About the Instructor
Jason Leue will be teaching this ”Introduction to Permaculture” Workshop. Jason recently completed the Permaculture Designers Certificate which is an intensive 72 hour Permaculture course that is taught all over the world. This Permaculture Designers Certificate or PDC for short, took students every other weekend for 3 months to amazing sites all over Oahu showing them Permaculture principals in action. Below is a photo from our first “Introduction to Permaculture” Workshop.
Each weekend students were challenged to come up with design solutions on site culminating in a final design presentation.
Before I took this 72 hour PDC I was watching DVD’s, reading and applying Permaculture design techniques for about a year. I was blown away by how much I learned still about Permaculture. It’s so important to learn from someone who knows. Please come to our “Introduction to Permaculture” workshop I’m sure you will be glad you did.
Also if you haven’t already heard, there will be another Permaculture Designers Certificate coming up at the end of July. This course is truly life changing and is a must for everyone interested in conscious living.

Read below what previous students have to say about the workshop.
“Jason is an excellent lecturer. He is able to explain terms and concepts easily to anyone with the desire to learn more about permaculture. The Intro class also gave like minded individuals a chance to learn what is happening locally and to network. I loved not only the class but the people I met during the class.”
“The workshop, Intro to Permaculture was both educational and insightful. The morning’s slide show gave me a very clear foundation on Permaculture. I also loved the setting! Naturally amongst trees. The walkabout was interactive and insightful where I could get a feel of it all, I could see what worked, what didn’t and why, and be able to readily integrate it, asking questions as things came up. Our tasty lunch break was great for casually sharing, exchanging and meeting others. The tour ended with a refreshing community tea time that was well timed and helpful in concluding the day together, saying our thanks and exchanging with others. This is all so instrumental in building and maintaining beautiful communities. What a blessing to have him, his beautiful family and the gardens so close in the area. Thank you!”
“Really enjoyed the class at Ailani Gardens. Have taken an intro to Permaculture Class before but learned totally different things at this one, so I highly suggest taking more than one with different teachers and different climate zones. I enjoyed learning about farming on the west side in a drier environment since my other class was taught on the north shore. Really liked being able to ask lots of questions, planting seeds and watching their daughters play with worms and chickens. Simple living at its’ best. Very inspirational, and hope to share this class and their CSA with as many friends as possible.”
“This is a Great intro workshop to Permaculture. I’ve actually taken it a number of times and each time there is more to learn. There is a nice balance between the introduction of the concepts and principles of Permaculture-the “classroom” side of things, and the experiential/activity side of things, i.e. digging around in the garden, take a tour of the farm. I highly recommend this to anyone who is interested in Permaculture, it’s a really great day of learning and fun. Thanks!”
