There will be around weekday evening sessions between 10th February and 5th June, each 6.30-9.30pm, plus some weekend days.

This is a classroom-based, theoretical course with site visits, not a hands-on, practical or gardening course. Topics to be covered will include:

  • What is permaculture: ethics, principles & history.
  • The ecological basis of permaculture: global climate, weather & ecology.
  • Patterns in the landscape: major patterns of geology, flora, water & land use.
  • Permaculture design methodology.
  • Land use and nature stewardship: Soil, cropping, water use and animals in permaculture systems.
  • Social applications: permaculture design in the broader contexts of communities.
  • Finance & economics, land tenure & economic reform.
  • Permaculture in built environments and technologies.
  • Implementing permaculture: business strategies, personal strategies and practicing permaculture beyond the PDC.

Trainers: Beck Lowe, Ben Habib, Donna Livermore, Graeme George, Ian Lillington, Joel Meadows, Kat Lavers, Monique Miller and Peta Christensen.
