Registration announced for Summer 2012 session of the Urban PDC in San Francisco. The course begins on June 27th.

This training offers the opportunity to develop professional skills and provides valuable education to enhance your current career or prepare you for your next venture or vocation. It is one of the few permaculture design trainings that match the schedule and tuition to the busy lives of urban professionals and full-time students.

There are many other wonderful PDC trainings in the region, but If you don't have time to take two weeks off and would prefer to learn permaculture skills in the city that you live in and work on designs that can be implemented in your city (and learn design principles and methods that can be applied anywhere), then this might be the permaculture certificate training for you.

Through a mix of classroom discussion time, small group work and hands-on activities, we will explore methods of designing and establishing regenerative communities and economies. We visit and participate at several permaculture projects here in San Francisco and the Bay Area, observing and interacting with Permaculture principles in practice.

Every PDC has a group project and we have a great selection of projects to pick from or you can bring your own ideas. These projects all have real potential to be implemented and many of our student designs have gone on to be real projects. We teach you the real skills needed to design and get these projects going, once your done with the class, the finished design you made can be put into action.

The course begins on June 27th, please see our website for all the dates. Our schedule is designed to fit into a busy urban work/school schedule while still leaving some time for you life on the weekend.
