The Permaculture Design Course (PDC) is an internationally recognized certificate course covering every major topic in Permaculture: a Designers Manual. I will learn a broad range of topics applicable to life anywhere on this planet, and create designs for real world projects such as food forests, permaculture-style gardens, natural building, water catchment, and irrigation systems. Because the course is at a place already implementing Permaculture practices, l will see the incredible effects of permaculture in action.

Permaculture itself is built on a set of Principles derived from the ecological patterns, scientific knowledge, and indigenous wisdom of this planet, and is guided by a set of ethics that guide us toward care for people, care for the earth and conscious consumption.

*Major topics of the Permaculture Design Course include the following:

  • Philosophies and Ethics underlying permaculture
  • Basic permaculture principles
  • Patterns in Nature and how to use that in permaculture design
  • Methods of design.
  • Applying permaculture design methodology and strategies to meet your design goals.
  • Climactic factors and strategies for all major climates.
  • Trees, forests and forest gardening. Mimicking forest systems to create an abundance of food, fiber, and fodder.

  • Community living and other ways of living that work well for both people and the planet.

Fordi kurset er på et sted som allerede implementerer Permaculture praksis, Vil jeg se den utrolige effekten av permakultur i aksjon.

Permakultur selv er bygget på et sett av prinsipper avledet fra de økologiske mønstre, vitenskapelig kunnskap og urfolks visdom av denne planeten, og styres av et sett med etikk som styrer oss mot omsorg for mennesker, omsorg for jorden og bevisst forbruk.
