    Fundacja Transformacja invites you to join the first Permaculture Design Certification (PDC) course offered in Poland! A PDC course covers a broad overview of topics to assist people in creating a healthy, ecologically ethical lifestyle. Many people across the world have invested in the experience of a PDC course already to gather knowledge and extend their network among others with similar goals, aspirations and projects in mind. Participants of this course get practical hands-on training in...

    -gardening and garden design
    -natural building
    -infrastructure design
    -economic planning
    -social issues

    The connections created during the event open opportunities for future collaborations among teachers and participants, both on a personal and professional level, propelling the sustainability movement forward.

    Experiential learning has the highest quality of retention among students; therefore, we are placing special emphasis on developing practical skills and create an environment of a “mock eco-village” during the course where all participants share various responsibilities for the design and application of the living infrastructure of the course itself.

    The first two days of the course, students focus on drawing a connection with their surroundings and each other, building up the very infrastructure (tipi dwellings, classrooms, outdoor kitchens, showers and toilets) on the site before the formal lecture sessions begin. This will allow participants an opportunity to begin working immediately with each other and participate in the design of their next two weeks together.

    The theoretical aspects of permaculture will finally be introduced on the third day, once participants some practical experiences to reflect upon. To visualize the theoretical elements, the course will feature slide shows, lectures, films, group work, guided tours, demonstrations, practical work and self-assessment. Each theoretical session is usually preceded by a hands-on activity, working with nature. The first week, hands-on exercises will revolve around methods of observation, site analysis, soil building and human health. During the second week, practical exercises will be design-based – applying the permaculture design tools to an actual piece of land, organization or event.

    The full Permaculture Design Course fee is 650 Euro and includes:
    local site visits
    tipi and geodesic dome huts accommodation on-site (2-4 people per room)
    three meals a day (local and healthy food, vegetarians and omnivores can easily be accommodated).
