Regeneration Nation Costa Rica presents:

Permaculture Professionals Program

Using the Edges and Valuing Diversity

This 3-month interactive program begins September 20th, 2024

*** Only 14 seats left! ***

… Let’s get it done together.

Your permaculture education taught you how to observe, contemplate, & interact with the environment…

But what about starting a business & finding clients?

This Permaculture Professionals Program is uniquely tailored to help you channel your passion for permaculture into a regenerative enterprise, by combining contemplative design with the support of your cohort’s group mind. 

The included Permaculture Business Design Course is a self-paced series of video lessons and exercises crafted to guide you through the process of building a holistic business plan through Assessment, Research, Analysis, and Design.

While going through the course material to build and implement your design, you’ll be in a cohort of peers doing the same. In our weekly live calls, you’ll gain clarity, confidence, commitment, and counsel that would take many years to acquire on your own.

If you’ve ever wanted to be part of a supportive community of like-minded entrepreneurs working toward creating a more cared-for world, together…

Join us at the Roundtable! 

Design your offer based on what you’d love to do, informed by what people are eager to invest in.

There are limitless ways to practice your passion. Large-scale designs and installations aren’t most permies’ first foot in the door, so don’t stress if you don’t feel ready for them yet. There are many ways to practice permaculture, and we need permies to penetrate as many aspects of our society and ecosystem as possible.

This program simplifies discovering your niche, developing an offer, and designing a plan forward. We do this by developing relationships, engaging in market research, and tuning into the life you want to live. Along the way, you’ll also learn contemporary business skills through the permaculture lens in a way that’s easy to understand for those new to entrepreneurship.

The course material guides you step-by-step in designing your business model like you would design a landscape, from patterns to details, using slow and small solutions. As you work with permaculture and its principles in this light, you’ll deepen your appreciation for their brilliance.

The course material is fortified by interactive guest presentations and success stories from other permaculture professionals in various fields. You’ll expand your perspective on applying permaculture professionally to develop confidence with your place in your ecosystem.

Whether you dream of starting your own business or want to enhance the value of what you’ve already begun, doing so in the company of other permies doing the same will significantly improve your ability to realize those dreams.

Let’s redefine what’s possible in permaculture together!

So, now you get to choose.
How would you like your new business plan served up?

 

1) Do you like your education DIY style with pre-recorded lessons you can follow along with at your own pace?

2) Or do you like it with a side of community, live guest presentations, and accountability support?


This foundational course is a comprehensive self-study vault, that provides you with a structured path to assess, research, analyze, and design your permaculture passion into a viable business.

Expand your perspective on how permaculture can be practiced so you can find the niche that’s perfect for you.

Gain clarity around your unique vision and how it meets the needs of your region to purposefully design a financially regenerative enterprise.

Enhance your professional skill set through training videos, insight tools, worksheets, and other guided exercises.

Proceed through the lessons at your own pace to develop your offer, invisible infrastructure, marketing strategies, and operational procedures.

It’s a start-to-finish roadmap for the motivated permaculture entrepreneur.

This program will save you unmeasurable amounts of time, money, and enthusiasm typically lost when starting a business with an underdeveloped plan.

As a member of this program, you’re a member of a mastermind

 

Napoleon Hill coined the term “mastermind” in the 1920s to refer to:

“The coordinated knowledge & effort of two or more people, working toward a common purpose, in the spirit of harmony.”

The collective mind that results ends up being greater than the sum of its parts.

Mastermind groups offer invaluable opportunities, including:

• Networking and making life-long friends
• Sharpening your existing skills
• Integrated education
• Brainstorming
• Accountability
• Contribution and fulfillment
• Challenging you to set exciting goals – goals you might not achieve otherwise

• In short, support!

What this mastermind looks like in action…

Each of our mastermind calls begin with a short check-in and a contemplation exercise to help you evaluate your goals and approach from a new angle.

Afterward, the rest of the call will be filled with different members taking turns describing something they’re working on, with opportunities for other members present on the call to chime in, ask clarifying questions, and offer advice. Shares will be timed and facilitated to keep things moving.

The experience concentrates creative solution-making power into a powerful opportunity for collective growth.

Together is Better

Whether you’re a solopreneur or you prefer to work with a team, building your business in council with other caring dedicated people & benefitting from their wisdom will enhance the impact you make on the lives of those you serve.

