The course will be conducted in the internationally accepted manner, but will go far beyond the scope of many PDC’s. The 72 hours of course work required to receive a Permaculture Design Certificate, will be covered over six weekend sessions, mixing hands-on activities, group work and walk-and-talks with plenty of in classroom studies, covering all major topics of Bill Mollison’s Permaculture: A Designers Manual. The extended nature of the weekend format will give participants time during the weeks to digest the enormous volume of material. All students are required to be present for all sessions if they wish to receive the certificate.Our aim is to create a supportive learning community for the duration of the workshop, where trust, compassion, support and connection is built among participants.
