I do hope you got good benefit and value from the experience - and to continue to improve upon development of the course and the experience people have I would greatly appreciate your time filling in the survey below.
Below you will also find your certificate to download for completion of the course.
Its been a pleasure having you in the course and I hope you will continue learning with us - through enrollment in some of out other great courses - or to get the integrative experience offered in the Permaculture Design Certificate.
Permaculture Design Certificate
The online Permaculture Design Certificate (PDC) programme provides a comprehensive analysis of regenerative design and its application to creating a foodscape that provides an abundance of organic and nutrient dense food.
The course is broken into 6 core topics (follow the links below for further information on each) that explore the foundation and application of permaculture design. These topics are explored within an interactive online learning platform - where you will have the opportunity to collaborate with other learners to extend and deepen your learning. Each of these topics have associated assessment tasks to support your learning.
- Regenerative Design
- Healthy Ecosystems
- Topography & Water
- Creating Micro Climates
- Building Soil
- Social Permaculture
These topics are applied to creating a design portfolio for how to transform your property into a regenerative foodscape (follow link below for further details). Completion of the design portfolio and assessment tasks within the core topics is required to complete the PDC and obtain your certificate.
Additional topics are provided for reference - to provide resources to support you in achieving the best outcomes in your design portfolio (see details in links below). These topics are optional - but are presented within an interactive online platform to support your learning and collaborate with others. These topics explore the details of permaculture design within different landscape systems and how to harness strategy, mindset, technology, financial management and more - to achieve your best results.
The goal of the PDC programme is to develop a new way of seeing the world - often called the 'permaculture lens'. This new perspective brings to life the productive possibilities of a landscape and how the patterns seen in nature can be harnessed to create regenerative outcomes within diverse and inter-connected foodscapes.
You explore this within the context of developing a detailed site design and implementation strategy for creating a regenerative foodscape on your property (or one you are familiar with).
About the PDC
The PDC taught through Agrifutures is endorsed by Permaculture in New Zealand and provides a gateway to a career in permaculture design, creating an abundant and balanced food-producing system, understanding the design of regenerative systems and provides a self-empowering life philosophy with the tools and techniques to create a positive difference in the world.
Our courses explore the elements fundamental to the design of a permaculture systems and how this is expressed within different types of systems. The resources within the courses are based around a project that applies concepts directly to measurable outcomes - that support you in achieving your goals.
