Permaculture Design Advisor Program with Delvin

Upgrade your life team with personalized permaculture design advisor support from a seasoned design teacher.


Do monthly or seasonal hour long check in’s in person, by skype, phone or email. For some this may simply be an opportunity to interact and explore permaculture design methods. For others this can support you to create a learning plan which can evolve and change over time. Some may use this opportunity to work on a garden, livelihood or life design to support their next level.

Open to people of any experience, this program will support you to strengthen your life design and achieve your goals while saving time, energy and money in the process.


The program begins with an hour long initiation and mentorship on your life path for $111.

Continuing support is $30 / hr for ongoing sessions which would happen once a month or once a season. Sessions are one hour and include a 30 minute follow up by email sharing resources, recommendations and notes from the session.

Additional email correspondence is welcomed but will be timed on the $30 / hr rate. Delvin recognizes that this program takes up ‘psychic space and time’, as he is thinking about and holding mental space for those he is supporting outside of our paid time. Participants become part of his life in a powerful way.


To register or for more information.


If you complete 12 sessions successfully, Delvin will compose a short letter of support you can use in your CV.

This program offers support but not consulting. Delvin can give advice, support, resources and recommendations using his depth understanding of the permaculture design toolkit and global movement. Delvin retains the right to terminate the mentorship at any time for any reason. Continually taking courses from key Permaculture Pioneers and visiting sites around the world while creating learning and teaching tools as part of his Doctorate in Permaculture Education, Delvin can share the new edge of permaculture design with you.

Delvin has 15 years of experience in the field including being taught and mentored by Permaculture Elders and Pioneers around the planet. He did a PDC, Diploma and Masters Degree with Bill Mollison. He has done advanced teacher trainings with Rosemary Morrow, David Holmgren, Geoff Lawton, Patricia Michael, Robyn Francis, the Bullock Brothers, Tom Ward, Jude Hobbs, Larry Santoyo, Scott Pittman, Michael Becker, Robin Wheeler, Starhawk, Looby Macnamara, Robina McCurdy and Robin Clayfield. He is an accredited teacher through the Permaculture Research Institute (Australia), Permaculture Association (UK) and a Field Mentor through the Permaculture Institute. Currently he is doing graduate work under the mentorship of Larry Santoyo and Looby Macnamara.


Delvin’s Advanced Permaculture All-Seasons 2.5 year course was a delightful cornupeia of blessings for me:  I made excellent connections with the creme-de-la-creme of local permaculture folks, as well as some of the top permaculture people in the world (Becker, Hemingway, Pitman, Santoyo).  The spacing allowed me to work deeply on my design projects with Delvin mentoring me monthly with just the right proportion of encouragement and challenge.

Delvin Solkinson is a profound mentor who, post-PDC, has provided an incredible way to continue on the permaculture path while learning from and inspiring others in the local and international communities. His gentle guidance and consistently helpful monthly feedback continues to motivate my own progress as do all the visionaries in my class.

Infinite gratitude for the continued opportunity to meet, mutually inspire and aspire with others on permaculture adventures! The advance course filled a gap that appeared when I finished my PDC by providing me with a container to document and share in my own journey while allowing me to continue learning from Delvin and other brilliant beings. buzzzzzzz…..

My investment in this program has been totally amazing and worthwhile and game changing!  I really appreciate that this program is accessible and flexible.  I also appreciate all the updates and reminders you give us every month to get inspired and give a little kick in the butt.

The Advanced Permaculture course has guided me to stay on track with my permaculture learning path and has encouraged me to push my edges with projects and achieving my goals.  Since starting the program, I have started to teach design courses, school programming and other courses. Connecting for in person meet ups seasonally has offered me an opportunity to learn from and be inspired by others.  All of the documentation that I have been creating as part of the process has boosted my CV exponentially and allowed me opportunities on the path that i would have never dreamed. I highly recommend this program.

The APDC brings together spirit, intellect and intentionality for those wanting to rise higher. Delvin is a master at bringing together the pieces, at extemporaneous bouts of deep wisdom fueled with passion, and at coaxing others to reach to their higher potential

I really appreciate your way of teaching and I truly believe it is your gift. You bring ritual together with deep learning. I always come away from a class motivated by your passion, your impeccable choice of words and the skillful ways in which you engage others. I feel honoured to learn from you!

In this course I became empowered and was encouraged to design and integrate all aspects of my life. I was supported to create my own curriculum, career and life path, while being guided to complete a Diploma in design.

Delvin is an amazingly positive and inspiring leader who seemingly tirelessly leads rich and thorough permaculture classes. His ability to motivate students to reach for their full potential and dreams is unsurpassed by any other instructor I have ever had.

Delvin is a remarkable inspirational teacher. I have attended 2 PDCs and one Advanced Course with Delvin, and now, he is mentoring me towards my Diploma. I am receiving the highest level of Permaculture Education with Delvin. He travels around the world to continuously deepen his knowledge of Permaculture and brings back to his student the State of Art in his amazing teachings. Delvin is a deep, profound, insightful and magnificent Soul who embodies the Permaculture way of living. He has changed my life in so many ways and I will be forever and always grateful for his unconditional support and encouragement on my Permaculture path.
