72+ HOUR PERMACULTURE DESIGN CERTIFICATION

This 2-week intensive course goes above and beyond the full 72 hour curriculum as laid out by the Permaculture Research Institute of Australia’s PDC curriculum and follows Bill Mollison’s Designer’s Manual.


This year we are so excited to collaborate with IMAP! The Mesoamerican Permaculture Institute (Instituto Mesoamericano de Permacultura) is a non-profit organization based in Guatemala. It was founded in 2000 by a group of local people concerned with the serious environmental, social and cultural problems affecting the nation. They established an ecological education center to promote permaculture techniques, local biodiversity conservation, production of organic food, and a seed bank that strives to reconstruct the Mayan seed heritage.

Incorporating a combination of field trips, work experience, numerous guest facilitators, and design practicals, this course provides participants with much more than the internationally recognized Permaculture Design Certificate. It is a foundational experience for a new way to see the world. Learn how to capture energy, become a producer, and respect and encourage diversity. There is a special focus on indigenous knowledge and how permaculture relates to this well-established world view. Students will gain the benefit of exposure to two different sites, with the first week of the PDC taking place at the Meso-American Institute of Permaculture, and the second at Atitlan Organics
