Over three weekends (4-3-3) we will cover the core permaculture ethics, principles, and practices. In your time, you will be begin to appreciate, understand, and be able to replicate natural processes that not only heal the land, but provide rich contexts for restoring a permanent culture. We will introduce you to good design through classroom experiences, field trips, and hands-on activities.
Permaculture is an ecological design system for sustainability in all aspects of our lives. Permaculture teaches us how to build natural homes, grow our own food, restore diminished landscapes and ecosystems, catch rainwater, build communities, take care of waste and much more. Approved for 35 APLD CEUs
The Permaculture Design Course (PDC) was developed by Bill Mollison to teach principles and foundations of sustainable design. All PDC courses offered throughout the world must follow the same format to assure that the integrity of certification process is upheld.
Organization: The PDC includes the standard 72-hour international PDC curriculum, addressing all major climatic zones (temperate, subtropic, tropical & arid) and the breadth of Permaculture applications for sustainable urban, suburban, rural, and bioregional design and development.
