Fall 2021 PDC In the Shenandoah Valley - Details Coming Soon!
Permaculture is an ethically based design approach to creating sustainable human communities. Although rooted in agriculture, Permaculture design also touches on ecological restoration, community development, urban planning, energy systems, and architecture.
This Permaculture Design Course (PDC) is geared towards serious homesteading and profitable Permaculture farming in the Mid-Atlantic. This is an opportunity to learn Permaculture Design from professional farmers who are doing the work!
