Which permaculture course is for me?
If you’re interested in the environment and how we can design not just sustainable but regenerative and ethical systems, that are good for people and planet, then a permaculture design course (PDC) is for you. Participating on a PDC is a transformative experience that will enable you to make many positive changes in your own life and the world around you.
I offer a range of different permaculture courses here in Britain, and occasionally overseas, including an Introduction to Permaculture, the full certified Permaculture Design Course, Practical Forest Gardening, Ethical Livelihood Design, Observation and Mapping, and Systems and Patterns.
Most recently I've also added an online course that guides you in developing your own site, using our new home as the case study. It's a course that you can start anytime and progress at your own pace.
Have a look at the list below to see which permaculture design course is for you.
