Who Should Apply?



Educators, design professionals, natural builders, non­profit leaders, students, entrepreneurs, community organizers, activists, herbalists, and many others engaged with positive world change have attended ELIP in past years and experienced powerful growth, learning and transformation through our month together at Omega. ELIP’s frameworks and design practice provide powerful tools that can be used to add a regenerative perspective to any profession, projects, and future studies.

All levels of experience and prior study in ecological design and permaculture are welcome. Through a combination of lectures, discussion, hands­-on projects, field trips, community experience, design projects, presentations, and personal reflection, you will apply what you learn from faculty and each other, while opening your heart to the beauty and wisdom of nature. Prospective participants must be 18 or older to apply.

Participants in this 4-­week program will earn an internationally recognized Permaculture Design Certificate.
