Event Description

Today we are witnessing a growing crisis of community on many levels. Disruptions in the ecological web of our planet, political and religious differences between nations, as well as the uprising of people oppressed by the current economic situation are all inspiring the formation of new kinds of community. Increasingly people are coming together to co-operate in the restoration and healing of our homeworld.

As individuals and communities, neighbourhoods and nations, we are all in transition in many levels. In this time of rapid change, our actions are weaving the very fabric of the future. There is no better time than 2012 to step into a more active role as community leaders, teachers and stewards. For those that have already done a permaculture design course, you are in a unique position to step forward and evolve your practice to benefit out world.

Whether you are an experienced teacher or a new graduate of the PDC, the permaculture path of life long learning offers many opportunities for growth and evolution. Boost your life skillset, resume and portfolio with a group of advanced students inspired to get credit for two years of applied permaculture work in any area of site design, consulting, aid or teaching. Whether you focus your work at home, in your community, in your business, or on larger projects you can get credit for the work you are doing by earning a valuable Permaculture Diploma.
