Course summary

We are excited to announce the eighth  PDC that will be hosted in Tinos Eco-lodge, welcoming for the sixth time Peter Cow from England, alongside Elena Symeonidou from Paros, Greece and assistant teacher Nicolas Bedau from the Eco-lodge. 
Peter, Elena and Nico will combine their skills from both Northern and Southern ecosystems and climatic conditions and will put emphasis on Social permaculture as well as ecobuilding, growing systems and water management, with lots of hands on and practicals during the course. 

We will go deep into the patterns of Permaculture design, and how they can be applied to so many situations and applications all around the world, with the key focus on helping you to think like a 'ecosystem' designer wherever you are, whatever you are doing. Nikos helped design and build the Tinos Ecolodge will also share his hands-on experience of this, designing the buildings, energy, water, plant and waste systems. We will have the rare opportunity to discuss and elaborate on Nikos’ and Marilia’s choices on different aspects of their project, and reflect on the challenges, opportunities and limitations. This PDC is fully certified by the Permaculture Association (Britain). 

You can choose to camp, or stay in one of the eco guesthouses on site.
The course will be taught in English, and you can read more about the course content here -
