|6-Day Hands-on Training – May 22-28, 2011|
Next Week –At Midwest Permaculture, Stelle, IL
Last fall, at the request of our host following one of our full PDC (Permaculture Design Certificate) Courses, I stayed on for an additional week to lead another group of beginning students for a hands-on permaculture training that included some classroom time on the foundations of permaculture. I’ll have to admit, I thought it would end up being a fine week but nothing like the excitement of our full PDC trainings. I was wrong.
If seeing is believing, then doing is knowing. We had a wonderful week tackling all sorts of projects during the day and exploring permaculture design ideas and principles in the evenings. The students loved it. I loved it. Everyone learned a tremendous amount and came away with many useful and practical skills to begin their own permaculture projects.
From this experience we have created our new 6-day Hands-on Training that we intend to be offering for years to come. And student who take this training, earn partial credit toward a PDC certificate.
