Join the Eldenbridge Institute for a fall Permaculture Design Certification (PDC) class starting the last weekend of August and running on six alternating weekends through the beginning of November.
Permaculture is a holistic design science that is based in the observation of natural systems. It goal is to create regenerative systems that support human communities sustainably over a time scale of centuries.
The Eldenbridge PDC is designed to meet all of the requirements for the internationally recognized Permaculture Design Certification class, including all 72 hours of required course material, design project, and supplemental materials.
Some of the included topics are:
- Observation and modeling of natural systems
- Permaculture’s three design ethics
- Design principles for creating stable and regenerative systems
- Sector and zone analysis
- Understanding patterns in design
The main location for the course will be Duncan Farms, a working Permaculture farm located about a 15 minute drive east of downtown Huntsville, AL. Duncan Farms is situated on 60 acres and features a newly established food forest.
Normal tuition for the full PDC course is $995, with a $100 deposit due at registration. The early registration rate before August 15 is $800.
A students and faculty discount rate of $600 is available for high school and college students and their teachers. Some scholarships may be available, so please contact us if you are interested in attending but are limited because of funding.
