This Permaculture Design Certificate Course (PDC), based on Bill Mollisons Permaculture Designers’ Manual, gives you the appropriate tools to create a sustainable, resource and cost-effective environment while reducing the ecological footprint and the human impact on mother nature. This course has been refined since it’s inception in the late 1980’s. It will take 80 hours of theory to complete, plus extensive hands-on design experience.

A land management system that consciously and synergistically integrates agriculture and social design principles into the native ecosystem. It offers a practical and creative approach to the problems of diminishing resources and threatened life support systems the world now faces. The core principles of each of these systems is to, Take responsibility, Care for the earth, Care for people & Fair share.
The essence of permaculture – the design of an ecologically sound way of living – in our households, gardens, communities and businesses. It is created by cooperating with nature and caring for the earth and its people. Intelligent Design is Key.
