2024 Certified Garden Master Course

January 29 - February 2

The Certified Garden Master course is a 5 day in-person event taught by Helen Atthowe and hosted by Paul Wheaton at his permaculture education center near Missoula, MT.

Most Master Garden courses offered by state universities include large sections about pesticide use and safety and non-organic approaches to gardening. Not so with this course!

With the Certified Garden Master course, you will learn organic, veganic, no-till, and permaculture gardening knowledge and skills. This course will focus on soil and habitat-building for beneficial organisms and systems thinking for gardeners and farmers: how to manage relationships rather than just crops.

Our goal is to understand ecological functions and interactions within plant, soil, microorganism, and insect communities. You will learn how to identify and manage all the relationships that make up a healthy farm-garden-ecosystem–one that does not require pesticides or large off-farm fertilizer inputs.
