Taught by Starhawk and Alfred Decker

12P Permaculture Design is thrilled to invite you to a two-week Permaculture Design Course (PDC), offering the internationally-recognised 72-hour permaculture curriculum with an additional focus on social permaculture, organizing tools, and spirit. Come and share a life-changing experience with an intercultural mix of participants!

This is an intensive course combining theory with practical hands-on learning. Completion of the course earns participants a Permaculture Design Certificate – the foundation for further permaculture work and study and a prerequisite for the Diploma in Permaculture Design. Participants will learn Permaculture design principles & techniques. The course includes lectures, discussions, hands-on learning, slideshows, and design projects. We will examine the underlying assumptions of the current culture of consumerism and economic globalisation, and encourage exploration of ways to contribute to the emergence of a culture of sustainability, compassion and equity. The PDC covers a broad range of subjects to provide a holistic overview of Permaculture systems and sustainable living.

Some of the topics / themes to be covered are:

  • Evidence for change & the ethics of sustainability

Location:

Vidàlia is a community and a “cooperativa integral” – a cooperative developed to cover the housing, work, and food needs of its members. Located in an old textile factory an hour inland from Barcelona, the site is a village, inspired by the garden city movement, originally built for the workers and now being regenerated as a community. Vidàlia offers ample event and workshop spaces, 3 ha. of agricultural fields, and the enormous old factory itself.

 

 

 

 

 

Vidàlia is located alongside the second largest river in Catalunya, surrounded by forests and fields, and has a bus stop just outside the property that provides fast public transport to the city. We have the intention to develop Vidàlia as a permaculture and regenerative agriculture demonstration site, and your participation in this course will help us to grow. More info about Vidàlia
