This online Permaculture Design Certificate Course focuses on the Permaculture design system: fundamental tools and strategies that can be applied at scales from the home garden to city block to village to farm. Although rooted in horticulture and agriculture, Permaculture design is interdisciplinary, touching on a wide range of subjects including regional planning, ecology, animal husbandry, appropriate technology, architecture, and international development.
The combined Hort 285 & 286 certificate course takes students on a journey to design the site of their choice, where the curriculum and assignments all build towards the creation of an integrated site design.
The course consists of narrated slide shows by experienced Permaculture instructors, educational video tours with knowledgeable guides, and interactive assignments, working towards the completion of a Permaculture site design.
Students present their work on individual blogs, which are visible for other students to comment on, and through discussion boards the community of learning is encouraged.

"...the greatest change we need to make is from consumption to
production, even if on a small scale, in our own gardens. If only 10% of
us do this, there is enough for everyone.
Hence the futility of revolutionaries who have no gardens, who depend on
the very system they attack, and who produce words and bullets, not food
and shelter." - Bill Mollison
