We have a wide breadth of professional design experience to share; this course is about practical & do- able solutions based on our EXPERIENCE! WHY TAKE YOUR PDC AT RIDGEDALE PERMACULTURE? Our courses are accredited by the Permaculture Research Institute (PRI), Australia (PRI Registered Teacher No. 24) and the Permaculture Association UK. This ensures you are you being trained by a personally vetted field trained professional, actively engaged in design and with recognized teaching skill. We live and work in our designsand are continually deepening our knowledge and understanding to empower what we have to share. We are engaged in regenerative design daily; professionally, on the farm and at home and have been for many years. We are 100% committed to radical system redesign by managing financial, social and ecological elements holistically. DESIGN is the foundation of all our trainings Our experience shows that students engaging in regular design exercises synthesize course content much more effectively, and produce more competent and actionable designs. We teach principle-based design, so you will understand how to apply design to any site regardless of the climate or circumstance. Our no- nonsense approach to design is key to our trainings, and our practical experience in every major climate zone integrating the best of several disciplines of regenerative design means we can impart very broad and practical knowledge and experience. We offer a clear, pragmatic and scientific approach to design. Permaculture is a design science; metaphysics is not included in our curriculums, and for good reason. Students of all backgrounds, cultures and religions are fully welcome and respected. We are integrationalists and believe in integrating anything effective and workable from any discipline to widen our scope, we have been using Keyline design and Holistic Management in our work for years. Offering over 90hrs of training over 14 full days means we fit in a lot more than many similar programs. See our schedule and compare programs. We can support you after the training with both personal and professional experience in further education we can offer advice, design support and recommend further learning opportunities for those wishing to take design further. We have acted as mentors in longer term education programs, such as the 2 yr Permaculture Diploma, as well as run a wide variety of workshops and trainings to students from over 45 countries through all climate zones. https://www.ridgedalepermaculture.com/pdc-may-9-23rd-2015.html [video=youtube;7oWKSnNWdmw]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7oWKSnNWdmw&list=UU3111rvadtBPUY9JJBqdmzg[/video] We also offer 8 Week Farm Scale Permaculture Internships for those wanting to extend & accelerate their learning, see website for details..
