It is also ideal for people who have taken one or more of the traditional PDCs & would like to both widen & deepen their theoretical knowledge & move on with their practice, on their own projects, with some steady support.
Also ideal for people who are considering starting on their Permaculture Diploma pathway – you can easily move up levels from here, & start to build your design portfolio.
This course consists of 20 classes that you can attend over 3 months. Our content-rich multimedia classes are between 1:30 to 2 hours long on average.
You take the classes whilst you develop your own designs with our support in applying the basic principles of design given in the classes, to your real-life experience.
It includes sharing & interacting with other students on the same path
& a weekly group live meeting with tutors & course colleagues to put questions, present designs & sharing of learning & experience in real time.
You can also take this option in the practical intensive format, in two months > see the GaiaSis Intensives page.
The Permaculture Design Certificate is awarded after the course on presenting two of your own design projects, which demonstrate that you have understood the basic principles of design.
