The New School Permaculture PDC is centred on the needs of the student so that you can get what you need and want.
This course is presented by creative non formal education methods that are based on creating a bridge between the right and left side of the brain, so that the analytical and creative abilities of the students get fully stimulated and get the most out of the experience...for many people is the most empowering and inspiring transformative process of their lives...and they carry this with them every were they go....and thats our goal.
The course follows a set syllabus and leads to the internationally recognized Permaculture Design Certificate.
