Permaculture Design Course by Pete the Permie

December 13 @ 9:00 am - 4:30 pm AEDT

We are delighted to announce that Australian permaculture elder Pete the Permie and his team of tutors will conduct an 80 hr course over 9 weeks covering the full PDC at Central Ringwood Community Centre in partnership with North Ringwood Community Centre. The course will be held on Thursdays and three Saturdays, at the site of a developing new Community Garden, designed and started as a project by one of Peter’s 600 past students.

The class will cover subjects such as, the principles of permaculture, water, trees, soils, zones, sectors, site design, animals and the many social structures that apply. Students will be able to design a project of their choice to present to the class on the final day. Materials supplied will include notes, power points and items for the practical sessions in compost, no dig, grafting & site analysis.

There are no prerequisites for this class. The design that will be completed in this class can be used to gain credit for accredited certificate levels within the National Horticulture Training Package. Once you have completed this course successfully, you will be entitled to use Permaculture in your business name, and you may complete designs & teach the subject anywhere in the world.
