PDC2


.


The autumn course (PDC 2) will run from 9th September (arrival day) until 23rd September (departure day)

Our course consists a lot of practical elements and more than 72 hours theory and is taught in English but can be translated in German or Latvian. 
The course is held in cooperation with the Swiss agency, down to earth ACADEMY for PERMACULTURE DESIGN.  

For more information about the coaches, see   "The Team" 


Participants have the unique opportunity to immerse in a working farm and homestead and see exactly what opportunities and challenges arise in developing and maintaining a productive and resilient home and land resource system.  This course includes the standard certificate curriculum but goes beyond the typical Designer's Certification Course. 

This course is an applied permaculture training with a major focus on practice  skills and designer-skill development.  This course, however, is geared towards those seeking an intensive, very hands on, less academic experience. We will actually be practising these techniques on the farm throughout the course. Please see the pictures of our Spring PDC on this website.

All participants receive a PDC certification on completion. This course is certified by the 
Permaculture Association of Great Britain. After this course, you have the opportunity to continue your design work by doing the Diploma in Applied Permaculture Design.
