edition of Earth User’s Guide to Permaculture by Rosemary Morrow.
What if I miss some classes? Can I make them up?
Yes. Once you enroll in our Permaculture course you are a lifetime member. You can make up material you missed during the next session, or even just come join us again for a refresher. Additionally, we often arrange with other California Permaculture teachers so that our students can make up courses with them, and vice versa. Isn’t the permaculture community great?
What time does class start and end?
Class meets Saturday and Sunday 9am-5:30pm with a lunch break. We typically have a potluck and Santa Cruz Permaculture Guild Meeting on Saturday night. On rare occasions the group may decide to begin earlier to catch a particular field trip and/or end earlier. We never end after 5:30pm.
