Why recorded classes?

Recorded classes come from a previous interactive online PDC and will include moments of debate and questions from the students that had joined the course. The reason for this is that great part of a PDC are moments of reflection, and we have chosen to include other student's questions and debates to allow you to reflect and part-take to the process on your own.

All online classes are recorded and available for self-paced study

The project will be presented at the end of the permaculture design course and will be a great opportunity for the students to metabolise the newly-acquired knowledge and receive feedback from the teacher.

The hand over of the final designs will be organised with the teachers, who will provide feedback before delivering the certificate.
