Bones to Bloom Online

Ecological Design Course with Optional Permaculture Design Certification Track

using pre-recorded course videos and online class discussions

Posted February 6, 2021 by Robyn Mello

Our In-Person Bones to Bloom Eco-Design Course and PDC for Spring 2021 Sold Out in mid-December! However, we’ve continued to receive over a dozen waitlist inquiries since, and we caught wind that another PDC course in our region has decided to postpone their spring course. With such demand, we’re choosing to offer a web version of this course with weekly online discussions for $50 below our in-person early bird tuition rate. Ecological Design or Permaculture Design Certification tracks are both still available. If this option is not right for you, please consider registering for our fall course--"Bloom to Bones"--that we're also launching today! Details for that at

For the online course, students will be able to view, learn, and participate in all of our course’s modules remotely. While online students won’t have the benefit of being literally hands-on, each Friday six to seven hours of pre-recorded class time will be made available to view online, and we will be holding a 90-minute session every following Thursday evening from 6-7:30pm to answer follow-up questions and facilitate certain specific discussions and modules for online students. Additional time with teachers may become available if there is occasional need. There will also be two weeks of 2.5 hour Tuesday/Thursday sessions on PDC weeks for those who choose to pursue the full 72-hour Permaculture Design Certification Course. Certification requires completion of a final design project presented by each student.

This course is open to a maximum of 20 PDC students, with a total of 30 total registration slots.

  • Ecological Design Online Option: $600
  • Permaculture Design Online Option: $850
