What is a PDC? A Permaculture Design Course (PDC) teaches whole-systems thinking, focusing on relationships and holistic solutions. This integrated, holistic, long-term view of diverse topics such as food, water, energy, shelter, social capital, economy, and local communities, is the key to sustainable living. This certificate course will give you foundational understandings, and introduce you to strategies and tools for designing and living in landscapes, homes, businesses, and communities that are regenerative.
