2015 Permaculture Design Certification Course

Cleveland, OH 

Saturday, February 14, 2015 through Sunday, April 19, 2015
8:30 a.m. – 5 p.m

Open/Close

This Permaculture Design Certification (PDC) course delivers an intensive, introductory curriculum that certifies students in core permaculture principles and practical techniques for restoring damaged ecosystems and building social and economic stability within our communities. PDC’s are a unique opportunity for anyone working in sustainable agriculture, community-building, design and architecture to further build their design skills.
PDC students complete and present a full permaculture site design as part of their certification. They get first-hand experience in site evaluation and mapping, client interviews, design approaches and presentation formats. Students who complete all course hours and successfully complete their design project receive a Permaculture Design Consultant’s Certificate. The certificate is a pre-requisite for further advanced training in permaculture design and teacher training courses.

Taught by instructors Peter Bane, Mark Cohen, Jonathan Hull, Marilyn McHugh, Chris Kennedy, Allison Hurley and local guests.

The course runs Saturdays and Sundays on the following weekends: February 14 – 15, February 28 – March 1, March 14 – 15, March 21 – 22, March 28 – 29, April 11 – 12, and April 18 – 19.

Overnight lodging is available on-site for a limited number of out-of-town students.

The course will also include one weekend trip to Athens, Ohio (April 11 – 12, 2015) to explore its well-developed local food system and visit the farmsite and intentional community of instructor Mark Cohen. Carpooling will be arranged.

Additional supplemental events and learning opportunities will be available on off weekends and evenings.
