Summary: 

Join the Permaculture movement, gain practical answers and solutions for today’s global problems and immerse yourself into a transformative lifestyle that can make a real difference for you, the global community and our planet!

Permaculture is a design system for regenerative human settlements based on the principles of natural ecosystems. It provides an ethical framework and creative ways to interact harmoniously with our environment. As a worldwide movement for an earth-based living and bioregional economy, it brings together a broad set of methods, technologies, and approaches for community-oriented solutions to the challenges our planet is facing today. The Permaculture Design Certificate Course (PDC) is an internationally-recognized 72-hour course that provides the basic understanding, information and ideas on how to design a sustainable and regenerative system in balance with our natural environment.

Guided by the core of Bill Mollison’s 72-hour curriculum and David Holmgren’s seven domains of permaculture action, our course participants will have the unique opportunity to learn about permaculture in an off-the-grid, community-based setting. Based on our real-life experiences, this course offers hands-on applied permaculture skills immersed in our well-established educational center, Terra Alta, located in the beautiful bioregion of Sintra, Portugal.

This course is for anyone who is interested in permaculture - a sustainable lifestyle, organic gardening, farming and forestry, energy-efficient buildings and technologies - and who believes that we need to find ways to care for ourselves, for each other and for the Earth. It will help you identify steps for positive change for yourself, your family and your community.
