Urban Permaculture Design Course: Co-Creating Regenerative Futures for The City, and Beyond

(PDC) Permaculture Design Course
Summary information

This exciting new course will be offered through 100 hours of teaching and learning over two weeks this spring. We will start with permaculture principles and ethics, moving into design methodologies, which includes observation skills. We will further create a foundation with the earth and life sciences, and journey through natural and cultivated ecologies. For our home systems, we will look at natural building, renewable energy systems, biological waste treatment systems, and food storage. Beyond individual homes, we will explore various forms of sustainable communities, which include green economics and cultural systems. Students will be supported in their personal and professional paths, with quality mentorship. We will be developing skills as permaculture designers throughout the course, which will culminate in a final wholistic design project. Field trips and locations will showcase what Toronto is doing on the eco-front. There will be some evening sessions, which may be open to people not on the full course.
