Event Description

Next Permaculture Design Course for 2015 starts in July.

 Permaculture Courses at Northey Street City Farm

Northey Street City Farm runs weekend Introduction to Permaculture courses, Permaculture Design Certificate (PDC) courses, and more.

*Permaculture Design Certificate (PDC) Course

The Permaculture Design Course is the classic permaculture qualification and forms the backbone of sustainability education at Northey Street City Farm.  This exciting program gives you knowledge and skills for designing productive gardens and properties, growing your own food, applying appropriate technologies, using resources wisely, designing animal and plant systems to minimise your workload, rebuilding community values, and generally reducing your impact on our precious environment.

The Permaculture Design Course gives a good overview of permaculture ethics, principles and practice, with an emphasis on design. At Northey Street, we include significant hands-on practical experience as well, and incorporate partnerships with other community organisations.

Dates for 2015:

Fridays from 17th July to 23rd October

Session Times: typical days run from 9am – 4:30pm with a lunch break.
