The First Advanced Permaculture Course based on PEER-REVIEWED curriculum, hosted by the author and organizer, Matt Powers. The Advanced Permaculture Student Online is a collection of regenerative solutions & pathways for high schoolers, college students, and adults looking to start on careers that are meaningful, regenerative, profitable, proven, and valuable to their local communities. This is a 20-week video-based course with over 70 expert instructors from around the world who have greened deserts, grown tons of soil per acre per year, made professional-level mycology accessible to the home cultivator or startup mushroom farm, trained professional landscapers in permaculture, redefined soil science and composting as we know it, converted organic orchards to permaculture, witnessed the restoration of the ancient Molokai fish ponds, made impossible seed and plant adaptations possible, and much more. This course takes permaculture into the advanced fields of mycology, large-scale land restoration, market gardening, natural farming, alternative energy, social permaculture, ocean restoration, city planning, aquaculture, vermiculture, and more.

"I’d have to say that my understanding of the earth and permaculture in general has expanded to universal portions. As well as my beliefs in my ability to make a positive change. Before this coursework, I thought I might change my small homesite into a buffering area for the changing climate to make things easier personally. Now , aside from modeling a change for others, I think that even my site could make a measurable difference in the local climate, both environmental and social, and possibly global." 
- Dave M., current student
