We are happy to announce that we will be hosting a Permaculture Design Course next year here in Southern Utah! We are now offering an affordable EARLY BIRD RATE plus additional discounts.
WHAT IS A PERMACULTURE DESIGN CERTIFICATION COURSE?
Permaculture Design Certification (PDC) is a world-wide recognized course, training you to become a competent Permaculture designer of sustainable living environments & bountiful food systems.
True Nature Farm's 14-day hands-on intensive Permaculture Design Certification covers over 90 hours of practical experience and theoretical knowledge in natural farming, sustainable technologies, natural building and fostering a healthy community.
You will learn to design and apply natural principles to create stable and resilient systems that provide food, water, shelter and energy needs while regenerating ecology, community and economy.
WHAT IS PERMACULTURE?
Permaculture is a conscious integrated design system based on ecology and sustainability principles, used to create resource efficient and productive human environments, and reduce our footprint on the earth.
Permaculture provides a framework for consciously designed landscapes that mimic the patterns and relationships found in nature that provide diversity, stability, and resilience. These systems yield an abundance of shelter, water, energy, and food for the provision of local needs.
Permaculture uses both modern and traditional technologies & pragmatic solutions to meet today's challenges with a positive outlook, focusing on the solution rather than on the problem.
