THE COURSE: Format and Content
The course will be an 72 PLUS Hour Permaculture Design Certificate Course spread out over 21 days. The extra week will allow to us to develop a furthered rhythm of increased hands on including almost daily
organic gardening and associated lessons, exploring the inner and outer social landscape, and seeing the stunning local beaches and mountain forest of Sintra. It’s a great format for allowing students to digest the material fully with the hands on learnings integrating the knowledge through the body, and work thoroughly on our unique final design project and presentation at Terra Alta. The course will be certified through TreeYo Permaculture as we are guided by Bill Mollison’s curriculum that comprises the 14 chapters of his book “Permaculture: A Designer’s Manual”. It also guides our TreeYo EDU project which is an Online handbook for the PDC which reflects these chapters plus the other material covered in the course like natural building and fermentation. This online resource is an invaluable tool to reference after our courses and helps with joining in on our extended mentoring process and the TreeYo network itself.
