Joined: Feb 16, 2011
Join us in our 3rd PDC, as always with a stellar line-up of teachers - Back by popular demand! Please register early as course fills quickly.
This hands-on PDC unites theory with practical applications. Our transformative, 80-hour curriculum prepares individuals to become pro-active ecological designers, and covers the following topics:
• Permaculture Principles and Ethics • Rapid Soil Rehabilitation • Designing with the Patterns of Nature • Water Harvesting • Food Forests • Regenerating Resilient Communities • Animal Systems • Aquaculture • Renewable Energy Solutions • Homesteading
During our last PDC, we designed a premier permaculture garden for our client, the CEO of the LA Arboretum. Join us this fall as we install the garden, and design future projects!
The course provides the crucial foundation in systems thinking that enables individuals to play an active role in holistically regenerating our landscapes, food systems, and communities. An environment of support and unity between classmates is fostered to promote collaboration and a strong network of fellow designers.
Taught by experts in our field, you will get a deep understanding of permaculture from a scientific background.
