In this course, you will learn to see, consider, analyze and design productive landscapes from balconies to large farms and towns. Permaculture uses low technology and high science and the PDC remains solidly based in those tangibles.
This 72-hour course will be taught by professional, certified permaculture educators and permaculture designers, giving students the international qualification presently known as Permaculture Consultant’s Design Course certificate.
A collaborative, certified teaching team will consist of Rhonda Baird, Penny Krebiehl, Levi Meeuwenberg and other local, regional permaculture designers and practitioners.
Course Sections Include:
- Introductions and a Vision of Permaculture in Succession
- Beginning Permaculture
