P3's part-time Permaculture Design Certification is held over the course of 8 weekends in Montreal, from September 14 to December 8, 2019. Our in-city weekend format is perfect for those with school or work commitments. During this course students learn to read the landscape, analyse problems, and design ecological solutions for the home, garden, farm, and city.
Our Permaculture Design Certificate is taught by Graham Calder (former Geoff Lawton apprentice) and other special topic experts. It's a participatory and dynamic learning experience; classes include in-depth permaculture theory, design methodology, exercises, and group projects. They also include a whole lot of deep questioning, laughter, and growth! The curriculum we follow at P3 was developed by the late Bill Mollison in Australia in the 1970’s, and is today regarded as the standard in permaculture education, recognized and respected worldwide.
This course aims to equip students to feel confident in their ability to design positive solutions in their gardens, in their communities, and in their own lives. The PDC program helps students to closely observe the natural principles and patterns that drive ecological systems. Understanding nature and our place within it is the first step towards healing broken systems.
At P3, our facilitators emphasize that permaculture goes beyond gardening and agriculture; permaculture is a holistic design system that we can apply on any scale and in any situation. With permaculture we can design solutions for: food deserts, the heat-island effect, and mis-managed waste systems. With edible landscaping and ecological architecture, we can increase the efficiency of our homes, our farms, and our communities. The solutions-based vision of permaculture practice is holistic and regenerative.
P3 Permaculture alum have used their PDC to start projects and businesses in permaculture consultation, education, ecological agriculture, regenerative community organizing, urban farming, composting, and much more.
Our curriculum pays particular attention to energy, water, and food systems, as well as various aspects of social permaculture including social economies, and self and community care.
