May 9 – 12 – Permaculture Design Exercise Weekend with Mihail Kossev from Bulgaria, course will be in english.

«Students will receive an introduction to Permaculture design before they actively practice it in our future forest garden. This way, we learn by doing. This course is very interactive and participatory. Everyone will get a chance to practice their design skills, while learning about the permaculture approach to gardening, construction and general infrastructure planning. It is useful for people who not only need to hear about permaculture, but also do it in order to better understand it»

 This course walks you through the steps of the design process for a piece of land. These methods will be showcased and practiced, using the property Alvastien as an example. As a result of this course, the participants will have conducted a thorough site analysis as well as produce various design options for a food forest, an example of something that can be expected from a professional permaculture consultation.

Teachers bio : 

Mihail Kossev (www.mihailkossev.weebly.com)

Mihail is a permaculture designer, educator and filmmaker. He received his Bachelor’s Degree from New York University, in Film Production in 2007, then a Master’s in Education from CUNY in 2009, and has since made a career of integrating artistic expression, community learning and «re-skilling» throughout Europe and North America. He received his Permaculture Design Certificate from Bill Mollison and Geoff Lawton in 2010, and has gathered professional experience with various ecological projects, some young, others established. This has enriched his skills in helping groups work together towards a common ecological design. He discovered the comfort and luxury of tipi living two years ago, when he returned to Bulgaria from the US. Since then, he has put together various tipi constructions for courses, festivals and private clients and is excited to be spreading this skill to other like-minded people at home and abroad.

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.

The individual with this badge is indicating they are, have, or would like to do paid permaculture design consultancy work. As such, the individual may or may not have permaculture consultancy experience. Watch their updates for evaluation.


Community Project

Community projects are projects that help develop sustainable community interaction and increase localised resiliency.
