Introduction to Permaculture

Project: Gaiaveda Vendoire

Posted by Matt Morton over 11 years ago

A weekend Introduction to Permaculture in the Dordogne Date: 4th - 5th August 2012 Venue: Le Cluzeau, Vendoire Dordogne http://permacultureglobal.org/projects/531-gaiaveda-vendoire

This course will be run in French and English; aiming to introduce Permaculture in this area to as wide an audience as possible. The course will be an interactive, and fun exploration into the ethics and principles of permaculture including some basic design exercises, and examples of Permaculture in action. It is a perfect opportunity for those who are looking for more sustainable methods of living to gain some initial knowledge of this design system and to meet and network with other similarly minded people in your region. 
This course is open to all (minimum age 16), and is non-residential. If you require accommodation or travel advice please contact us for further details. The cost of the course is 125 euros, lunch and refreshments are included.

Legend of Badges

Note: The various badges displayed in people profiles are largely honesty-based self-proclamations by the individuals themselves. There are reporting functions users can use if they know of blatant misrepresentation (for both people and projects). Legitimacy, competency and reputation for all people and projects can be evidenced and/or developed through their providing regular updates on permaculture work they’re involved in, before/after photographs, etc. A spirit of objective nurturing of both people and projects through knowledge/encouragement/inspiration/resource sharing is the aim of the Worldwide Permaculture Network.



A member is a permaculturist who has never taken a PDC course. These cannot become PDC teachers. Members may be novice or highly experienced permaculturists or anywhere in between. Watch their updates for evaluation.

Male memberFemale member

Permaculture Matchmaker

One of these badges will show if you select your gender and the "I'm single, looking for a permaculture partner" option in your profile.



People who claim to have taken a Permaculture Design Certificate (PDC) course somewhere in the world.


PDC Verified

People who have entered an email address for the teacher of their PDC course, and have had their PDC status verified by that teacher. Watch their updates for evaluation.



People who’ve taken a Permaculture Research Institute PDC somewhere in the world.


PDC Teacher

People who claim to teach some version of PDC somewhere in the world.


PRI Teacher

With the exception of the ‘Member’ who has never taken a PDC, all of the above can apply to become a PRI PDC Teacher. PRI PDC Teachers are those who the PRI recognise, through a vetting board, as determined and competent to teach the full 72-hour course as developed by Permaculture founder Bill Mollison – covering all the topics of The Designers’ Manual as well as possible (i.e. not cherry picking only aspects the teacher feels most interested or competent in). Such teachers also commit to focussing on the design science, and not including subjective spiritual/metaphysical elements. The reason these items are not included in the PDC curriculum is because they are “belief” based. Permaculture Design education concerns itself with teaching good design based on strategies and techniques which are scientifically provable.

PRI PDC Teachers may be given teaching and/or consultancy offerings as they become available as the network grows.
