Visiting regenerative sites with a veteran permaculture designer as the tour guide can be a rich and deep experience. See the elements of permaculture in action while having them explained, and getting your questions answered about them. We will tour three different regenerative sites in Pinellas County to get a good overview of what is being done in our area to create sustainable landscapes and human systems.
This is Grow Permaculture’s 17th internationally recognized Permaculture Design Course, based on Bill Mollison’s work. This course will unfold 1 weekend per month over five months, from Feb 18, 2017, to June 2017, held at Moccasin Lake Nature Preserve in Clearwater, FL. Carpools and housing may be available if you are coming from other parts of Florida, please check with us.
By cooperating with nature and her energies, we are able to design our lives, from backyard gardens and food forests to neighborhoods, farms or even cities to be more abundant, more sustainable, healthier, and more enjoyable. It is a cutting edge approach to living that helps both people and the environment. This course is life changing for many people.
February 18, 2017, from 9-noon
Unity Church of Clearwater - Community center

This will give a nice overview of the subject with some specific tools shared that you can use to create more abundance in your life. This workshop leads into our six month professional Permaculture Design Course, or a full weekend workshop that covers many more design skills.
Below you will find a schedule of the Spring PDC, and some of the highlights that we will cover for each weekend. We provide glossaries, outlines, additional written materials, self-testing material, videos and more, to assist you to access and absorb the information. Please note that there are sometimes changes in this line up based on needs of students/instructor availability (we have sometimes had surprise visits by veteran designers for instance).
