Permaculture Design Certificate
With approximately 72 hours of classroom and hands-on instruction, the PDC is the international standard for permaculture certification. Offered either as a 2 week-long intensive, or split up over 3 extra long weekends, you'll discover the secrets to designing and implementing regenerative human habitat, for a fraction of the cost of a conventional environmental degree. We've added an online introduction course, interactive student forum, and countless other unique features to create an information-dense and unparalleled learning experience.
