The PDC curse covers an extensive range of topics from understanding the function of natural ecosystems, replicating the design of natural ecosystems and creating and healthy and resilient man-made systems.
Apply this to the design of regenerative foodscapes in your backyard or small farm - for creating a year around abundance of fresh and nutrient-dense food.
Full details of the PDC - HERE
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).
The programme is heavily dependent upon online involvement in forums - where you share reflections upon the content explored within the topics and how that applies to your design project. You therefore benefit from an engaged and collaborative online learning community - in addition to the rich and detailed learning materials.
This course typically takes 6 months to complete - if spending approximately 2 hours each week to complete.
The PDC is taught by Richard Pedley, an affiliated teacher of the Permaculture Educators Guild within PiNZ. On completion of the course you obtain a PDC from Regenpreneur that is also recognised by the PiNZ body in New Zealand. The course 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.
