Permaculture Design Course 2015

Posted by Taj Scicluna over 9 years ago

Dandenong Ranges, Victoria February 4th - July 4th 2015 $700 or $550 Concession Wednesday nights 6:00PM - 9:30PM

Our Permaculture Design Course syllabus is currently undergoing radical transformation to bring you a more interactive, hands on, practical and immersive experience!

This is a 72hr + Course which gives you an internationally recognized qualification and you will receive a Certificate upon completion.
Upon completion each participant will understand Permaculture Design Principles and present their own Permaculture Design, with the facilitators offering ongoing Mentor Support and Resources not only throughout the duration of the course, but post commencement.


The course will run one weeknight (usually Wednesdays) a week for 5 and a half months, from 6:00pm - 9:30pm, to ensure people can go about their daily lives and still have a fruitful learning experience. There are 3 Saturday classes for hands on activities, field trips and Presentation day.


As Facilitators, we are passionate about spreading Permaculture to every individual, and provide care for our students well-being and learning.

Our Courses are unique as classes provide a break from the regular 'chalk and talk' academic environment, focusing on each persons learning style to give a variety of teaching methods and processes that compliment the diversity of a group.


You will learn how to make more informed and conscious choices, you will develop an understanding of the Natural world, you will design various garden, housing and social systems for wholistic outcomes, you will get your hands dirty and rediscover the radical responsibility we have to the Earth that sustains us.



Topics include:

- Permaculture Ethics and Principles
- Methods of Design
- Plant and Animal Systems

- Ecology and Pattern Understanding

- Trees and Transactions
- Food Forests
- Soil Structure, Biology and Chemistry

- Climate

- Water and Hydrology

- Topography and Earthworks

- Bioregions and Ecological Vegetation Classes

- Alternative Economic, Transportation and Social Structures


...To name a few.


Each participant will receive a Permaculture Design Course Booklet by Gaiacraft, as well as additional handouts compiled from various sources and written both by Tamara Griffiths and The Perma Pixie.
