Event Description

Langara College : Permaculture Design Program

http://langara.ca/continuing-studies/programs-and-courses/programs/permaculture/index.html

Permaculture looks at how nature is designed, and how we can design our own gardens, homes, businesses and relationships in light of nature’s operating system. It gives you the tools to be healthier and happier, save time, energy and money, get connected to your community and live in alignment with your values.

Travel to farms, forests and gardens on a creative learning journey. We will learn how to map and design our homes, communities and lives, planning for disaster and growing more of our own food.

Field trips include visits to farms, forests, gardens and parks like Means of Production Garden, Loutet Farm, Strathcona/Cottonwood Gardens, City Farmer, Kits Community Gardens, Brewery Creek Community Garden, Yarrow Ecovillage, UBC Farm and numerous other locations in Greater Vancouver.

This 15 month, weekend program offers accessibility and ease and while allowing you to observe changes throughout the seasons. It is flexible for busy lives and organized modularly. Missed classes can be done at no extra cost with other groups and there is no time limit to complete the certification.

Completion of this course earns you the internationally recognized certificate from the Permaculture Research Institute Australia or the Permaculture Research Institute USA. This certification empowers participants to become professional permaculture designers, consultants and teachers.

Starts May 27, 2017
