    In this intensive course, David Holmgren, co-originator of the Permaculture concept (with Bill Mollison in 1970's) provides an insight into permaculture as a set of design principles for reshaping how we manage land, our lives and our livelihoods in an world of energy descent. Using a combination of free flowing lectures, visual presentations, case studies of his own work, structured group discussions, observation and design exercises, David Holmgren breathes life into the design principles which link the diversity of permaculture solutions. This 3 day format allows participants to gain experience in using the design principles in a small group site design exercise. For PDC graduates wanting to expand and redesign their permaculture toolkit for new conditions and challenges, this course provides an update on the ongoing evolution of these permaculture principles and their applications.

    DAVID HOLMGREN is best known as the co-originator with Bill Mollison of the permaculture concept following the publication of "Permaculture One" in 1978. Since then he has written several more books, developed three properties using permaculture principles, conducted workshops and courses in Australia, New Zealand, Europe, Japan and North America. Within the growing and international permaculture movement, David is respected for his commitment to presenting permaculture ideas through practical projects and teaching by personal example. He shows by example that a sustainable lifestyle is a realistic, attractive and powerful alternative to dependant consumerism. As well as constant involvement in the practical side of permaculture, David is passionate about the philosophical and conceptual foundations for sustainability, which are highlighted in his latest book, Permaculture: Principles and Pathways Beyond Sustainability. With this book already on its third print run, and his increasingly prominent profile as a public speaker, David provides leadership with his refreshing and unorthodox approach to the environmental issues of our time.
    David Holmgren lives with his partner Su Dennett and their son Oliver at “Melliodora”, a one hectare permaculture demonstration site at Hepburn Springs, Central Victoria, Australia
