What are the price options or packages for your 2018 PDC courses? What’s included in each?

When you register for a PDC, you can choose from one of three packages: Foundational, Premium or Professional Development. Regardless of the package, everyone is registered for the same PDC class and receives the Foundational features included with the course, but with the Premium and Professional Development options you get added benefits to help launch your personal permaculture projects or career. The prices and a list of what’s included can be found under the Tuition tab of the particular course page, and is also included below.

What’s Included?

Whether you’re looking to practice permaculture in your own backyard, or whether you’re envisioning a regional consultancy, this program is set up to suit your vision. With three levels of engagement, we can prepare you for the simplest makeover of your backyard or community commons, all the way up to your most ambitious business plan. See the tables below for what is included in each of our packages.
