Seattle Permaculture Design Course 2016

We regret to inform you that we have decided to cancel the March-May 2016 PDC.
We didn’t have enough students to make it a go financially.

We still want to run the course this summer at a venue just north of Seattle.
We have not made a decision whether this would be a:
A two week residential pdc or
 6 weekends over 3 months format
 6-month, one weekend a month PDC.
If you are interested in this PDC let us know which format you would prefer.
We will make up a plan once we get some feedback from prospective students
Permaculture is far more than gardening and farming.  It is applicable to all parts of life and all parts of the economy.  We really encourage you to explore the permaculture path throughout your life.

Design productive and beautiful yards, farms and properties. This course will impart permaculture principles and methodologies through lecture, discussion, field trips and hands-on activities. Permaculture Design students will develop the practical skills and knowledge necessary to plan, design, and implement sustainable systems that are in harmony with the natural world. These skills can be applied anywhere in the world, focusing specifically on the Maritime Pacific Northwest.

Upon completion of the course, participants receive a Certificate of Permaculture Design issued by the Permaculture Institute of North America (PINA) and the Permaculture Institute USA (PIUSA).
