A PDC with Darren Doherty, Richard Perkins, Maria Svennbeck and Julio Cantos in Mallorca Sept 27-Oct 12

The course is targeted at anybody who wants to become a more effective and sustainable participant in today's world. It is interactive and designed to make you a more useful person capable of designing and developing sustainable systems anywhere in the world.
“Our program is under continuous improvement and is determined to put the design back into the Permaculture Design Course, drawing on our broad experience in the design & development of over 1400 projects on 5 continents in every climate. Students will have the opportunity to complete a minimum of 5 design projects throughout the course which are developed & presented in groups allowing for continuous feedback and improvement. One thing that won't change however is our Day to a Subject format, following the sequence of the curriculum: 'Permaculture: A Designer's Manual' (Bill Mollison, 1988, Tagari Publications)” – Darren Doherty

Graduates of this 93 hour course will be awarded an Open World Foundation Permaculture Design Course Certificate.

Local guest speakers Guillem Ferrer, Alberto Fraile, Toni Font, Rafa Salas, Miquel Ramis and Slow Food IB among others will participate.

The course will be translated from English to Spanish (and Spanish to English) by Ana Digón.
