Design Your Site with Permaculture

Online

This new and unique course is for anyone wanting to use a permaculture approach to design a site - whether it be a home garden, allotment, community garden, forest garden, market garden or smallholding. While material is taught online, this is very much a hands-on practical course, organised around a real-life site design. You’ll be watching videos and reading text, but also invited to go out and put it all into practice for yourself.

The course is suitable for:

  • Complete beginners, new to permaculture
  • Permaculture Design Course (PDC) graduates
  • Diploma in Applied Permaculture Design apprentices
