At Plant Path nursery we believe education is just as important as propagation, which is why we are offering a number of different workshops, plant walks, and even a full 72 hour permaculture design course in Maryland.

We aim to empower everyone in this world with the knowledge, understanding, and hands on experience necessary to create a life of abundance, diversity, and resilience. As such, we offer a range of educational opportunities, and there are work trade options on many of our programs for those who have limited financial means. We will also put out video content that can be of benefit to anyone with access to the internet.


Our motto is "Each one, teach ten." 


In this simple and approachable way we can grow this movement exponentially and reach the whole world in less than a decade! Register today to join us in developing a truly regenerative culture.

Practical Permaculture Series

Permaculture is a design science that aims to create a permanent culture. It is a way of caring for the earth and every living being so that they may continue to thrive indefinitely. Permaculture emphasizes interdependence, diversity, resilience, and regenerative practices. 

In this 12 part series we will spend 72 hours covering every aspect of permaculture and going step-by-step through hands-on projects. Students will be taught all of the necessary skills to move forward with confidence. Throughout the course, we will be sending students home with new plants and mushroom cultures to incorporate into their own permaculture gardens. Our goal is to empower everyone with knowledge, relationships, and experiences that enable us to live in a way that is harmonious and symbiotic.

Over the course of an entire growing season, we will meet the third weekend of each month (April, May, June, July, September and November) for a total of 12 six hour sessions on Saturdays & Sundays.
We will explore:
   -Water management
   -Soil building
   -Forest gardening
   -Perennial vegetables
   -Plant identification & botany
   -Fungi for the future
   -Food preservation

-Digital permaculture design
   -And much, much more.

Every day will include some lecture, and lots of time touring and working in the garden. Each weekend we will be visiting a variety of different permaculture sites in the area to better understand how permaculture principles can be applied to any situation. Upon completion of the course, students will receive a Permaculture Design Certificate and the foundational skills to begin practicing permaculture anywhere in the world. There has never been a better time to attend this course… It has been said “the best time to plant a tree is fifty years ago. The second best time is right now.” Come join us as we plant more trees!
