The Leeds PDC has been running since 2006. The teachers are all accomplished permaculture designers, educators and practitioners with varied interests in and around the city. This course is a hybrid between meeting in person for teaching and project visits and online evening sessions which helps students go through the design process and develop their own permaculture project. Our hybrid in-person and online format has been tested over the last two years and is a really good blend of teaching approaches that has proven to be very effective.
