This course is the foundational 72 hour Permaculture Design Certification program, endorsed by PINA the Permaculture Institute of North America.We adapt our course to the northeastern corridor and to contemporary social and ecological issues in the United States and the world.


Our Permaculture design certification course imparts a positive and empowering vision for social and ecological transformation. We will train you to be a permaculture consultant who can apply the permaculture principles to a diversity of landscapes, scales and issues from rural to urban, and temperate to tropical environments.


Come be inspired by the possibilities of today and not by the fear of tomorrow! 


Permaculture Design is :


  • A design science that provides a new model for economic development.

  • Addressing the major social justice and environmental issues of our times from a whole systems perspective.

  • A worldwide movement that is helping to regenerate local ecologies and economies.


The certification connects you to an international world of designer’s, architects, organic farmers, and communities who all recognize it as a legitimate passport to another level of knowledge.

We look forward to working with the next group of amazing humans ready to transform the world!

John Hershey’s Permaculture Trees


Saturday October 12th - 10am to 2 pm


Come Visit, learn about and witness today!…before your very own eyes what the Future Food Forests of Tomorrows Farms will look like

Andrew Faust, raised Quaker as a member of the Downingtown Friends Meeting and a longtime Permaculture Educator in the region will co-lead this tour with Dale Hendricks who knows and loves the trees well and re-discovered them and is himself part of the Quaker community and a long time advocate and propagator of Unique plants and Trees.

A excerpt from a recent article about these amazing specimens and their history ;


on this rare and precious vestige of a True Permaculture, Fruit and Nut Tree Nursery- Not to be missed, Sign up today!

 "In 1953, J. Russell Smith called it “America’s No. 1 Tree Crop Farm.” Bill Mollison used it as a model for temperate permaculture. John Hershey’s Nut Tree Nursery in Downingtown, PA - less than an hour outside Philadelphia - is perhaps the most important collection of fruit and nut trees ever assembled on this continent, and though it was shuttered and subdivided after Hershey’s untimely death in 1967, its surviving trees still stand amidst the suburban sprawl of southeastern 
Pennsylvania. In medians, back yards, parking lots, and overgrown vacant lots you can find towering pecans, blight resistant grafted chestnuts, old nursery rows of grafted black walnuts, the sweetest persimmons, pawpaws, hazelnuts, hickories, sugary pod honey locusts, tannin-free edible acorns, and unsprayed bountiful apples - all of which bear prolifically without any maintenance or care. This treasure trove of trees is North America’s oldest living food forest - a thriving ecosystem, up to a century old in some parts, comprised of the best fruit and nut trees that can be grown here."
