Come live with us in the jungles of Ecuador and learn the fundamentals of Permaculture! This 12 day course will cover a variety of fundamental topics from the permaculture design course certification.
This is an amazing opportunity to get a very hands-on experience as many of these systems will be established in this course for the first time on this new emerging permaculture farm! You will experience the permaculture practices already in place: plant propagation, eco-toilets and composting, water catchment, farm-to-table cuisine, and living in a secluded jungle oasis!
Upon completion, you will receive your Permaculture Design Certificate and be fully equipped to do your part in a global movement to live in a better way! PDC grads go on to design their own land projects, teach the permaculture principles and ethics, fund Eco-communities, redesign their businesses, and so much more!
When starting an agricultural project with a regenerative and sustainable approach, it is important to have a long-term design to visualize the intelligent and efficient implementation of the project, saving energy and external inputs.
Permacultural design allows you to adapt your project to the ecosystem or bioregion where you want to implement it without negatively impacting the flora and fauna of the site.
