Permaculture Design Certificate
Delivered over 12 weeks this course arms you with the skills to design and create your own regenerative future! Here is what others are saying about their past Element Eco-Design workshop experiences!
"...opened my eyes and my mind to a much more sustainable and efficient way of living." Jordan, Victoria BC.
"My eyes are open to the magic and transformational reality of Permaculture....I can truly say my future is changed Perma-nently!" Sue, Hedly BC
We have chosen to deliver this workshop over 6 alternating weekdays (Monday-Tuesday) to make it most accessible to you. Most Permaculture Design Certificate are delivered over an incredibly intense full-time 14 day period with one maybe 2 days off in the middle; this is how we took our certification in Australia. But, we understand that this is not feasible for everyone, many of us work, have kids or have a farm to run. Which is why we have chosen the part-time format for this PDC. You still get the same amazing content, focused instruction and community building opportunities but with a little time to digest the info between sessions. This will help you retain more info and even put some of your skill to use at home during the 12 week program.
Here is how it breaks down, all sessions run 9am-5pm on Monday and Tuesday:
Week 1, January 12 & 13: Introduction and Patterns in Design
Week 2, January 26 & 27: Trees and Water
Week 3, February 9 & 10: Soils and Earthworks
Week 4, February 23 & 24: Bio Regional Strategies
Week 5, March 9 & 10: Urban Strategies and Aquaculture
Week 6, March 23 & 24: Strategies for an Alternative Nation
We will cover a ton of material over this time and most of our time will be spent in a classroom setting but fear not, we will have special hand-on sessions throughout the weeks and you will get a chance to get your hands dirty!
Real World Experience: Along with vital design theory you will be gaining essential real world design experience. As part of your Final Design Exercise you will be consulting on a real world design project to create a Permaculture Design for an actual client. This is an incredible opportunity to put the ideas and strategies you have learned over the course of the workshop in to practice.
