Permaculture ethics and principles:
(developed in the 70’s by Bill Mollison & David Holmgren)
This full immersion course will teach you how to use design to better enable you to turn your environment into a sustainable and regenerative system. You will learn to utilise strategies and choose which techniques to use, to create a world of abundance for you and those around you.
What is the 72 Hour Permaculture Design Course ?
Using a variety of learning techniques and strategies this full immersion course will present Permaculture with all of its applications in mind. Class time will consist of traditional lectures, guest presentations, group discussions, games, exercises, photo shows, and movies. We will focus on land systems with as much hands on work and examples as possible. Many discussions and examples will be explored of possible applications in ‘Invisible Structures’, those social, cultural, political, and economic structures that shape much of our world today.
This course and certification will involve group work with students completing a real life design project, based on a living site near the venue.
Who is it for?
This permaculture design course is suitable for anyone interested in sustainability. People apply permaculture design to their daily lives, homes, gardens, businesses as well as helping facilitate positive change in their communities.
Permaculture provides an effective solution-based design system to address the problems of today. Based on a set of principles and natural patterning, permaculture design is applicable in all climate conditions; in both urban and rural situations. Many indigenous communities who have been relocated or disconnected from their home are studying permaculture design principles to help re-weave cultural connection and relationships.
This course is the foundation for anyone to become skilled in regenerative design in completion of the PDC students will have a foundational understanding to start designing, to start learning more, to understand more of what they need to do and learn more of, and will set them on a practical and doable path to becoming a professional permaculture designer.
This course will give students the thinking and understanding to understand their landscape, farm and any other projects they are involved in. Permaculture couples exceptionally well with all other disciplines to increase your skill and functionality of the work you do
