Advanced Permaculture Design Course
Instructors: Dave Boehnlein, co-author of Practical Permaculture & David Shaw, Santa Cruz Permaculture
Dates: August 29 to September 5, 2020
Where: Santa Cruz, CA
Course Description:
Do you want to gain more permaculture design experience? This 8-day Advanced Design Course is an excellent follow-up to a Permaculture Design Course. Join Dave Boehnlein of Terra Phoenix Design and the Bullock’s Permaculture Homestead and David Shaw of Santa Cruz Permaculture while we practice together and share what we’ve learned over the years.

If you’ve taken a Permaculture Design Course, you know that this skill set has the potential to change the world. However, for most of us one 72-hour class isn’t enough to really deeply embed this knowledge into all our practices. So, who is this Advanced PDC for? We’re looking for people who took a PDC and got fired up. We’re also hoping you went out into the world and tried to use what you learned. However it went, so long as you did something with the knowledge you got a yield of feedback. Whether your first permaculture design went well or had some hiccups, this class is a perfect next step as we will go beyond what usually gets covered in the standard 72-hour curriculum. It’s also a great course for people who have, or want to have, a career in permaculture. This is an opportunity to be with other dedicated permaculturists and experienced instructors to help guide you to the next steps you need to sharpen your design skills to a fine point.

This advanced course will jump in assuming you are familiar with the basic permaculture concepts and ideas.  We will not be rehashing the permaculture design course basics, therefore, you may want to brush up on the foundational concepts and vocabulary etc. before you come.

Join the team of Terra Phoenix Design and the Bullock's Permaculture Homestead for this excellent follow-up to your Permaculture Design Course.

There will also be open studio time for you to get feedback on your own designs. Finally, real-world design project walkthroughs from the Terra Phoenix portfolio will allow you to see what finished designs look like and how to assemble a quality package of deliverables for your client.
