Targeted at PDC holders looking to deepen their understanding of permaculture and improve their conceptual skills and tool kit for design and action. This two day workshop is ideal for those ready to take the next step in their permaculture journey, and who have read David Holmgren’s book Permaculture Principles and Pathways Beyond Sustainability.
During the course you will be immersed much deeper in the theory and application of David’s twelve permaculture principles and be engaged in both theory and practical sessions to enable you to learn new teaching and knowledge-sharing skills for working with permaculture principles in a range of scenarios.
This two day course is designed to deepen understanding of permaculture by practitioners, designers, activists and teachers. The first day of the course focuses on permaculture design principles with workshopping in groups to draw out the collective knowledge and experience of the participants.
The second day focuses on the critical design skill of reading landscape as a major expression of the principle observe and interact. Working in groups, participants will explore the immediate environment of the venue to expand the experience of what can be learnt by observation using all the senses.
