We are excited to return to the Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association Education center in Unity for a live, in-person Permaculture Design Certificate (PDC) course. After two years of all Zoom all the time, hopefully we can agree that something substantive is lost when we’re not in “meatspace” together, face to face. There’s a lot to human communication that gets lost when it’s mediated through a screen, and we have always believed that in-person instruction is inherently superior.
We are hosting Maine’s PDC through the Maine Ecological Design School, our new educational imprint. The course will convene over a series of 5 weekends from May through August.
Permaculture is a holistic system of ecological design for regenerative land use and sustainable living. It’s about the design of healthy landscapes that produce an abundance of food, fuel, fiber and medicine for people, wildlife, and livestock. This 100-hour certification program will feature workshops, films, lectures, hands-on skill sharing, site visits and a capstone practicum with a live client or a design project of your choosing.
The Maine PDC convenes the weekend of May 21-22 and will continue over 4 (two and three day) weekends: June 11-12, July 8-10 and 29-31, and August 26-28. Sliding scale tuition and solidarity pricing are available. Tuition range is $1250-$1875. To learn more and register visit maine-pdc.com.
