PDC Cancellation Policy

For the Permaculture Design Certificate course the cancellation policy is as follows:


Cancellation Date Refund Policy
More than 2 months prior Refundable less $200 per person
2 months prior 50% refundable
1 month prior non-refundable


The Pearlstone Center reserves the right to cancel any program at any time. In the event of such a cancellation, you will receive a complete refund. *

If you need to cancel your registration at the last minute, but have someone who can take your place, we can often work this out with you. Let us know as far in advance as possible (so we can begin pre-course communications with your proxy).

Inclement Weather: The Pearlstone Center reserves the right to cancel a retreat due to inclement weather if, in its judgment, it will be unable to operate safely. In the event of such a cancellation, a full refund will be issued. If the retreat proceeds as scheduled, no refund will be available. ¬†We recommend booking a refundable airfare if you’re traveling from afar, on the off chance that we need to cancel for some reason.

*Our Permaculture Design Course tuition includes a copy of Practical Permaculture by Jessi Bloom and Dave Boehnlein, which will be sent to you as soon as you submit payment. Should you need to cancel, you get to keep the book, but your refund amount will be $35 less than listed the amount listed above.
