[heading] Why Take a Permaculture Design Course? [/heading]
Permaculture training may just change your life. This training offers the opportunity to develop professional skills and provides valuable education to enhance your current vocation, prepare you for your next venture and give you inspiration about solutions that you can implement in your life at home. It is one of the few permaculture design trainings that match the schedule and tuition to the busy lives of urban professionals and full-time students. It is also a great way to meet and connect deeply with like-minded individuals that share your values.
There are many other wonderful PDC trainings in the region, but if you don’t have time to take two weeks off and would prefer to learn permaculture skills in the city that you live in and work on designs that can be implemented in your place (and learn design principles and methods that can be applied anywhere), then this might be the permaculture certificate training for you.
Through a mix of classroom discussion time, small group work and hands-on activities, we will explore methods of designing and establishing regenerative communities and economies. We visit and participate at several permaculture projects here in San Francisco and the Bay Area, observing and interacting with Permaculture principles in practice.
Some people take the training just to share the experience with an enthusiastic group of like-minded community and meet new friends. Join us and help build a healthy and happy community based on a common vision of harmony with nature and each other.
We start with the standardized Permaculture curriculum and add onto it insights and strategies for applying Permaculture to the urban setting. This lengthens the course to a degree, we do not omit any of the standard materials.
