Permaculture is an internationally recognised design science. Permaculture gives us a method and culture to design sustainable and regenerative systems for agriculture and social systems like city planning and house design.
Our world is suffering from climate change and crisis, Permaculture design gives the users methods to repair damaged systems and create permanence. Whether you are designing for your own house, community or as a professional designer for clients, attending a Permaculture Design Certificate Course (PDC) is a great thing to do. For many people whom attend our courses this is a life changing event, one that will give you a clear direction to take to live in a sustainable regenerative world.
