What we will learn:
How we will learn:
The learning will be inherently experiential and involve engaging students' head, heart and of course, hands - the primary mediums through which we learn.
Where will we learn:
The course is centred around UBC Farm and UBC Main campus, but utilizes Vancouver City and OUR Ecovillage on Vancouver Island as living examples of Permaculture at work.
What students will leave with:
Students will leave with the essential skills for reading the landscape, developing a conceptual and detailed design plan, and implementing that design plan through soft (plants) and hard (structures) landscaping.
The work spans small (garden) through large (city/regional) scale planning and integrates human systems - water, food, energy, housing and community into a development plan that seeks to support non-human wilderness systems as well.
In short, we explore the design and management of sustainable food, housing, energy and community systems.
Who should take the course?
Everyone! Permaculture is becoming a standard stepping stone to support the transformative shift humanity needs to become sustainable and even regenerative.
In our course we've hosted students and professionals in farming, business, teaching, architecture, fine arts, culinary arts, planning, construction as well as retirees who are seeking a new way of life or a new direction in their career. Indeed, some businesses such as LUSH now treat the Permaculture Design Certificate Course as a prerequisite for many of their employees.
If you are looking for change? We want you!
