Summary: 

We are excited to announce a PDC with room for 24 participants in the beautiful archipelago of Orkney led by Graham Bell. A unique location, with a fascnating and often underappreciated place in Britain's cultural and historical heritage, Orkney provides the backdrop for this opportunity supported by Pebble Trust, via Permaculture Scotland's ScotLAND Project, and hosted by Stromness Community Garden. This will hopefully be the first such course of many to target social, economic and ecological regeneration in the Highlands and Islands of Scotland.

The price of this course is on a sliding scale. The full rate, including 12 days of tuition, lunches, trips out and evening events is:

  • £300, for unwaged or irregular earners
  • £450, for regular earners on a low household income
  • £700, for those who are financially secure
  • £950, for those who are financially comfortable

Payment by instalments will be possible, as long as the full amount is paid within a month of the course ending. The most expensive ticket is essentially a 'gift ticket', as it enables more people who can afford the cheapest ticket to attend (which is essentially a bursary rate as this undercuts our 'break even point'). If you are very keen to attend the course, but find that the cost is prohibitive, please get in touch to find some alternative arrangement.

For those who need it, we have arranged for accommodation options near to the venue. August is the peak of peak season for Orkney, so we are very lucky to have this accommodation reserved for you! Please see articles linked for further information about the options available, and enquire with Rachael when you book to reserve your place.

Summary: 

The Permaculture Design Course (PDC) is a 72-hour internationally recognised training engaging participants' head, heart and hands to discover the principles and techniques of Permaculture Design.

At Tribewanted Monestevole in Umbria, Italy, we bring learning about Permaculture into its right context. You could say it is our up-market PDC. By joining the course you will not only become an accredited Permaculture Designer, but you'll be able to put the theories into practice on the 40 acres of available permaculture gardens, orchards, with the animals and in the local kitchen, all while enjoying the Italian hospitality and delicious organic and locally sourced foods.

The 2020 course will be our third Permaculture Design Course held at Monestevole and we are looking forward to building on the design insights and land restoration techniques applied in previous years.

Umbria is known as the green heart of Italy, with lush, sustainably managed landscapes and woodlands.

Summary: 

Due to popular demand, Azula and Surplus Permaculture Design are excited to invite you to join us for an extended- 21 day- Permaculture Design Course (PDC) on a stunning 15 hectare Permaculture project on the South West cost of Portugal.

An average PDC runs for 10-14 days, packing in all the 72 hours of theory into the shortest timescale possible. We want to do things differently and after feedback from PDC graduates they want it differently too – so we have created a 21 day PDC. This will be a unique learning experience giving you all the knowledge and skills of a PDC but with the added benefit of being able to deepen that knowledge – to learn by doing – to put theory into practice – get your hands in the earth and connect with the land from day one!

You are also welcome to join us on our music jams, open air movie nights, Yoga/Akro, Capoeira and pizza nights that we organize.

We are looking forward to have you :)

We return to Sunseed for our 9th course! We love Sunseed!

Sunseed, a non-formal education project for the transition towards sustainability, is based in an ancient little Andalusian village with a long historical background. The electricity is provided by solar panels, a nearby water source provides water for daily use and natural water treatments are used for sewage. The village is home for about 50 people and is a hub for creative projects like Sunseed, Pita-Escuela, Casa de la Realidad and Cultura de la Tierra.

Sunseed is located in a valley of the endangered Rio Aguas in the natural reserve of Karst en Yesos de Sorbas, famous for its gypsum crystal caves. Various hiking trails are located in the valley, including a route to the source of the river passing through the natural pools.

Sunseed was first conceived in 1982 during a talk at a green festival by Harry Hart, co-founder of the charity Green Deserts. In August 1986, having rented a house in arid Southeast Spain, a small joint project began looking at practical ways of combating desertification. In March 1987 Green Deserts withdrew and Sunseed Desert Technology and The Sunseed Trust were inaugurated to direct the project.

Summary: 

This is the 10th Permaculture Design Course in Glasgow with Lusi Alderslowe! Permaculture is a holistic design system for sustainable living, creating systems for minimum effort and maximum effect. This course is one weekend per month. The first module can also be taken as a stand alone introduction, which allows you to come along and meet everyone before you commit to the rest of the course. From February to June we will be exploring all the remaining core topics of the Permaculture Design Course, which enables participants to recieve the Permaculture Association's Internationally recognised Certificate.
Using a diverse range of different teaching styles we will find out more about
* the Permaculture Design Process: SADIMET, and the theory and practice of different design tools from mapping to turning waste into resources. This includes different opportunities to use the design tools and create an entire design in a small group.
* Permaculture ethics and principles and their application
* Themes of soil, water, plants& trees, growing your own food, the built environment, resource use, social systems and contexts.
* Different sites including the Concrete Garden, Kintyre Bioregion, Tarbert Health Centre and others (tbc).
* Next steps on your permaculture pathway.

We will be based at teh concrete garden and visit various other sites on different weekends, with the May module being in Argyll on the Mull of Kintyre @ Ed Tyler's inspirational permaculture house and garden and the rest of the Kintyre Bioregion Permaculture ScotLAND Centre

Indigenous Life Experience - 22 Feb to 22 Mar

The New School Permaculture PDC is centred on the needs of the student.So you get what you need.
This course is presented by creative non formal education methods, that are based on creating a bridge between the right and left side of the brain, so that the analytical and creative abilities of the students get fully stimulated and get the most out of the experience...for many people is the most empowering and inspiring transformative process of their lives...and they carry this with them everywere they go....and thats our goal.

The course follows a set syllabus and leads to the internationally recognised Permaculture Design Certificate.

Taught by Helder Valente of the New School Permaculture. Helder studied and worked with Bill Mollison, Sepp Holzer, Doug Bullock, Rosemary Morrow, Darren dougherty, Ernst Gotsh and others, and is now teaching all over the world, he started in 2009 teaching permaculture to students at the agriculture university and since then learning and teaching on many different climates. While living in the city he dedicated 3 years on developing a urban permaculture project in the center of Lisbon and co created the Portuguese Permaculture Institute. That's how it all started. Helder never stopped and this last months spent his time working with Quechua farmers in the Andes and designing projects in the Amazon jungle.

This course will be in the Amazon rainforest of Brazil in colaboration with the Kawanawa tribe and you will be able to live the life of the people of the forest and help improve their living conditions with permaculture design.
