Regenerative organic agriculture restores soils and balances ecosystems.
- Use regenerative principles to rebuild soil organic matter and restore soil biodiversity
- Learn permaculture and organic farming practices, including conservation tillage, cover crops, crop rotation, and composting
- Attain hands-on experience growing nutrient dense food on our 16-acre farm
- Immerse yourself in ecosystem thinking and whole systems design while earning your Permaculture Design Certificate
- Change the world through regenerative and biodynamic farming
Work with nature, not against it
We’ll teach you how to work with nature, not against it. You’ll study natural agricultural techniques that grow healthy food at no cost to our planet.
Our program combines natural agricultural methods with science to teach totally renewable and practical farming techniques. You’ll set up your own farm system and be selling your own produce locally before graduation.
Learn practical knowledge and skills
You’ll take one hands-on class per month, diving deeply into topics such as permaculture, soil ecology, integrative pest management, practical farm management skills.
Our program goes beyond agriculture, too — you’ll have the opportunity to study writing, journalism, environmental advocacy, sustainable community development and more.
Hands-on work experience
You’ll learn farm-to-market skills through Community Supported Agriculture (CSA), Farmer’s Markets, and local restaurant sales. You’ll also gain valuable work experience through a 3-month farm internship.
You’ll learn the Transcendental Meditation technique, an evidence-based technique that enhances clear thinking, reduces stress, and promotes creativity.
In addition, our unique system of Consciousness-Based education will help you to connect everything you’re learning to who you are at your core.
You’ll graduate with an internationally-recognized certificate, a BA degree, and all of the skills and connections you need to secure a job in the field of sustainable agriculture.
What is Regenerative Organic Agriculture?
You’re probably already familiar with organic agriculture, which does not use GMOs, synthetic fertilizers, or artificial pesticides. However, most organic agriculture still relies on introducing natural fertilizers and pesticides into the growing process, a substitution method far from how nature actually operates.
Regenerative organic agriculture actually regenerates the natural resources used in the production of food during the farming process itself, thus supporting the entire surrounding ecosystem without the need to introduce outside substances. Regenerative agriculture is truly natural and sustainable.
