Permaculture Design Certificate Course 2019 (June 23 - July 14)    Sun Jun 23 to Sun Jul 14, 2019, Shawnigan Lake, Vancouver Island, BC

PDC - 2019 Permaculture Design Certificate Course

Facilitated by Starhawk, Charles Williams and many other fantastic guest teachers!

This two-week permaculture design certificate course will focus on organizing and activism which are grounded in concepts of earth-based spirituality. Learn how to heal soil and cleanse water, how to design human systems that mimic natural systems using a minimum of energy and resources, and how to create real abundance so that YOU can be a changemaker in environmental/social justice. Explore the strategies and organizing tools we need to make our visions real, as well as the daily practice, magic, and processes that sustain our spirits. Participatory, hands-on teaching with lots of projects, games, guest teachers/regulatory authorities, and field trips to other important precedent-setting permaculture projects make up this intensive one-of-a-kind curriculum in ecological design.
