Our Permaculture design course provides a positive and empowering vision for social and ecological transformation. Come be inspired by the possibilities of today and not by the fear of tomorrow!

Primary Permaculture Design Applications:

  • Bioregional design science that provides a new model for economic development.
  • Addressing the major issues of our day from a whole systems perspective.
  • Worldwide movement that is helping to regenerate local ecologies and economies.
  • Solution oriented ecological approach to retrofitting our societies.

This course is perfect for motivated individuals who wish to use the tools of Permaculture in urban and rural environments as well as for modeling sustainable and regenerative businesses.

Lecture topics: Urban redesign and retrofit, passive solar and natural building, inner-city gardening techniques, indoor and apartment gardening, indoor mushroom cultivation, fermented foods, whole foods, Living Machines and natural waste water treatment, niche market and cooperatively owned business ideas, rain gardens, bioremediation, green roofs, rooftop gardens, how to clean polluted air with plants, biogas generators, Bioregionalism and regional self reliance, the economics of globalization, evolution of life on earth, history of agriculture, Biodynamics, natural history of Eastern woodlands, wood lot management, watershed health, the integration of animals into cultivated ecosystems, and so much more!

To receive a certificate students must attend all 11 classes and present a final Permaculture site design. Students will be given the option to present their final design individually which is a different approach than most PDCs. In our experience, and from what our growing number of students say, this contributes to a more practical, professional and intellectually stimulating learning experience. As a result a number of our student's final presentations have gone from paper (or electronic presentations) to actualized, real-world designs.
