    A unique new course format to support PDC graduates to take their work to a more professional level

    Integralpermanence is offering 7 day Advanced Design Intensives with extended individual course work over 1 month to complete the training. This course will cover advanced permaculture design techniques and skills, mapping strategies, digital design, client interaction and project management methods and resources, business considerations for a permaculture design business and feedback to students via ongoing in-depth design work after the course ends.
