Past Courses

TreeYo is dedicated to recognizing the collective genius that transpires during courses through continual course documentation. This allows past students to revisit the events of this unique educational experience by referencing photographs and other records. It is also a forum for future students to see how courses have run including elements like learning objectives and how the seasons affect host site offerings. Documentation of permaculture events contributes to the overall movement through visual and written demonstration of successes, obstacles, and surprises.  Furthermore, it is a tool for reaching out to new audiences via the internet.  If you are one of these people and would like more pictures on a specific topic feel free to contact us at:

Our past courses have been very lively and enriching for all of those who are involved.  Participants begin to see with new eyes, connect to their surroundings, form new communities and get lit about Permaculture.  We have fun while learning how to observe and interact with the natural world.  Students feedback has been really great and encourages us to keep pursuing new locations to facilitate this amazing curriculum.
