This two week long, intensive course (8th -20th October) is delivered in English and Spanish by some of the leading specialists in their field, in the beautiful and inspiring location of Arboretum in Marbella. It will teach you everything you need to know about permaculture to be able to apply permaculture designs to your personal or business life. In 2016 Arboretum Marbella is running two great permaculture courses side by side, an internationally recognised and certified introductory course and an advanced course for anyone who already holds a PDC certificate but wishes to develop this further. PDC 2016 is an educational experience that is informal, practical and based on nature, personal transformation and collective action. There are options to choose a 72-hour basic option which will result in an official permaculture certificate from Arboretum, or stay for the extended 104-hour course which gives you an official and internationally recognised qualification from the British Permaculture Association. There is also an advanced course from October 9th to 15th. This advanced course is focussed on the design and management of a practical case study. It is only open to those that already hold and official PDC certificate (minimum of 72 hours). PDC 2016 Advanced (56 hours) includes an official certificate from the British Permaculture Association.
