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).
This course is of four main parts outlined below:
The Creative Agent: This topic explores how an awareness of your strengths is focusing them on a clear mission leads to the best outcomes in life. The following concepts are explored in this topic.
- Self Reflection
- Developing Principles
- Identify Your Strengths
- Finding Your Purpose
Regenerative Design: This topic explores the philosophy of regenerative design - aimed at creating resilient and healthy outcomes within a diverse and inter-connected system. The following concepts are explored in this topic:
- Ecological Balance
- Regenerative Outcomes
Building Your Mission: This topic explores how you can leverage knowledge of creating beneficial structures in your life that support you in achieving your goals. Concepts explored in this topic are:
- Building habits
- Connecting with Others
Creating A Life Plan: The last topic bring all these concepts together into creating a life plan to create a blue print of your what is your vision and mission, what STRETCH and SMART goals you can set to progress you towards that goal and what are how you can plan out your next 3 moves to build momentum and start the journey.
- This last topic involves submitting a life plan report. Upon completion of this last task you will be awarded a Regenerative Changemaker Certificate.
