Modular Permaculture Design Certification

14th Sept 2019 - 20th Sept 2020

 

This is a 10-month modular course located on properties throughout Canterbury to show permaculture systems and living design in action, along with theory-based learning that will cover the diverse range of topics that permaculture holds.

 

We have chosen to step away from the usual residential course of consecutive 20-days model, to year-long learning to allow time from more personal learning and connection between the modules and to see permaculture through the seasons. We also wish to make accessing permaculture information and certification easier by offering a more comfortable time period for those who have full-time work and family life, that can't take 2-3 weeks off to complete this course.

 

Modules are run over both days of the 2nd weekend each month (Sept - Nov & Feb - Jun, Aug - Sept).