Bonus #1

1-on-1 Strategy Call with Jason Thomas

I’ve designed this program as a comprehensive guide through the business development process, interwoven with insight-inducing activities to take what’s learned and apply it directly to your project. However, I understand the value in receiving personal assistance to sort out our ideas and stay on track.

To ensure you feel like you have the support you need, you’ll be welcomed to schedule a 90-minute strategy call with me to evaluate your options and clarify the best path forward. You can schedule this session early on or once you get more of your infrastructure laid out, as you need.

Additional calls are also available upon request.

Bonus #2

Weekly Office hours

Sometimes the answer to a single question is all you need to get unstuck.

The mastermind calls are excellent opportunities to go deep into supporting each other, but there’s something to be said about a good old fashion Q&A round with someone who’s several steps ahead of you. Each week, I’ll host an “office hours” time block, dedicated to answering your questions about tech, administration, or any other aspect of the process that has you hung up.

With each member building a similar format of business, the questions of one person can spark inspiration for another. These Q&A sessions are excellent for gaining clarity around what you’ll learn in the prerecorded sessions, support in implementing them, or just providing a sounding board to pass your ideas across.

Bonus #3

Email support in-between calls

At any time during the program, if you have a question about the lesson material or homework and want to run it by me, send me an email! I’m dedicated to your success and want you to feel the support you need. Whether it’s content related, customer specific, tech support, or even just a mindset shift that you need help with, you’re not alone.

Just send me an email and I, or someone on my team, will get back to you within 48 hours to keep you moving forward!

Hi, I’m Jason Thomas

With over 20 years in the permaculture movement and a background in business, I bridge ecologically-focused entrepreneurs with the 21st-century tools and business practices I’ve found useful in my own endeavors.

As a co-founder of the Fruition Center for Holistic Ecology and the voice behind Regeneration Nation Costa Rica, I’ve dedicated my life to bridging the gap between permaculture principles and contemporary business strategies.

I offer consultation for ecologically and socially regenerative entrepreneurs committed to strategically setting up their business for success. I’m driven by a passion to empower visionaries to become ambassadors for a more sustainable humanity.

Among all entrepreneurs I help succeed, permaculturists hold some of the greatest potential to make

the critical lasting change we need to see in the world.

Join me on this adventure and become one of those who makes it!

A few words from folks I’ve been working with

The information shared in this course has been fantastic. The lessons follow the permaculture principles and their application in a very clear and insightful way. This course isn’t just for those with a PDC who want to start a permaculture business; it’s valuable for anyone interested in starting a business using these principles.

Brooklyn B.

Permaculture Student

The workbooks and exercises are worth the price of admission. This course helped me refine my goals and the life I want to live (my Why) and better identify my ideal customer. I was not solid in marketing, so that aspect helped me a lot. Jason is an enthusiastic instructor, and I look forward to the class sessions every week. The course material has exceeded my expectations, being much more detailed and interactive than I anticipated.

Scott M.

Permaculture Designer/Podcaster, Thriving The Future

This course helps bring the noble ideas of the permaculture principles into practical business applications. The exercises that clarify your values, motivations, and unique offerings are helpful in creating an inspiring and sustainable enterprise. Jason consistently provides invaluable insights from his extensive experience and generously gives his time and attention to support each student.

Ryan P.

Permaculture Student

When I met Jason, I had just finished my PDC and wanted to start doing designs professionally. I was inexperienced and found it difficult to map out the needed elements of a permaculture business.

Jason assisted me in clarifying the scope of my operations, gradually increased my confidence in my abilities, and provided me with lots of boots-on-the-ground advice. He helped me recognize my strengths and capabilities, and I found his advice to be very practical.

Applying the permaculture method to business coaching felt both wise and effective. His insightful commentary has been motivating me to step into the unknown. I definitely encourage anyone who’s starting a new venture to jump on a call with Jason and see what he has to say.

Taylor S.

Permaculture Designer, Bowing Branches

Having never managed a business before, I greatly value Jason’s practical and easy-to-apply guidance. The time and energy invested into cultivating clarity around my deeper desires and those of the clients I’m serving have paid off manyfold in these first few months, and that benefit will continue and grow well into the future.

Jason’s practical, clear, and articulate communications have been built upon years of experience and dedicated study. Having worked with Jason and knowing what I now know, I can confidently say that he guided me from floundering to flourishing.

During the calls, I felt empowered, heard, and supported, and I’ve received a lot of helpful information. I know there’s still more to learn, so it’s nice to know I can show up again when I’m ready for more.

