  • Permaculture Design Course

    Community event



    21 January – 3 February, 2017, Dodges Ferry, Southern Tasmania

    Join Hannah Moloney, Nick Ritar and guests for 2 weeks of deep permaculture design learning. You’ll leave this course knowing how to design resilient, robust landscapes & people-scapes in a  beautiful learning environment.

    *Book in with two or more people & pay $1600 per person – a saving of $250*

    This Permaculture Design Certificate (PDC) has been structured so you get to design your own property of choice, plus complete a permaculture design for a real life client and property. This provides you the opportunity to test and practice permaculture designing in a range of contexts with the support of experienced designers and practitioners right at your side to step you through it all.

    As a fully catered, residential course you’ll get to immerse yourself in all things permaculture with like-minded folk. Classes run from 8:30am – 5pm each day with some optional (but highly recommended) evening sessions over the two weeks.
