    The permaculture design course, or PDC, is an intensive 72-hour internationally recognized permaculture certification. It's designed to give participants the inspiration and knowledge they need to make a positive change in the world, needed now more than ever. It will give you the skills necessary to design your home/yard/landscape into an ecologically-resilient edible system, and for some, it could be the first stepping stone to a permaculture career in design, education, consulting, or regenerative farming.
    This course will be offered as a weekend course designed for local residents who don't have time to take an intensive (and expensive) two-week PDC. This course will be mostly classroom-based but will also include hands-on components. It will go through the basics of permaculture design relating to different climates, energy, natural building, the global climate, social systems, and more. The course curriculum includes:
    ​​
    how permaculture started and what it means
    philosophies and ethics of permaculture
    permaculture design principles and how to apply them
    methods of design and how to apply design strategies
    how to mimic natural systems to create better design
    climatic factors and strategies, covering all major climates
    trees, forests, and forest gardening
    water: conserving, collecting, reusing in your design
    soil: learn the basics of soil chemistry and biology and how to work with the soil food web to build new soils and repair degraded land
    earthworks: shaping the land to maximize the benefits of your natural resources
    ecological sanitation systems: turing waste into a valuable resource
    aquaculture and aquaponics
    animal systems: the importance of animals in food systems and the symbiotic relationship between plants and animals
    natural building: how to build beautiful, inexpensive, resilient structures using available natural resources
    appriopriate technology: home-scale biogas, solar cookers, rocket stoves, etc.
    alternative systems: alternative economic systems, food sovereignty, community living
    permaculture as a tool for sustainable development: using permaculture where it's needed most in underveloped countries lacking basic sanitation and infrastructure

    The final part of the course will focus on co-creating a viable real-world design for a site that could include gardens, fruit trees, greywater systems, rainwater catchment, food forests, natural building projects, and more. Participants will have the opportunity to design their own site or a site affiliated with a project they are involved in as part of this final design project.​
    Course Format
    Classes will be held on Saturday and Sunday on alternating weekends from 9 am - 5 pm over an 11 week period at Hundred Fruit Farm in Buckingham, PA. Weekends with classes will include Feb 11-12, Feb 25-26, March 11-12, March 25-26, April 8-9, and April 22-23. Students are expected to eat breakfast and dinner before and after class. Lunches will be potluck style with each student bringing a dish and sharing with the group. Hundred Fruit Farm will also make a salad every lunch and provide tea, coffee, and snacks for breaks.
    Cost

    The cost of the course is $575 per person, or $500 for early bird registrations before Jan 15. Most PDCs cost anywhere from $1000 to $2500. Why is ours cheaper? By keeping this as a course for commuters and local residents, we don't need to factor in the cost of housing and meals into the course, which keeps costs down significantly. Even with the relatively lower cost of the course, if you are still struggling to afford the tuition, you can try fundraising your tuition on WeTheTrees, a permaculture crowdsourcing website designed specifically for this purpose.

    Who is this course for?

    This course is aimed at anyone who wants to live a more sustainable lifestyle, bring more meaning into their lives, build a stronger community, and/or work towards an ecologically responsible future. This course is also ideal for backyard gardeners, homeowners, landscapers and landscape designers, teachers/educators, farmers, community organizers, nonprofit workers, orchardists, horticulturalists, students, etc.

    Course Instructors

    The course will be facilitated and taught by Adam Dusen, permaculture designer, farmer, and founder of Hundred Fruit Farm. Adam previously helped teach many permaculture courses at the Panya Project in Thailand and served as a Permaculture Farm Manager and Educator at The Island School in The Bahamas. Check out Adam's full bio here. We also plan on featuring other qualified permaculturists in the region as guest teachers for some classes.

    Do I have to commute?

    This course is designed for people who live close enough that they can travel to and from class each day. Some people who live a little further may find that it makes more sense for them to stay somewhere locally Saturday nights to cut down on travel time. We are happy to suggest nearby accommodation for students who wish to do this, but we do not yet have the facilities to host students ourselves on the farm.

    How far is the farm from Philadelphia?

    Depending on where you're coming from in Philly, our farm is about 45 minutes to 1 hour away.

    How do I register?

    To register and secure your place in the course, or if you have any questions about the course, please email hundredfruitfarm@gmail.com. More information about the course can also be found on our website at hundredfruitfarm.com/winter-pdc All registrations must include a 10% deposit, and any registrations made before January 15, 2017 qualify for a $75 Early Bird discount. Deposits are non-refundable unless the course is cancelled due to low enrollment, in which case you will be fully refunded for any desposits made.

    Join us for three days of ecovillage immersion, community inspiration and deep connection during the 3rd Annual...Youth Ecovillage SummitJune 9th - 12th, 2016La Cité Ecologique in Quebec, Canada
    >>> Early-Bird Registration now until Thursday, May 5th <<<Learn More at http://www.nextgenna.org/youth-ecovillage-summit-2016.htmlFacebook Event Page: https://www.facebook.com/events/1004761146283422/
    The Summit is designed for community leaders, students, sustainability enthusiasts, and those seeking to live a more connected and conscious life.
    Here is some of what you can look forward to:
    Ecovillage Immersion
    This year’s gathering will be held at La Cité Ecologique, in Quebec, Canada. Founded over 30 years ago, this "Green City" is the largest ecovillage in Canada, surrounded by picturesque rolling hills near the quaint village of Ham-Nord, two hours outside of both Montreal and Quebec City. With its origins as a summer camp for children, the community has developed its own school for village youth. Sustainability is a strong value at La Cité, a community that boosts several thriving ecologically-minded businesses and acres of organic food gardens. For three days we will immerse ourselves in life at La Cité, sharing meals and volunteering on the land alongside residents. At the same time we will explore the broader concept of ecovillages as a model for sustainability education. The YES curriculum follows the model of Gaia Education, covering an integrated study in the four dimensions of sustainability: the ecological, social, economic, and cultural (or worldview). We use these focus areas as the launching point for dynamic discussion, activities, and build projects that teach us how we can create a brighter future for humanity.
    Community Inspiration
    Whether you are interested in forming your own intentional community someday or want to create more cooperative culture were you are living right now, ecovillages have something to teach everyone. Join us on a deep dive into learning about community building tools, communication skills, and personal development journeys. We can make big changes happen when we work together! But the first step is learning how.... Become inspired by ecovillage projects around the world and learn how you can join this exciting movement! Experiential workshops and sacred ceremonies will be lead by experienced facilitators. (Full event schedule and facilitator bios are coming soon!)
    Deep Connection
    Over the last three years, the Youth Ecovillage Summit has brought together passionate young people from around the world. During our three days together, you will have the opportunity to form life-long friendships with fellow changemakers. Connect with each other around the bonfire, during workshops, in the gardens and wherever else you may wander! We make time during the event to hear each other’s stories and projects, as well as encourage networks of support to last long after our three days together. Come ready to share your big idea to receive valuable feedback and coaching!
