Permaculture Design Course

(PDC) Permaculture Design Course
Summary information

The Keela Yoga Farm Permaculture Design course combines the standard PDC curriculum with hands-on experience of life at a working permaculture farm. You can take it alone, or in combination with the courses on food forests and natural buildings in the weeks immediately following for a month-long intensive training in practical sustainability.

As well as learning about permaculture philosophy, its ecological foundations, design methodologies, and real-world applications, you’ll get your hands dirty in the vegetable gardens, composting systems, food forests, silvopastures, appropriate technology systems, and managed woodlands on an established 18-hectare site.

This Permaculture Design course will suit you if you are thinking of applying permaculture in your own life, by setting up or joining your own land-based project. It also works well for people seeking ideas, skills and inspiration to embark on a more fulfilling path in life and make positive contributions to the state of the world. Certified by the Permaculture Association (Britain), it offers a foundation to further your permaculture journey via the Diploma in Applied Permaculture Design or other advanced training.
