    Our Permaculture Defnition:
    Permaculture is the harmonious integration of all life kingdoms into agriculturally productive ecosystems and socially just environments producing sound economic consequences. It’s a design science that seeks to build interconnections allowing for energy efficiency conservation and creation of resources.

    A bit about 2 Week Permaculture Design Course (PDC)
    The 72-Hour Permaculture Design Certificate Course is guided by the 14 chapters that comprise the book Permaculture: A Designers Manual by Bill Mollison. The course was developed by Mollison to spread the knowledge of sensible, ecological design while maintaining the integrity of its multifaceted approach. This powerful and revolutionary course covers the following topics and more: Methods of design, water harvesting, climate specific gardening and housing, aquaculture, and community development.

    Our aim as Permaculture trainers is to creatively facilitate a learning process that empowers people in permaculture design through experiential learning and hands-on training. Each student completes the course with a site design and presentation based on
    the skills and knowledge accumulated throughout the two weeks.