We can go much further when we work together and share our strengths and experiences with one another.

I recommend anyone wanting to make the world a better place through growing their enterprise to join the mastermind to connect with other souls on a similar journey. We can all benefit from each other’s experiences and insights. It’s teamwork that makes the dream work.
Gracias!

Travis B.

Permaculture Designer, REGENESIS Permaculture Design and Education

We lucked into working with Jason! He’s been instrumental in refining our process at each step of our growth. His processes have brought us clarity in our long-term growth considerations and planning for potential challenges and bottlenecks.

He brings a critical eye to processes, a warmth of spirit to communications, and an open, supportive manner when collaborating with our team.  You won’t go wrong working with Jason; your projects will greatly benefit from his support and systems.

Jesse T.

Program Services Manager, Permaculture Institute of North America

Jason has been working with our team and offering insights and feedback on our systems and processes. He is a meticulous systems thinker who pays attention to details and thoroughly considers the flow of our processes. Jason poses excellent questions that prompt us to think deeply.

Jason is easy to work with, easygoing, kind, and generous with his time and information. He knows his stuff and has significantly helped us clarify our messaging and resolve any kinks in our program.

Elizabeth L.

Admin Team Member, PcX: The Permaculture Crossing

I have land in Costa Rica and was planning to do a fundraiser to develop it. I was having a hard time keeping up with the steady change of things, feeling alone with the project, and dealing with the high costs of development.

Jason helped me with insights and information about what the project was going to need, especially if I wanted to develop it using crowdfunding. Our time together helped me develop a more detailed view of the project and more clarity about the steps needed to do things right.

I liked his direct approach, honesty, good insights, and knowledge of different business models. He gave me some good ideas for networking possibilities. I like his methods and look forward to starting again when I’ve raised the needed funds to build my dream how I want.

Corey T

Social Worker, Heart Space

We bought a farm in Costa Rica in 2019 and wanted to find ways to make it profitable and sustainable in a way where we can serve humanity with our healthy living concept. 

In our time with Jason, we found out what works and what doesn’t work in Costa Rica. We found out about other projects, their challenges, and how they dealt with them. Also, we learned smart ways to work with a farm and how to implement powerful strategies. 

I learned not to burn money like I did in the past.  Lots of landowners are burning out in the amount of work and losing the relationships with their partners they came here with. For anyone thinking of buying a farm in Costa Rica to live a sustainable life, I can recommend this service to keep you from losing money here in Costa Rica like so many others do.

Thomas R

Wellness Coach, Finca Curcuma

I’d been thinking it was time to get a coach, and when we met, I saw Jason had experience in what I needed. Before I started, I needed help uncovering why I was doing what I was doing. Through some thought-provoking discussions and exercises, I saw more clearly that the direction I was going in didn’t resonate with where I am in life, what’s important to me, and the best way to go about it. With Jason’s encouragement, I was able to pivot with my instincts. 

I like how the sessions are structured to build on each other, starting from a foundation of my values and missions in life. The emails are prompt, practical, and thorough. The weekly homework and instructions are clear and concise.

I’m enjoying the journey and would say it’s been an immense help to be guided through building a business like this. Jason is personable, professional, and extremely insightful. The program and communication are invaluable, and it’s been an overall fun and helpful process.

Kyle J.

Dating & Relationship Coach, Sustainable Love Coaching

Take the time to invest in your invisible infrastructure

Each project is unique. With my experience, systems, and commitment to your success, paired with the collaborative support of our cohort and guest presenters, we’ll dive deep into your vision and desired lifestyle, tailoring the approach to ensure you and your project move forward in a thoughtful and balanced way.

Regenerative enterprises empower people to spend their time, money, and other resources in harmony with the planet, living beings, and future generations. To improve their chances for success, it’s vital that these initiatives embrace sound business practices that are in alignment with their ethics and values, as well as modern-day wisdom.

As with land management

By taking the time to assess your business and design it for maximum efficiency, you embrace the opportunity to minimize the potential hurdles present in most business ventures.

The permaculture design method holds the key to revolutionizing the success of start-up endeavors and established businesses alike. It harmonizes the many inspired ideas that creative visionaries dream up into co-supportive systems and a phased path forward.

 

You don’t have to go it alone!

Designing those systems alone in the vacuum of your own thoughts can sometimes lead to uncertainty and procrastination. Having an ally, or a whole community of allies, to help you sort through your options, ask clarifying questions, offer pragmatic perspective, and provide valuable resources can be invaluable for your business’s success (not to mention your sense of confidence as you explore the process.)

