Permaculture Design Course
Six Weekends October through March at American River Ranch
As part of our Grow Your Groceries and Harvest Sacramento Edible City Initiatives, we will be hosting a Permaculture Design course (PDC) with lead instructor Toby Hemenway. Held over six weekends from October through March, this 72-hour course will teach you the principles of permaculture, as well as strategies and tools for designing regenerative homes, landscapes, businesses and communities. Upon successful completion of the course, participants receive a certificate from the Permaculture Institute USA.
Permaculture is a revolutionary design framework that applies nature's patterns to human systems. It uses ecological principles to integrate food and energy production, shelter, and community development. Its aim is the creation of sustainable human settlements that are harmoniously woven into the environment and that have the diversity, stability, and resilience of natural ecosystems.
This course is recommended for homeowners, farmers, gardeners, homesteaders, design professionals, community leaders and activists; in short, if you are looking for the tools and strategies to create a sustainable future, this course is for you.
Instructors include Toby Hemenway, Larry Santoyo, Michael Becker, Janine Bjornson, Tom Ward, and other guest experts.
