The Denver Permaculture Guild is excited to announce Denver’s 9th annual Permaculture Design Course! Permaculture is a revolutionary design science that applies nature’s patterns to human structures, and the Permaculture Design Course has trained thousands of changemakers around the world in its theory and practice. Our 112-hour course includes the core 72-hour internationally certified curriculum as well as a number of detailed breakout sessions and regionally appropriate resources.
The Denver PDC will be held starting in the spring of 2020. The course location will alternate between several Denver-area locations. A range of optional workshops, events, and field trips may happen between each class.
Through an engaging mix of lecture, hands-on group activities, and real-world design projects, participants will gain a comprehensive understanding of ecological thinking and how to apply it in a variety of contexts. Please see the course syllabus for more details.
The course is facilitated by experienced practitioners and teachers: Creighton Hofeditz and Asia Dorsey serve as the core organizers and facilitators, and they are joined by a series of guest lecturers (usually 2-3 per weekend). Adam Brock and Ainslie O’Neil are two other core facilitators. You can check out their backgrounds their bios and see a list of past guests on the facilitators page.
The Denver PDC is recommended for design professionals, urban farmers, community organizers, foodies, city planners, green entrepreneurs, homeowners, and anybody seeking a comprehensive framework for sustainable change.
In past years, course tuition has been $1350, with discounts for early registration and for DPG Members. A limited number of scholarship positions are available.
