Permaculture Design Course

Updated: Nov 27, 2022

Siskiyou Permaculture is offering a Permaculture Design Course (PDC) beginning February 26, 2022 meeting every other weekend until May 8th. It meets in the spacious community room at the Jackson Wellsprings, 2253 OR-99 N, Ashland, OR 97520, allowing for some physical distancing.

This 72-hour certificate course is based on a curriculum developed by Australian founders, Bill Mollison and David Holmgren, with lots of local stories and examples from our Southern Oregon bioregions. Instructors Hazel Ward, Melanie Mindlin and Karen Taylor have over 60 years of combined experience teaching, consulting and coaching people on the principles and practices of Permaculture, and are passionate about sharing their knowledge. They will be joined by guest teachers, Lion Waxman, Dan Wahpepah, and Rhianna Simes.

Permaculture is a whole systems design philosophy used for the creation of regenerative human habitats and food production systems. It has been applied worldwide at every level, from the inner city to urban and suburban developments, homesteading and agriculture to community planning and national policy.

Permaculture offers tangible solutions to the many pressing ecological issues of our time, such as how to sustainably meet the basic needs of food, water, energy, and shelter, how to vitalize our communities and restore our watersheds. It is both a land use ethic and community building movement which strives for the integration of human dwellings, energy systems, micro-climate, horticulture, micro livestock and animals, soils, and water into stable, productive systems.

The course price is $800. Register here.
