With over 72 hours of classroom and hands-on instruction, the PDC is the international standard for permaculture certification. You’ll discover the principles for 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. The 12 or 13 days of instruction are offered in several formats: (i) as a 2 week-long intensive, or (ii) split up over 4 extra long weekends. Visit our Main PDC Listing Page for detailed info and/or see below for current offerings:
If you’ve completed a permaculture course (or done your own advanced study) and are looking for some support and hand-holding while you design the property of your dreams, consider our DIY Land Design Program, a 10-week online (live) group guided session, that guarantees your results.
We’ve partnered with the fine folks at Small Farm Academy to bring you a full suite of course offerings in the realm of passive solar greenhouse design. All of these offerings are delivered online. Please note that the prices below are in US dollars.
