2014 Permaculture Design Courses Announced

Project: Whole Systems Design

Posted by Ben Falk almost 8 years ago

Our fourth annual PDC: July 4th To July13th And August 22nd To August 31st Course looks like it will fill for a 4th straight year, so register early if you'd like to attend.

See our website for the full details.  Utilizing the Whole Systems Research Farm, permaculture site in Vermont's Mad River Valley, a new 175 acre site we recently acquired in central Vermont, our design studio resources, and a team of leading facilitators, Whole Systems Design offers a one-of-a-kind skills-based resiliency training experience through permaculture. This course begins at our 10 year-old maturing permaculture site - a landscape layered with established agro-ecological systems. Along with this site we will be designing and developing a new 175 acre site.

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.

pri_teacher

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.
