Diploma in Applied Permaculture Design
What is the Diploma in Applied Permaculture Design?
The Diploma in Applied Permaculture Design is internationally recognised as the next step for people who have done a Permaculture Design Course. The Diploma formally recognises and accredits a persons permaculture practice. The Diploma is not a taught course like the Permaculture Design Course, it is a scheme for supporting an extended period of self-directed learning. It is based around the projects and activities that you are involved in and that you set yourself. You plan and carry out your own course of self-managed study, taking on projects of your own choosing and carrying out the permaculture design process with these projects. You document your work and put it together in a portfolio. This work is assessed by diploma holders and accredited by the Permaculture Association.
