Come join us in Spring 2018
We’re happy to announce VEG’s next Permaculture Design Certificate running from 26 Oct – 11 Nov 2018. It will be an immersive, exciting, challenging experience, taking you to working permaculture properties — urban and rural — based at the beautiful Yandoit farm in Central Victoria.
Our goal is to make it the most fun and valuable learning adventure you’ve ever had.
What can you expect?
- Hands-on real-world permaculture design experience
- Fresh insights and strategies for working with nature, rather than against it, to provide for human needs while healing damaged landscapes
- A window into resilience skills for a changing world
- Probably some friends for life
- Much more!
VEG’s spring intensive 2018 Permaculture Design Certificate (PDC) course includes over 120 hours of contact time (most PDCs are 72 hours) and will run over fourteen days and evenings (with a weekend off in the middle). See full dates here.
Tutors include VEG Directors Adam Grubb & Dan Palmer who have experience designing or implementing hundreds of properties, VEG’s uniquely wonderful warehouse manager, designer and educator Carey Priest, and we’ll be visiting some of our heroes in their own properties including permaculture co-originator David Holmgren and partner Su Dennett, natural builder extraordinaire Joel Meadows and many others. Plus we’ve handpicked other brilliant tutors for special topics who are the best we know. Read the bios.
This permaculture design course will be run from a variety of locations in and around Central Vic, with a base at Michael and Lisa Jackson’s Yandoit Farm, where camping is available.
The course fee is $2300 (with discounts for groups) and $1980 earlybird special until 26 April 5pm.
