A permaculture design course (PDC) is an educational program that provides participants with the knowledge and skills to design sustainable and regenerative systems based on the principles of permaculture. Permaculture is a design philosophy that seeks to mimic natural ecosystems to create harmonious and productive landscapes while minimizing inputs of energy, water, and resources. A PDC typically covers topics such as principles and ethics of permaculture, ecological design principles, soil management, water harvesting, sustainable agriculture, food forests, renewable energy systems, natural building techniques, and community resilience. Participants in a PDC engage in hands-on activities, design exercises, site visits, and group projects to gain practical experience in applying permaculture principles to real-world situations. Upon completion of a PDC, participants are equipped with the knowledge and confidence to design and implement sustainable systems in their own homes, gardens, communities, and beyond.
