The world only needs more Permaculturists” – Beau Wickboldt

The World’s Most Comprehensive, Some Say the Best Online Permaculture Design Course

Beau Wickboldt – Professional Permaculture Designer and Educator

Beau is one of the Leading Permaculture Design Educators in the world today. He works to spread Sustainable Education throughout the world. He climbed the corporate ladder until he found Permaculture Design (his Passion) and decided to take his Permaculture Design Knowledge and put it to work by teaching others. Retiring as a Technical Services Manager, he takes an engineering approach to Permaculture and Natural Building. He works to show how we can break down what may seem like complex Permaculture Design subjects to smaller parts, and then use them to build our Permaculture Systems. He brings Systems-Based Thinking to Permaculture Design and believes in teaching Permaculture “By the Book“, as taught by the founder of Permaculture: Bill Mollison. Beau believes that everyone can be a Master Permaculturist and he makes learning easy by explaining complex subjects in simple language.

As Albert Einstein once said, “If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough.”

Beau has made his Passion the learning of Permaculture Design and Sharing it with the world in a simple, but yet profound, way.
