The Integral PermaCulture Academy manages the Permis currency, a special complementary currency for valuing exchanges within the permaculture community.
You can spend Permis for more permaculture courses, including & up to Diploma (degree) applied permaculture design level, with the Academy.
You can earn Permis (the complementary currency we use to exchange in our community) by doing these mini-courses.
For example ..
a) when you successfully finish a course, we give Permis (as well as your Certificate) in proportion to how well you've done;
b) if you make some valuable contribution to a course, in supporting your course companions, or to the Integral PermaCulture Designers Manual, the tutors can reward you with extra Permis;
c) and if you refer others to any of these courses, we'll also give you Permis for this outreach help.

How to Apply for a Bursary & other ways to help your economy with these courses
You will notice we propose a sliding scale for each course. This is a way of inviting us all to cooperate towards creating an eco-economy by sharing our blessings more fairly: those who have more give more, those who have less give less.
We do this in order to both value the great effort the teaching team put into creating and facilitating these big opportunities for learning how to design for a saner planet, and also make them as inclusive and accessible as possible to anyone who wants to enjoy these great resources.
But if you can't afford even the minimum amount on the sliding scale of a course that you would really like to do, don't worry!
To apply for a bursary, please simply write us an email about you, why you want to do the course (tell us your long-term vision!), & what your limiting factors are (why you can't afford to pay, or how much would be your limit).
our email is
If you would like to do something in exchange (instead of paying cash), please do add what kinds of skills & time you have available, as we always have much more work than time, and would welcome especially online administration help.
And there are more ways we love to help us all to co-create eco-economies!
See the "To Earn Permis" heading in this page for one option.
But you can also earn money by facilitating Study Circles or Support Groups based on these courses! (or any other permaculture subject you are passionate about)
Because we particularly love helping people to -
a) multiply the benefits of this precious knowledge in this way,
b) by at the same time helping permaculture enthusiasts to improve or even start their own more ethical economy,
c) not to mention increase the facilitation skills quotient in the world: so crucial for these Transition Times.
To explore this option, we reccommend you first enroll in the subject you would like to facilitate in and (after or at the same time) also enroll on the Facilitation Basics course.
I this way you will get personal mentoring and ongoing support in designing and running your chosen group: great action-learning!
