Permaculture Design Certificate & Workshops


Registrations are open for our 2020 programme

Auckland Permaculture Workshop (APW) offer a new form of permaculture education through 12 day-long workshops over the course of a year. These in-depth workshops focus on various aspects of ecological design, appropriate technology, social innovation and sustainable living that provide students with a comprehensive overview of permaculture and regenerative design theory and practice.

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

APW PDC participants take on a design project of their choosing applying permaculture principles to their passions, goals and day to day lives. Completion of the APW programme and the Design Project will culminate in participants receiving a PiNZ affiliated Permaculture Design Certificate.
