I get it.
Not everyone can attend a Permaculture Design Course in person.
Schedule’s clash. Locations are too far away and sometimes it just doesn’t work out.
When people ask:
“Should I take an in-person PDC on an online course?”
My answer is:
But if you are chomping at the bit for a permaculture education and can’t wait…
This is the PDC for you.
I’ve looked through Geoff Lawton’s PDC and it’s great. Good information, good community, a little heavy on the swale dogma but good context.
I’ve also looked through Oregon State University’s PDC and I was blown away at the level of student work, the to the point in-depth information that provided and the rigorous assignments and quizzes so you walk away KNOWING you know PERMACULTURE.
So I talked to the OSU folks and asked, “How about a discount for Permaculture BC followers?” And they said, “That’s a great idea.”
It’s not a huge discount BUT as one of the most accessible PDC’s I’ve seen at $800, a 5% discount drops the course to $760.
Not bad for your first PDC.
Did I say first?
Yup, I did.
As David Shaw said, “A PDC is a great place to start, but a terrible place to STOP.” Your first PDC lays the foundation for your second PDC where who knows you could offer to a Teaching Assistant for a reduced price in the course or a straight trade.
Now we come to the crux of why I think this course is a good start…
It gives you what you need to be introduced to the concepts in permaculture, start to make a difference today while laying a foundation for your permaculture efforts in the future.
Hope this helps folks.
Almost forgot, here’s the 5% discount code.
