Finger Lakes Permaculture Institute offers its 10th PDC Course.

Posted by Michael Burns over 12 years ago

Earn your Permaculture Design Certificate in New York's Beautiful Finger Lakes Region. Learn from experienced instructors, with a hands-on course in an off-grid learning community.

July 27th through August 12, 2012

Learn the permaculture design process during 15 engaging days in an off-grid learning community. Since 2005, we have been training people of all backgrounds, ages, experience and skill levels to design using natural patterns based on ecological principles. Students bring a mix of skills and experience that our teachers draw out to enrich the course for all participants. Our graduates leave ready to design and create with a new network of colleagues and friends to inspire and assist.

Steve Gabriel, Karryn Olson Ramanujan, Rafter Sass Ferguson, and Michael Burns each offer years of practical knowledge gained through work on nationally renowned projects, consulting with clients, and in their own communities. Collectively they have taught thousands of hours of permaculture design courses.

Our teachers design, coordinate and innovate their teaching every year to deliver the traditional permaculture curriculum and include new ideas and strategies developed by practitioners in northeastern North America. Design skills are taught through hands-on and experiential activities developed over seven years of the Institute’s courses.

$1200 tuition includes prepared meals and camping.

Register and pay in full by May 1 and save $200.

Work trade options for reducing tuition available. See our website for details.

Class size is limited.
