PDC for International Development Professionals and Volunteers

Posted by Loren Taylor Luyendyk over 7 years ago

June 18th-July 1st 2012, near Ojai, California. We have tailored this program to equip people who work in international development situations with the skills needed to design and implement sustainable human settlement systems. This course is designed

June 18th - July 1st, 2012

"My learning journey at Quail Springs helped to nurture my presence of mind to be a better and more active listener – a vital trait for the international development professional. The coursework was incredibly pertinent to my work in Uganda and without a doubt made me more aware, more compassionate, and more focused in my role as a project manager and human being." - a Former Student

We have tailored this program to equip people who work in international development situations with the skills needed to design and implement sustainable human settlement systems. This course is designed for people who work with Non Government Organizations, Government Agencies, or who are Community Organizers working in International Development.

Permaculture is fast becoming one of the most effective design methodologies for attaining sustainability worldwide. Permaculture is in 160 countries with an estimated 850,000 grassroots projects on-the-ground, feeding more people than all the world food aid organizations combined.

How would permaculture benefit your international development organization:
• Give your agency the tools to integrate sustainable systems design into existing projects
• Learn to create stable and resilient food, shelter, water and waste cycling systems for health and abundance in any of your projects
• Create an ethics and principle based training program within your organization that honors local customs, traditional knowledge and ecological conditions
• Allows your agency to have staff who have hands-on experience in creating holistic designs for various circumstances and environments, composting, water harvesting, bio-sand filters, and the building of rocket stoves.

People working in international development will benefit from the years of experience of our teaching team in applying permaculture around the globe. We have tailored the entire permaculture certification curriculum to better equip the people who work international situations where people live in non-westernized conditions.

Course topics delivered in a combination of classroom and practicum sessions include: permaculture certification curriculum, integrated design basics, sustainable human settlement design priorities for varied climates, water harvesting, waste cycling, local food resilience, sustainable agriculture systems, aquaculture, livestock integration, appropriate technology, energy efficiency, ecological building, hydrological system restoration, water filtration, integrated pest management, keyline, composting, compost toilets, earthworks, greywater design, cooking technologies, peacemaking, conflict resolution, and community organizing.

Hands-on projects include:
• rocket stove for reducing cooking fuels by 75%
• biosand water filter
• a simple compost toilet
• bioswale mapping and construction
• building a compost system

The Teaching Team

Our instruction team is comprised of a diverse mix of Quail Springs residents and special guest instructors from around the world led by Warren Brush, international permaculture educator, designer, and co-founder of Quail Springs and True Nature Design, and Loren Luyendyk, the founder of Surfers Without Borders and Global Permaculture Design Group.
