Permadigm Initiative will be teaching a 72 hour Permaculture Design Course with Keys Native, Ashley Moore and invited speakers – hosted by Earth & Sea Farm on Upper Sugarloaf Key. Through hands on and classroom experiences, students will gain knowledge and skills in a broad array of subjects such as organic gardening, integrated pest management, natural building, sustainable technology, traditional ecological knowledge, mycology, bee keeping, water harvesting and conservation, design processes, social resiliency and more. This extended course is for aspiring or experienced gardeners, farmers, community organizers, land planners, builders and any active, engaged citizen seeking positive change.
Permaculture is the design and creation of ecological human habitats and food production systems based on the successful patterns exhibited in nature. It is a design method that has been applied worldwide at every level, from 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, energy and shelter, how to revitalize our communities and restore our watersheds. Permaculture explores both land use ethics and community building movements, merging for the harmonious integration of human dwellings, energy systems, microclimates, annual and perennial plants, animals, soils, and water into stable, productive and resilient communities.
The course price is $ 599 including a PDC Certificate. We hope you will join us to learn about how Permaculture can change your life and offer hope for our future.
