2-week Intensive Permaculture Design Certificate
August 2023 - Wakefield, Québec
Join us for our 2023 intensive PDC course!
Our permaculture design certification (PDC) is ideal for anyone who craves to be immersed in the permaculture worldview and create regenerative solutions.
The course begins with our 30-hour online training to introduce you to the fundamental theories of permaculture. Training can be completed at your own pace.
Then, join us at Lanthorn Farm in Wakefield, Québec for an intensive 2 weeks filled with hands-on workshops, in-class learning, and in-the-field exploration. You'll also get to experience life at the Farm, immerse yourself in nature, and make valuable connections with fellow PDC students.
We want to ensure that our students understand the essence of permaculture as a design philosophy, such that they can apply it to regenerating not only gardens and farms, but cities and human communities too. If you have a project in mind and want help designing and implementing it after the PDC course, check out our PDC To The Moon option!
Note that if you are staying at the farm, you must arrive on the August 20th to set up camp.
