Come and join the Permaculture Design Certificate Course at SAE LAO. Taught by Howard Story of WWOOF Thailand, the Permaculture Design Certificate (PDC) course is an internationally-recognized, 72-hour course resulting in a Permaculture Design Certificate. It provides an introduction to permaculture design as set forth by movement founder Bill Mollison and David Holmgren.
The PDC serves as foundation for further permaculture work and study and is a prerequisite for the Diploma in Permaculture Design, offered through The Permaculture Institute Asia. Credit for this course is now accepted by a growing number of universities around the world.
To date, thousands of permaculture designers worldwide have been certified through this course, and now comprise a global network of educators, ecological activists who influence major corporations, individuals creating new business alternatives and groups of committed people working together to change the way we view and design into our landscapes.
The course covers sustainable living systems for a wide variety of landscapes and climates. It includes the application of permaculture ethics and principles to food production, home design, construction, energy conservation and generation, and explores alternative economic structures and legal strategies supporting permaculture solutions.
The Curriculum is based on all subjects in: "PERMACULTURE: A Designers’’ - Manual by Bill Mollison. Students are invited to bring details of their own sites or potential sites to consider during the course.
Regular tuition fee for the 72-hour certified PDC is 600 Euro, with an early-bird discount of 100 Euro for full payments prior to November 30, 2016. We also offer an NGO special price* of 480 Euro.

The number of participants is limited to 20 people, first come first served.
