We normally offer a sliding scale for this course, and ask participants to offer what they can pay. The scale is between €700-€1300 for this professional, certified training. Those who can afford to pay more on the higher end of the scale will help those who can only pay less. The sliding scale recognises the differences in economic reality depending on what country a participant comes from, as well as their individual circumstances, so this is a practical way that people with more resources can act in solidarity. We don't offer reduced-fee work exchange options because this is an intense course, and we want every participant to be able to able to get the most out of it and not have to sacrifice learning because they can't pay a certain amount.

If you want to propose a different price based on your economic situation, please share with us what you want to contribute and why you need support by applying HERE:

Course summary

Permaculture Teacher Training with Focus on Refugees (PTT4R) is an international teachers training course offered in English, certified by the Permaculture Association of Britain, and organised by 12P Permaculture Design. The course is available to PDC holders from any country.

The invasion of the Ukraine and the hundreds of thousands of refugees seeking asylum in the European Union has focused attention on the issue of mass migration. There is now a much greater opportunity to support displaced people by teaching and training refugees to teach and train each other. As the Permaculture for Refugees (P4R) international work group states, "Our aim is to support refugees in transforming the places where they live —be these refugee camps or communities in receiving countries — into productive permaculture-designed communities, and ultimately to equip them for integration into society for the collective benefit of all." Following P4R's definition, we use the term ‘refugee' "interchangeably with asylum seekers, forced migrants, internally displaced peoples (IDPs), refugees and stateless person."

Join us for an intensive training that will provide you with an invaluable toolkit to use in the classroom, as well as life in general. The internationally-renowned teacher Rosemary (Rowe) Morrow’s teacher training draws on her decades of permaculture teaching experience. Whether you are already a teacher, or thinking of becoming one, the PTT4R makes teaching a transformative and fun exchange. Classrooms (indoor and outdoor) will never be the same again! While this course has a specific focus in how to facilitate permaculture education with refugees, the PTT4R is designed for anyone who wants to teach permaculture based on Rosemary’s participatory learning methods.
