Permaculture Urban Landscape Design Course

Posted by Nick Huggins over 11 years ago

The course will be run at the PRI’s Zaytuna Farm, under the expert hands of Nick Huggins. See Nick’s author profile here, and his WPN profile here.

Starts Jun 13, 2011 and runs for 5 day(s).

To take this course you must have already completed a full Permaculture Design Certificate (PDC) Course.

During this intensive 5-day Permaculture Urban Landscape Design course, students will learn the fundamentals of running a professional permaculture design and consultancy business. This is a hands-on learning experience, from the ground up. You will be able to manage contractor bidding and installation of the design on behalf of the client, able to produce concepts and plans for urban, rural and aid projects, learn about proper selection of plants, softscaping, hardscaping, costing and estimation, and have the opportunity to learn the fundamentals of design, implementation and execution in several real life environments. 

The first two days students will be involved in the consultation and a real life design that will be presented to the client on an existing site. Days three, four and five will be the construction and installation of a second site. You will be involved in the full installation of a permaculture design created by PRI's previous 10-week internship group. Working in small groups, this will give students the opportunity to design one site and to install another site, under the supervision of Nick Huggins.

At the end of the five day course, students will be able to feel confident to start or expand a permaculture business and effectively manage a project site. A professional portfolio will be produced by the students that they can present to a potential client or organization.
