Led by James Chapman, this full PDC is accredited by the Permaculture Association and develops an understanding of Permaculture ethics, principles, design processes and implementation techniques.
This is a taught, online course running over 6 weekends with additional projects to complete in your own time, both on your own and in groups.
The Covid-19 lockdown has meant everyone has had to adapt to how they live and work, creatively responding to change. During our most recent PDC (January - May 2020) we had to adapt our in-person, face-to-face course, moving the last 3 modules online. We weren’t sure at first how it would work out, but we were delighted with how the modifications went and by the really positive feedback from the student group.
NonStuff Industries is committed to make permaculture more accessible to everyone. Along with a flexible scale of fees, we hope that holding the course online will allow more people to join us.
We welcome people of all levels of experience and backgrounds. Online classes are relaxed, fun and interactive, with a good mix of information sessions using various media, creative project work and participatory ideas exchange. There will be guided practical projects and nature observation activities between modules.
Not sure about committing to the full PDC? Consider joining us for Module 1, which also runs as a stand-alone Introduction to Permaculture.
About the team: The course is led by James and supported by the NonStuff team - Nenya, Carole and Jenny. There will also be feature sessions with guests - practitioners, designers and specialists in their area.
