PERMACULTURE OFFERS POSITIVE SOLUTIONS TO A PLANET IN CRISIS

Permaculture is a design science that brings together nature, earth sciences, human intelligence and common sense to develop positive solutions to create healthy and sustainable environments and build resilient communities. Permaculture has accumulated over 35 years of experimentation and application around the world, urban and rural, in all climates and with diverse cultures.

 

PERMACULTURE DESIGN CERTIFICATE COURSE

The Permaculture Design Certificate Course is an internationally-recognized 72 hour course resulting in a Permaculture Design Certificate. The course includes the application of permaculture principles to food production, home design/ construction, energy conservation/generation, and explores alternative economic structures and legal strategies supporting permaculture solutions.

 

Certification from this course empowers you to develop a professional permaculture design, consultation and instruction business. As graduate, you will find yourself a member of an exceptional international community of permaculturists. If you desire, you can work in a much needed AID project somewhere in the world. As a graduate, you will also be eligible to attend the stimulating International Permaculture Conference and Convergences in India in 2017 and Argentina in 2019 to create a network of permaculture practitioner friends from around the world.

 

LEARN TO USE NATURE AS YOUR PATTERN FOR FOOD PRODUCTION, HOUSING, AND COMMUNITY

 

Permaculture is a design science providing a practical framework for consciously designed landscapes that mimic the patterns and relationships found in nature. These systems yield an abundance of shelter, water, energy, and food for the provision of local needs that provide diversity, stability, and resilience for local populations.
