Ecovillage and Ecological Living Design Certificate Couse 2019 (June 28 - August 3)    Fri Jun 28 to Sat Aug 3, 2019, Shawnigan Lake, Vancouver Island, BC

Facilitated by: Starhawk, Charles William, OUR Ecovillage’s Core Teaching Team and more!

The full EDE course includes the entire contents of the Permaculture Design Certificate (PDC) and the Earth Activist Training (EAT) in the first 16 days with Starhawk, which will be followed by 18 days of curriculum to complete the EDE with international Permaculture & Ecovillage Designers and Facilitators and is lead by a core teaching team at OUR ECOVILLAGE.

Get a solid grounding in the biophysical (soils, growing, buildings, energy) and the Design Process in the Permaculture Design Certificate. That will be enriched by the Earth Activist Training being woven through the PDC, which will bring more of the social aspects to the curriculum. That will be further rounded out and contextualized by the Ecovillage Design Program, so that after completion of the full 5-week programme, you have a solid frame of awareness and possibility to guide and inspire your path forward as a response-able community member.
