9 month Permaculture Design Certificate Course STARTS!
Permaculture design focuses on solutions that are based in nature, working with nature, and beneficial for nature. But it isn’t JUST gardening – it’s a way of seeing the world and going beyond self sufficiency to community resiliency.
It doesn’t matter where you live – an apartment, house, farm, or cottage, all aspects of life can be improved with permaculture – from garden design to business structures. We will be exploring them all.
This 9 month, 100+ hour course takes place over several weekends during the year. You will experience the natural cycle for all seasons. The extended length of the course, and on-line component, allows you to take what you have learned, apply it to your life, and get feedback from others in your permaculture community. It covers all of the standard PDC material set out by Bill Mollison, and extends it to cover areas that are relevant to our climate and living situations.
