Summary: 

We are offering a highly affordable and beautiful experience of learning and inspiration, in our PDC course. Based in the natural and gorgeous surroundings of the Sierra Nevada mountains, it is a 16 day long residential course.
The intense theoretical lessons in the classroom are balanced out by practical workshops and exciting 'field trips' to visit two other permaculture projects in the local valleys and mountains. We feel it is important to see the subjects that we study being put into action, experiencing the ways people put permaculture in practice.
The local area also includes many opportunities for continuing your permaculture journey, such as Volunteering on farms, practising design skills, working at the local seed bank, it’s a hive of eco-minded activity!
Taught by local farmer Ras John Cresswell and with special guest teacher Cathy Whitefield, partner of famous U.K. permaculture godfather, Patrick Whitefield. The course will also include five other guest teachers.

This course will be held at the www.lascaniadas.com farm, a beautiful farm close to the SuperNatural mountainside project, And to keep the students happy there will be lots of fresh organic food coming straight out of the gardens. As we are very blessed to be able to have our own spring water and an ancient flood-irrigation system.

This course has a maximum of 25 people, but we had many requests for the last course, so please be quick in booking if you want a place!

Summary: 

Permaculture Kernow’s 11 module
certificated Permaculture design course.
This course promises to be quite an adventure, as we delve deeply into the life changing world of permaculture.
Participants will have the opportunity discover all facets of permaculture in live online sessions and also have hands-on experience in their own offline self-study practical sessions, as they design and implement in our own home gardens.

This course will guide you through the process of designing your own permaculture landscape and lifestyle.
On top of all of this, upon completing this course, you will get the internationally recognised Permaculture Design Certificate.

You can choose to do the whole 11 modular days course, or dip into the modules that you are most interested in.
N.B.: We strongly recommend, that if you do only want to attend certain individual modules, you at least attend Day 1 first module: An introduction to permaculture module before attending any other module sessions.
You will only receive the permaculture design certificate once you have attended all 11 modular sessions but you can take as long as you wish to obtain the accreditation.
Each module is a stand-alone course in its own right and can be received in any order you choose providing the introductory module 1 is completed first.
The 10th and 11th modules are only attended once all other modules are covered.
The live online sessions will be running every weekend day from 27th September or 3rd October. You will have two chances to attend each session.
Don’t worry if you can’t make it to all the days this time round, we will be running the same course again in October and you can catch up with any of the days you missed.
If you any questions or need any other information please contact us.

Summary: 

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.

Visit our website to read more about the course content, teachers and fees in the Course Information document - and contact us with any questions!

12 September 2020 to 22 November 2020

Summary: 

Following the successful conversion of our current courses to an online format, The Northern School of Permaculture is happy to announce that our next Permaculture Design Certificate course will start in July 2020.

The course content has a wide and flexible application, not only for home and garden design, but also for those wishing to apply the design techniques within their business or career.

Adapted from a traditional classroom setting, this PDC has been designed to recreate this experience as closely as possible. A team of skilled presenters and teachers have been assembled to guide you. This online learning environment is unique to the Northern School because time has been planned in for you to absorb and practice the methods and skills you will study. Group work is combined with individual one-on-one support across a variety of channels, enabling you to communicate and participate in the way that is best for you.

If you're not sure if this course is for you, the Introduction to Permaculture Design course is running this September and provides a good overview of the principles and practices of permaculture. It will give you a good idea of what to expect from the Design Certificate programme.
