2024 Permaculture Design Course

March 8 @ 8:30 am - 6:00 pm

Permaculture is ethics based design that applies principles to address challenges between people and the environment. As we know, challenges abound. In the next few decades we will need to reskill more of the population faster than ever before in human history. Much of what permaculture has to offer is part of that reskilling. We can design human habitats that are resilient, redundant and that provide for our needs.
Our course follows the curriculum by the Permaculture Institute of North America. Permaculture design certification requires 72 hours minimum of student participation time and concludes with students receiving an internationally recognized certificate. This course is heavy on the ethics, principles and design aspects of permaculture. We cover many techniques that are useful in design. Students learn about whole systems and how to design a real existing site, working together in teams through the course and presenting their design on the second to last weekend. The certificate does NOT mean that you are certified to teach a PDC or that you have all the tools and skills to be a professional Permaculture designer. The permaculture design course is the foundation; students still need to build the walls, roof, openings, finish, and landscape. We have tools to help with this.
If you have an interest in learning more about permaculture, about whole systems or about how to work within the limits of nature this course may be for you!
We are beginning March 8th and will finish September 22nd.
