Internships with the PDC

Project: Purple Pear Farm

Posted by Mark Brown 4 months ago

We have been running an Internship with the PDC for a while now and they are becoming popular with Australian and overseas students.

The idea is that there is an option to engage in practical experiences on a working permaculture property while attending the Permaculture Design Course, giving a rounded view and experience.

It is a perrequesite that participants on the Internship must have completed a PDC either elsewhere or here. This is so important that they are carry the ethics and principles through the day to ensure no one gets left behind.

We offer three different aproaches to the PDC with the three internships offered each year. One day a week sees the course run over the ten weeks of the internship or weekends sees an intense time with 7 days a week covered over six weeks with a weekend off, then there is the intensive with the two week course at the start of the internship.

There is more information on the internship on our website http://www.purplepearfarm.com.au/internships

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.
