This 11-day PDC Course runs March 28th through April 7th, 2012.  In this course, you will learn: Regenerative design studies, full loop waste systems, food forest design and implementation, community scale fruit and vegetable production, plant propagation, greenhouse operations, home/community scale composting, fractal patterning application, water harvesting, pasture management, rotational grazing strategies and implementation, home scale permaculture, food preservation and storage, social permaculture and much more.

Permaculture teaches the language of nature, how to communicate within the systems we depend on, and how to redesign them with innate intelligence that supports life and abundance. The full certificate course, led by seasoned permaculture instructors, will be held at Sunrise Ranch in Loveland, Colorado.

Tuition is $950.  Tuition includes lunch daily during the course, official design course T-shirt, and an internationally recognized certificate of completion.

A greater consciousness of the interconnectedness of human life with the environment is the next great learning curve that we are all a part of.
