Hello out there folks. For those of you looking around at online PDC's:

What makes ours different then many other online Permaculture courses?

* We have multiple teachers with intensive one-on-one instructor feedback, and a low student/teacher ratio.
* Our classes are taught at a college level, where students are expected to demonstrate their learning through 19 assignments, 10 content quizzes, and required peer reviews of other student's work.

This is not a "sit-back-and-watch" PDC. We start the design project on day 1, and each assignment builds another layer of understanding that's working towards the final design for the site of your choosing. You literally will not make it through this course without attaining some level of competency. You can see examples of the level of work in our student design portfolios and read testimonials here:

This is the same exact class that Oregon State University students are earning 4 credits for in the Department of Horticulture, and we run it online for-credit Jan-March every year, and on-site for-credit Oct-Dec.

You can read an article about how we structure the course here:

So if you're ready for a highly interactive and academically rigorous Online Permaculture Design Course, then sign up with us!

Thanks! Please feel free to contact me with any questions: amillison@gmail.com

For the Earth,
Andrew Millison

Hey Andrew,

Good luck with the course.

I checked out your website and just wanted to let you know I really love the design!
