Common Circle Education announces Green Jobs & Sustainability Across America 2012 Bicycle Tour

Beaverton, OR - September 19, 2011 — Common Circle Education, the nation’s leadership, sustainable living and permaculture school, is thrilled to extend a warm invitation to ride your bicycle with us across the country learning about sustainability and permaculture.  Our most powerful program yet - a supported cross-country tour (support vehicle, meals and lodging included) to green businesses, ecological intentional communities, organic farms and sustainability sites, integrated with our award-winning permaculture design and regenerative leadership certification.

This three-month intensive course combines our Urban Permaculture and Regenerative Leadership Certificate training, followed by a Wilderness First Aid training before we head on the road cycling from Eugene, Oregon all the way across America to Washington DC, promoting and learning about sustainable living and intentional communities.

This program is about sustainable community living – through the extensive training and preparation, the group will form a self-contained community on wheels that will cycle across the nation learning and promoting sustainable living.  Because all of our programs are always designed for beginner and intermediate cyclists, we will teach participants how to fix flats, fundamentals of bicycle mechanics, wilderness first aid, many safe bicycle touring skills, and provide participants with the best possible routes. The permaculture training at the start of the course will give participants a very thorough foundation in sustainable community design. Our experienced program co-facilitators will help facilitate the entire program, holding the community container and sharing their experience and guidance along the way.

Here are some quick facts about this program:

  • Includes our Urban Permaculture Design and Regenerative Leadership Certification training
  • Includes our Oregon Sustainability in Motion Bike Tour
  • Includes a Wilderness First Aid certification training!
  • Average of 60 miles per day (~4-8 hours per day) with rest/service days roughly once per week
  • This is a supported tour – a vehicle carries all the gear.
  • Meals are included – organic and vegan ingredients and menu will be provided, group members take turns cooking
  • Experienced and knowledgeable tour support staff team will cycle with the group.
  • Camping accommodations for most of the program

Aside from the amazing places participants will visit on this course, the most inspiring and transformational aspect of this program is undoubtedly the incredible community that will form throughout the course. The depth and richness of dialogue of each of our programs naturally leads to friendships and relationships that last well past the expedition itself.  We’ve often heard comments from participants who mention  that they have never experienced community the way that they have during a Common Circle Education program.

Common Circle Education is the nation’s leadership, sustainable living and permaculture design school.  We reconnect people with nature -- remembering our collective heritage, creating a beautiful thriving future, rooted in community and sustainability.  We offer courses in Oregon, Hawaii and California; our instructors are some of the most well-known leaders in sustainability, green business, organic agriculture, sustainable design and permaculture.
