PERMACULTURE DESIGN CERTIFICATION
9th Annual Beginning with Home: 6-Month Weekend PDC
Permaculture is a design system that integrates humans into the landscape in a way that is healing for both. This introductory course expands upon the standard 72-hour, internationally-recognized Permaculture Design Certification, and provides participants with hands-on experience working with common-sense solutions, while nourishing earth-based traditions and empowering our human potential. This 6-month practicum highlights innovative design systems and practical solutions that create bioregional sovereignty and, in the words of Buckminster Fuller, “Have the potential to radically advance human well being and the health of our planet's ecosystems.” Students will be supported to bring their learning from the classroom to their own projects and at the site of this year's Community Partner, TBA.
