Online Permaculture Design Course with David Holmgren + Beck Lowe

We are a bit excited here at Holmgren Design. We have been running residential PDCs annually at the Rocklyn Ashram for years, but this is our first foray into the online PDC space. Rather than pre-recording all the sessions, we are running this PDC as a live online course, and limiting the class size to 26, so there will be plenty of opportunity for everyone to participate, be involved in discussions and get to know one another.

The two main tutors are David Holmgren and Beck Lowe, with periodic sessions to be taught by other experienced permaculture practitioners.

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.

The 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, and the effervescent Beck Lowe. 

The online course runs for 18 weeks from August – November 2022, with live sessions on Tuesday evenings, and every second Saturday afternoon.
