Already have your Permaculture Design Certificate and looking to take it to the next level? Wayne Weiseman will be offering a Master Design class at the Schuler Homestead in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley of Virginia, June 6-10, 2018. This is a very intensive five-day training. It is the next step to develop proficiency in the permaculture design process.

This is an intensive course; we work for ten to twelve hours per day. The student will go home with a finished design for their property. Students must be committed to actualizing their work.

This master permaculture design practicum is for anyone looking to study permaculture design at a deeper level. Enhance your understanding of the permaculture ethics and principles and practice applying them to property designs with input and guidance from the instructor.

It is required that the prospective student gather any and all information about their particular site, or a client’s site and bring it to the practicum.

Your landscape is filled with possibilities. Locked in your property may be the means to sustain an abundant lifestyle for growing your food, collecting fresh rainwater for drinking and reducing your dependence on purchased resources. This design course will unlock the ecological capital that abounds within your yard, fields, or the neighborhood that surrounds you. It will give you the skills and foresight needed to assess, conceive and design your property into a perpetual harvest garden. Pre-requisite: PDC Certificate.

Some of topics that will be covered in the practicum:

Review of the permaculture concept
Design methodologies
Whole systems thinking
Ecological design
Scale of Permanence and how to utilize it for assessment and design
Base plans, plat maps, satellite maps, scaling and map measurements
Observation exercises
Site assessment and site assessment tool kits
The scale of permanence, sector analysis, the zone system, needs, products and behaviors as templates for design
Recognizing and following natural patterns
Drawing practice and landscape symbols
Drafting and drawing tools
Design drivers, goal setting, envisioning the needs and wants of the client
Bubble diagrams
Draft design (hand-drawing)
Concept evaluation
Plant databases, building databases, and internet resources
Polyculture design
