Our course is the 72-hour Permaculture Design Certificate (PDC) Course, as taught by the Permaculture founders: Bill Mollison and David Holmgren.

The complete permaculture design (PDC) course is an intensive 72-hour program. This course includes study modules backed by practical exercises, photos, field work and videos

Students can start the course at any time. There is a time limit of 1 year to complete, but most students finish the course within 2-3 months. You can work at your own pace, and some enthusiastic students have finished the course within a month.

At the end of the course, you will receive an internationally recognized Permaculture Design Certificate. Only those who have completed an official 72-hour PDC course are legally authorized to use the word “Permaculture” for commercial purposes.
