Gaia Ashram together with NextGENOA and flowful will hold a Permaculture Design Certificate (PDC) Course starting March 31 till April 18. This PDC course is guided by Bill Mollison’s 72-hour curriculum and David Holmgren’s 7 domains of permaculture action. This 17-days course is well-balanced between theory and hands-on; ensuring that knowledge and experience can turn into wisdom. In a community-based setting, we will combine theory sessions and real-life experiences with a good portion of hands-on work.

Facilitator team

For this PDC we created a diverse group of facilitators from different countries, gender, and ages to embrace the diversity in permaculture. The three hosting facilitators gained experience in urban, rural, landbased and social permaculture in different parts of the world and started their permaculture journey for different reasons. Now they all live as residents at Gaia Ashram. Being part of the Gaia community and implementing different permaculture projects will open great ways of showcasing the magic of permaculture everywhere on the land.
