Course Summary

This Permaculture Design Certification Course builds on the standard 72-hour PDC curriculum with special attention on the design process, site assessment skills and personal sustainability.

Studying permaculture at Rancho Sol y Mar, a working sustainable ranch and retreat center, offers you the opportunity to learn from and interact with mature, existing regenerative living systems AND help design and build new systems using permaculture strategies and techniques. 

Course Description

This Permaculture Design Course will include the standard 72-hour permaculture design curriculum based upon the Mollison and Holmgren ideas and design philosophies published in The Permaculture Designer’s Manual, as well as be a nourishing retreat and hands-on immersion experience of sustainable ecovillage living. 

In addition to the standard permaculture design certification curriculum, we recognize permaculture as an expanding, holistic design philosophy encompassing many fields. Accordingly, this permaculture design course will include and integrate additional content and activities such as nature awareness, indigenous wisdom, embodiment practices, inner work, group process, ecovillage design, hands-on, and more. With a focus on tending the inner, outer, and community landscapes... course participants will work with each other and local community residents on tangible design project scenarios to implement positive transformation within themselves and in the local community.
