Event Description

A short ferry from Vancouver in the tiny village of Roberts Creek comes a unique, low-cost, flexibly scheduled Permaculture Design Course. Meeting once a month over fourteen months in locations on the Sunshine Coast and Greater Vancouver area, the class caters anyone who wants to learn permaculture but cannot afford the cost or intensive time commitment of other courses including lower-income families, students, youth and people for who are called permaculture but have been struggling to find a course that fits their life.

Join this adventure in learning as it journeys to eco-locations like the Heart Gardens, UBC Farm, The Frogs Hollow, Rolling Earth, Country Haven, Strathcona and Cottonwood Gardens, Compost Education Center, Loutet Farm, Sole Food, Old Growth Forest sites and the properties of students who want to host. 

The course is very flexible with busy lives and organized modularly. If you miss a class you can jump in on the the same module in a different class at no extra cost.
I am running two courses concurrently to allow for even more flowing make up classes. A monday class starts in May and a tuesday group starts in June.

2012 Urban-Rural : Southern British Columbia
Permaculture Design Certification Course

A small ring of learners will meet up once a month in the Greater Vancouver and Elphinstone Rainforest to learn about how nature designs itself and how we can become sustainable designers ourselves. Together we will learn how to map and design our land and our lives, plan for emergency, grow organic food in all four seasons and work to build a more sustainable future. The certification granted upon completion of the course will empower participants as  permaculture designers, consultants and beginner teachers able to use the word permaculture legally in their practice, business or project. This sustainability education eco-training certificate is a practical path for greening your life, resume and portfolio. 

Course Topics include:
design methods * patterns in nature * soils and composting * water * trees * design for cool , tropical and arid climates * social permaculture * native food and medicine plants of the Coastal First Peoples and much much more. We have worksheets, permaculture design gaming tools, an online social networking and educational support platform, as well as hundreds of gardens as our living classroom.

All proceeds go towards basic course costs and paying for Delvins permaculture education.