Frequently Asked Questions

If I only had an hour to solve a problem, I’d take 55 minutes to consider the right question.  – Abraham Lincoln

Does it matter where I live?

Not really. There will always be nuances in strategy and implementation determined by local laws and customs, but the principles behind a good design remain the same. The process you’ll learn will guide you to better understand your logistical landscape, no matter where you live or what niche you decide to focus on.

Is this a program to build a permaculture-focused profession, or a course on how to use the permaculture method to design businesses?

Both! I’ve been using the permaculture design method to help entrepreneurs of various regenerative-focuses to properly assess, research, analyze, and design their business ideas for more efficient and effective implementation.

What better business to use this methodology on than that of a permaculture professional? There are too many people who’ve taken their PDC but lack foundational business skills and confidence to actually begin doing much with what they’ve learned.

I’m on a mission to change that and to use the very wisdom we’ve been taught to practice as the mechanism for making it happen.

What if I still don't have hands-on practice doing design and implementation?

All the more reason to get started. While taking a season off to volunteer on a permaculture farm can be a wonderful experience, it’s neither required nor does it guarantee you the confidence you need to be a professional.

Confidence is built from making designs and implementing them. That’s not to say that you should design someone’s 20-acre homestead as your first client. There are many less risk-intensive options to start building your confidence and portfolio… WHILE making money doing them.

This program is designed to walk you through the steps of gaining experience as you build your portfolio and client-base.

What career options exist beyond landscape design?

The options are limitless! What’s your passion? What does your region need most?

In this program, we’ll explore an array of options for how you can specialize your focus, based on your gifts, interests, and the needs of those around you. Take this program, for example! Permaculture is applicable to many industries.

In the company of 15+ innovative minds, you’ll discover the application that’s right for you. Upon signing up for the program, you’ll have access to a report I’ve created called “77 Ways to Practice Permaculture Professionally.”

How am I going to get my first clients?

Potential clients are all around you. They’re among the people you already know and live amidst. The trick is that most of them don’t really know what permaculture is, so explaining it with the jargon you learned just leaves them lost and uncertain. Taking the time to learn what they need and want (from them directly) is the ticket.

This program will walk you through the process of discovering what that is and designing your business and marketing around it. Through the process, you’ll grow naturally comfortable sharing what you do in a way that’s met with curiosity and interest, because you’ll have learned how to be curious and interested, yourself.

Do I need to start my own business?

Not necessarily.
It’s true – many, perhaps most, successful permaculture “designers” end up starting their own businesses, and this program will walk you through the steps to successfully establishing your regenerative enterprise. It’s also probably no surprise that there are very few job openings available from companies looking for “permaculturists.” However, what you’ve learned is applicable to many trades, and many employers will count themselves lucky to have you on board.

By following the process outlined in this program, you’ll get clearer about what you want to offer and who will find it beneficial. Making an appealing job proposal to an existing organization isn’t too different than pitching your services to an ideal client. With our guidance, unique opportunities will become easier to discover!

How do I watch the replays and other bonus material?

As a member of the Permaculture Professionals Business Development Program, you’ll receive access to the private membership space on PINA’s Mighty Network, PcX: The Permaculture Crossing, where you can access the replays, our communication forum, and other members-only content.

What if I'm not happy with the program?

I’ve been there. I’ve taken several online courses and programs over the years, and I’ve hired several coaches. There was only one time that I felt the program didn’t deliver what it promised, and they didn’t offer a guarantee. That feeling of being stuck is something I’ll never impose on my clients.

If you engage in this material and come to your first calls and feel like this program isn’t designed for your success, let us know. If there’s nothing we can do to make it more meaningful for you, and your request was sent within 30 days the program beginning, we’ll refund you 100% of the tuition price.

You made it this far.
What else do you need to know?

People like yourself, who are passionate about the well-being of the planet and its inhabitants, are a rare breed in this world.

The fact that you took a Permaculture Design Course says that you have a desire to do something with that passion.

What are you waiting for?

Whatever it is, this program is designed to help you through it. Make 2024 the year that you bring purpose to your profession.

Building a business doesn’t have to be complicated. It’s a series of steps that, when properly planned and executed, can enhance the quality of your life forever.

As my PDC teacher Stephen Brooks often says:

“If not you, who? If not now, when?”

Do you have any other questions?

I'd love to hear from you. Don't hesitate to reach out.
