Full Permaculture Design Course

Full Permaculture Design Course (PDC)
Summary information

This course is for anyone who is interested in permaculture - a sustainable lifestyle, organic gardening, farming and forestry, energy-efficient buildings and technologies - and who believes that we need to find ways to care for ourselves, for each other and for the Earth. It will help you identify steps for positive change for yourself, your family and your community.

The Permaculture Design Course will introduce you to the ethics and principles that underpin permaculture design - a design process that creates a framework within which we can use a variety of techniques and tools to [re]build essential resources – ranging from soils to communities.

The course offers a fully-participatory approach to learning, with discussions, group work, slide and film presentations, practical session and site visits, alongside regular teaching sessions. There will also be the opportunity for participants to present their own projects or those that are still at the planning stage.
The course will be in English.
