What is Covered in this PDC Completion Course?
And what again are the benefits to earning a
Permaculture Design Course (PDC) Certificate?
In the permaculture tradition, with a PDC Certificate one may use the word “permaculture” in the promotion of their work, craft or knowledge base. One may provide permaculture design services for fee such as consulting, advising, or actual design plans, as well as offer educational events in the form of workshops or seminars.
We schedule some form of instruction or exercise each morning, afternoon and evening. As with our other trainings, this is a full and fun week.
All meals, snacks, coffee, tea and water will be provided as part of the course tuition. Meals will be prepared from mostly organic and locally raised foods and will include vegetarian and meat options.
