YOUR PERMACULTURE JOURNEY STARTS HERE…
What’s your learning style?
Whether you’re looking for hands-on participation in real-time courses, workshops and events, or you’re looking for a user-friendly distance-learning experience online, we can provide world-class permaculture education in the format you need.
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.
