Course summary

Our Permaculture Design Course at Keela Yoga Farm is officially certified by the globally recognized Permaculture Association (UK). This comprehensive course is conducted three times annually, covering the standard 72-hour PDC syllabus with a focus on permaculture systems, hands-on experience, and the principles of permaculture design.

Participants will have the unique opportunity to immerse themselves in off-grid living within a community setting, fostering a deep connection with nature. Alongside this, they will savor nutritious organic meals and engage in invigorating yoga classes. The course provides a firsthand look at a functioning permaculture farm featuring food forests, agroforestry, and various sustainable natural buildings constructed with straw bale, cordwood, and cob. Students will witness practical examples of permaculture systems, including the integration of sheep, pigs, and chickens, and have the chance to participate in yoga and meditation sessions.

Throughout the course, each student will choose a personal project to work on, establishing a direct link between the curriculum and their individual interests. This project can range from designing for their own land to transforming a parent's garden, balcony, or implementing a worm system—anything relevant to their future plans.

The PDC can be taken as a standalone program or in conjunction with subsequent courses on advanced design (April), food forests (Sept), or natural buildings (June), which immediately follow the PDC.

Upon successful completion of the course, participants will be awarded a certified Permaculture Design Course certificate, a testament to their newfound knowledge and skills in permaculture principles and design.
