12-Day Intensive Workshop

  • Do you seek to live compassionately without the unnecessary exploitation of people, animals and the environment?
  • Are you concerned about climate change, peak oil and future generations?
  • Are you interested in changing how we interact with other species, ecosystems and our human communities?

If you answered yes to any of the above, then this full permaculture design course is for you! Wild Earth Farm and Sanctuary is proud to offer our 2nd Vegan Permaculture Design Certificate Course, at our 200 acre farm in Eastern Kentucky at the foothills of Appalachia.
