(PDC) Permaculture Design Course
Summary information

Location:
Sunseed, a great site featuring numerous examples of eco-construction, renewable energy sources, and organic gardens, Sunseed even has its own drylands department. A fabulous opportunity for students of permaculture to see a living, breathing centre for change and experimentation. The site is situated in the countryside in an ecovillage called Los Molinos del Río Aguas, a beautiful and sunny valley in southern Spain.

Course program:
The 72 hour PDC at Sunseed follows the curriculum as laid out in Bill Mollison's Permaculture - A Designer's Manual. It covers subjects ranging from ethics and principles of permaculture, natural systems, aquaculture, sustainable design methods, patterns in nature, land restoration, water harvesting, grey water recycling, natural building, food forests and guilds, energy conservation, appropriate technology, renewable energy, urban permaculture and invisible structures.
The design course teaches how to develop sustainable human settlements, and how to extend and preserve natural systems. The content will be covered alternating between theoretical lectures and practical applications. The teaching style aims to run immersion courses that utilize the collective intelligence of the group with engaging participatory classes.
