Online Permaculture Design Course - Live & Interactive Online Learning

(PDC) Permaculture Design Course
Summary information

40+ hours of live online sessions - 25 hours of additional coursework - Additional learning resources available
With guest teachers & virtual project visits

The Permaculture Design Course is a 72-hour often life-changing experience, accredited by the UK Permaculture Association.

The 7 modules of our online Permaculture Design Course bring us together as a learning community to explore practical and creative solutions for creating resilient ecosystems and designing abundant lifestyles and livelihoods. We will discover how we can work with, rather than against nature to fulfil our human needs whilst caring for the earth and the people.

The course has a strong emphasis on ecological and social design thinking and how this can be applied in different parts of our life and society. It offers us the opportunity to face the predicaments of climate breakdown and the biodiversity crisis and form our own healthy response to these challenges.

Each module consists of 5 to 10 live face-to-face teaching hours and some compulsory as well as voluntary assignments. You will work on your own as well as in small groups exploring different subjects and designing a project of your choice that you will present to the group in the final module. On each of the 7 modules we will have a guest speaker, some of whom live in different parts of the world and are able to share their practice and perspective.
