PDC in the wonderful mountains of Slovakia later this summer! It is our third one together there and the site is growing well with lots of regenerative agriculture next steps now happening.  Its part of a historic ecovillage which is a very interesting context to study in.

THE COURSE: Format and Content
The course will be an 80-hour Permaculture Design Certificate Course spread out over 14 days. This ample time allows students to digest the material, get hands-on experience and work thoroughly on the final design project and presentation. The course will be certified through TreeYo Permacultureas we are guided by Bill Mollison’s curriculum that comprises the 14 chapters of his book “Permaculture: A Designer’s Manual”. Our schedule reflects this commitment and has a strong emphasis on how the design principles and process influence site develop and systems management while always acknowledging the people care side of it all. This course will help you gain confidence in setting up land based designs but also the inextricable link with creative integration of humans. We will cover the following topics throughout the course:
Ethics, Principles, and Methods of Permaculture Design
Pattern Understanding: Interpretation and Application
Climatic Factors: Broad Climatic Zones and Microclimate – Effects on Landscape and Design
Water: Harvesting, Conservation, and landscape hydration
Trees and their Energy Transactions: Tree Systems for landscapes and Tree Identification
Soils: Classification, Food Web, and Restoration
Aquaculture: Food Web, Aquatic Plants, Chinampas, Tyre Ponds, Water Quality Parameters
Animal Systems: Integrate worms, chickens, goats, and many other animals in your design
Strategies for Tropical, Dry-land, and Temperate Climates: Influences on Vegetation, Housing, and Earthworks
Introduction to Natural Building: Earth as a Building Material
Fermentation and Nutrition: Sauerkraut, Kimchi, Sourdough Bread and Pickles
Local Food Systems:  CSA-Community Supported Agriculture,  Cooperatives, Food-Coops
