APW 2021 PDC Programme

For those of you unfamiliar with Auckland Permaculture Workshop – we offer a new form of permaculture education through 12 day-long workshops over the course of a year. These workshops focus on various aspects of ecological design, appropriate technology, social innovation and sustainable living. PDC participants take on a design project applying permaculture principles to their passions, goals and day to day lives. At the completion of the course, participants gain a PiNZ affiliated Permaculture Design Certificate (PDC).

Participants will learn design skills that integrate the environment, people and technology to create resilient ways of living for themselves and their communities.

The programme consists of twelve full-day workshops run on Saturdays (9am–5pm) throughout the year. We are currently taking registrations for our 2021 programme.

We are a network of designers, educators and practitioners who are inspired by innovative and proven applications of permaculture principles in a range of activities and initiatives and how these models can be applied to the Auckland bioregion. The foundations of our organisation were established by Finn Mackesy and Gary Marshall in 2008. In 2010 Rilke de Vos joined the team, followed by Amabel Hunting from 2011 through to 2014 and Ron Sperber in 2013. In addition to the three current directors, we have many active contributors. By working in an interdisciplinary environment with a group of educators, and designers, Auckland Permaculture Workshop (APW) have developed and offer a range of workshops that explore permaculture solutions in the Auckland bioregion.

APW is a collaborative education initiative set up to explore and create innovative permaculture solutions for the Auckland bioregion.
