Permaculture Design Course

Published by Jack on

From 25th November – 18th December (3 days a week) + 6 months mentoring.

This is a free program for young people aged 16 – 30

Permaculture Design is a powerful tool for creating systems that meet our human needs but also support the ecosystem as a whole. This groundbreaking free program starts with an internationally recognised 72 hour Permaculture Design Course, plus an additional Social Enterprise Design component – that’s why we’re calling it a PDC+. The course is delivered three days a week over four weeks and is followed by six months of optional mentoring to help you develop a social enterprise.

William de Geer is one of the graduates of the first PDC+. Click on this digital badge to learn more about the program:
