Redesign your property, learn to live healthier, more sustainably and create abundance in your life. This program enables you to create a complete permaculture design for your own property, earn your internationally-standard Permaculture Design Certificate and much more. Just imagine what your home will look like with permaculture!
You are getting access to online video lecture presentations filmed from two in-person Permaculture Design Courses that guide you through the origins, development and application of permaculture – the holistic design system that works in harmony with nature to create productive and sustainable systems for living.
Presented by Larry Korn, one of the country’s leading authorities on permaculture, and other guest instructors, these videos are based on the key textbook in permaculture: “Permaculture: A Designer’s Manual” by one of the founders of the movement, Bill Mollison. Each lecture comes with transcripts and quizzes to re-enforce your learning each step of the way.
The presentations cover everything from the principles at the heart of permaculture and its origins in ancient methods of cultivation, to the ways it can be used in the modern world – in gardens, homes, farms and towns – in order to grow organic food, protect the wilderness, use energy responsibly, and promote community engagement and cooperation.
You are also getting access to our animated online-only 12 hour Regenerative Ecological Permaculture Design course – keep reading more about that below in the bonuses section.
The second part of the course allows you to put your knowledge into practice. It moves the theory of permaculture into real-life application.
You choose a site that you want to create a permaculture design for. This could be your property or a public space. Previous students have designed everything from a permaculture cemetery to a cooperative grocery store, and of course many, many personal properties and homes. Then, you create a project plan about how you would apply the principles of permaculture “on the ground”.
In close consultation with your dedicated advisor you will record observations and data, trial possibilities for the site, and create a final overall plan that could be used to implement permaculture on the site. You will create a graphical design of the physical site and write a detailed description of the project – its aims, its stakeholders, and its projected benefits.
So you have three steps to completing the Permaculture Design Mastery Program and earning your internationally-standard Permaculture Design Certification:
Step 1: Review the video lectures and the animated content alongside reading the eBook to gain an understanding of the theory and practice of permaculture
Step 2: Complete the plan for a design project – which is also a great opportunity to start your professional design portfolio. This is also your opportunity to re-design your home and property with permaculture! Just imagine what your home will feel like once you’ve done it all!
Step 3: Pass a multiple-choice exam (with a pass grade of 70 percent). The video lectures and the animated content thoroughly prepares you for the examination, and you can re-take the examination every couple of days with different questions until you pass.
Here is what the course includes:
On successful completion of the course you’ll receive your internationally recognized certification and be able to call yourself a Permaculture Designer!
You will be able to transform your property into a sustainable, productive system that gives you and your family food and pleasure – and saves you money. Passing this course will give you the internationally recognized qualification that allows you to start a business as a permaculture designer, or to lead community projects around permaculture.
The skills that you learn in this course have an endless variety of applications. After all, sustainable living is one of the fastest growing sectors – socially and economically – in the country.
