Learning about permaculture: online and in-person

Are you ready to begin your permaculture journey? Or are you ready to take it to the next level?

The team at Holmgren Design is excited to be offering two upcoming permaculture courses:

Live Online Permaculture Design Course

– with David Holmgren, Beck Lowe & guests 

Learn from experienced and enthusiastic permaculture tutors, including David Holmgren and Beck Lowe, from the comfort of your own home.

The PDC is capped at 26 students with live sessions each week, so there will be plenty of opportunity for everyone to participate, be involved in discussions and get to know one another.

Participants will work on a design project of their own choice throughout the course – a great chance to design or re-design where you live, or another site of interest.

This PDC allows those who would not be able to attend our residential PDC, due to distance or other factors, to have a learning experience with permaculture co-originator David Holmgren.

The live online sessions start on Friday 21st October and continue until 10th March 2023 (with a three-week break: 23rd & 30th December and 6th January).
