Urban Permaculture Design Course, Pittsburgh Pennsylvania June 16-29th 2019

PDC promotion Permaculture Design Magazine



Urban Permaculture Design Course

Dates:  June 16-29, 2019

Location:   Garfield Community Farm, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania


Description: Earn your permaculture design certification in this two week intensive hands-on course at Garfield Community Farm, Pittsburgh’s largest urban permaculture farm.  Garfield Farm is a three acre urban farm existing on three city blocks where around twenty five homes once existed.  Today this large tract of abandoned urban land, is rich in biodiversity, producing thousands of pounds of food every year from our bioshelter and gardens, and attracting native birds and wildlife. Through grassroots community activism the farm has been shaped into a hub of permaculture education for children and adults, a place where neighbors can get seasonal organic produce and people can come together.

For people interested in leading urban permaculture projects with faith communities an optional “missional permaculture” track will be available during some evenings of the PDC. In this track we will understand the potential behind equipping communities of faith with permaculture. We will also go deeply into the “how” and “why” of making the ethics of permaculture central to the practice of modern communal spiritual practice.

Costs:  Registration Cost: $1650.00 includes food and housing.
