Next Session: 13th to 27th of January, 2024
The Permaculture Design Certification Course (PDC) is a 72-hour minimum course. The Hawaiian 2 week intensive Permaculture Course includes 8 extra hours to allow for practicums, workshops, tours and permaculture farm experiences (total 80h). The Permaculture Certificate is globally recognized throughout the world. The holder of a Permaculture Design certificate has achieved a working understanding of ecologically based site design, planning and management as well as an understanding of principles, strategies and techniques available to inspire directions toward community resiliency, economic stability and personal growth.
Throughout the entire course you will be engaged in learning and experiencing an empowering way of living in the world, surrounded and supported by like-minded people and instructors. Our goal is to make you a part of our farm community (Ohana). Activities may include making an “A frame,” laying out and digging a water harvesting contour swale, sheet mulching, pruning, seed planting, plant propagation, bed preparation, compost pile making, water harvesting techniques, natural building, herbalism, Hawaiian culture, clearing existing food forest, community garden service and more.
