Permaculture Design Course

PDC -  Permaculture Design Course accredited by PRI of Australia, with Rhamis  Kent & Giuseppe Tallarico as your teachers. A program designed  personally by Bill Mollison, the co-founder of permaculture.

 A program designed personally by Bill Mollison, the co-founder of  permaculture, the Permaculture Design Course (PDC) gives you both the  vision and the practical tools you will need to realize your own piece  of paradise, completely independent in terms of food and energy  production. Based on the best project planning practices, the PDC  teaches you how to imitate natural systems, produce abundant food and  energy, design and build energy-efficient homes, collect
and use rainwater,  create fertile soils, improve animal welfare and maximize their  production and develop economic and legal systems that will create a  society based on a new farming culture with a strong sense of  solidarity.

More than a course, the  PDC is a profound experience, during which you will develop a clear  vision of abundance and resilience, of viable local economies, of  healthy ecosystems and thriving communities, where people work together  to provide food, energy, shelter and water, and meet the needs of all,  in a socially just and regenerative way. You will be helped through the  learning process thanks to the experience of Rhamis Kent and Giuseppe  Tallarico, who will encourage a continuous exchange of ideas, including  evening screenings of thought-provoking films and documentaries.

 During your time on the PDC, you will have the opportunity to design  and plan for your own multifunctional business enterprise, through  individual and group exercises, and under the close monitoring of the  technical experts on hand. Bring your property’s documentation with you;  computer files, maps, photographs and climate data, all that you will  use to define and plan your project.

 Doing the PDC is an important opportunity to acquire the skills that  you will need to regenerate your property and make it totally  self-sufficient. Once you have a clear vision and a functional design on  paper, you will be ready to take action. The creation of your "food  paradise" can begin immediately: following a process of soil  regeneration by those working it. Furthermore, you can join the  international network of the World Permaculture Association.
