The Permaculture Design Certificate course with Anne Freiwald and Lydia Neilsen of Vital Cycles begins this weekend! Join Lydia and Anne as they explore the use of permaculture to design landscapes that work with nature — concepts that can also apply to individuals and organizations.
This course lets you develop a broad understanding of permaculture and design that uses whole systems thinking, which looks at how everything works together as a part of a larger whole. This can apply to the environment, our internal state of being and our organizations and social systems. In this PINA-recognized Permaculture Design Certificate course, participants learn a standard 72-hour permaculture curriculum toward certification that is recognized around the world. Participants will also gain hands-on experience in designing and transforming a local landscape using design principles and incorporating the use of captured rainwater and greywater systems. The class is offered in partnership with Benicia Adult Education.
