Learn in paradise with some of the world's leading experts through interactive tutorials, hands on practical work and field trips.
You will visit some of the wealth of living examples of sustainable practices within Golden Bay like a 30 year old intentional community and a famous local music & restaurant venue that embodies sustainable practices. You will hear the stories of conscious, local businesses and experience first hand how they work, be a part of our Harvest Festival & Living Wood Fair (in Autumn only).
There are two projects: our main design project and your personal project. For your Permaculture Design Certificate, you will work in a group with a real client to complete a full design for their property.
In addition you will complete a personal project allowing you to synthesise the relevant learning from all the course modules. This project is deliberately open-ended allowing your to tailor it into a meaningful, productive exercise for your life.
