ABOUT THIS COURSE
This course aims to equip students to feel confident in their ability to design positive solutions in their gardens, in their communities, and in their own lives. At P3 Permaculture we emphasize that permaculture goes beyond agriculture; permaculture is a holistic design system that we can apply on any scale and in any situation.
​
The first principle of permaculture is “Observe and Interact.” Close observation of the natural principles that drive ecological systems is one of the cornerstones of permaculture. In permaculture we believe that nature knows best, and that designs based on earth’s logic is the best way to heal broken systems.
​
Our curriculum pays particular attention to energy, water, and food systems, as well as various aspects of social permaculture including social economies, and self and community care.

The Permaculture Design Certificate is a participatory and dynamic learning experience; classes include in-depth permaculture theory, design methodology, exercises, and group projects. They also include a whole lot of deep questioning, laughter, and growth! The curriculum we follow at P3 was developed by the late Bill Mollison in Australia in the 1970’s, and is today regarded as the standard in permaculture education, recognized and respected worldwide.
