Is it time for you to try a Permaculture Design Course (PDC)? Are you wondering what a PDC actually covers? Well, read on, and find out about our limited offer for Aranya’s course at The Sustainability Centre and begin your journey into a world of Earthcare, Peoplecare and Fair Shares.

Do you want to learn more about sustainable living and permaculture design?

Well we have a great offer for you!

If you sign up to Aranya's PDC before Friday 19th September 2014 Permanent Publications will send you a FREE copy of Edible Cities: Urban Permaculture for Gardens, Balconies, Rooftops and Beyond, (RRP £14.95).

Aranya's PDC is packed full of permaculture knowledge from forest gardens and vegetable growing to learning from your surroundings and how to design with nature.

Guest teachers include Ben Law and Maddy and Tim Harland. A day will be spent in Ben's woodland, exploring how permaculture is applied to forestry and a day in Maddy and Tim's forest garden, an example of permaculture design on chalk with vegetables, fruits, nuts and wildlife all intermixed.

The course is run from The Sustainability Centre in Hampshire, with stunning views over Portsmouth and the Solent from the South Downs Way. The centre is also home to Permaculture magazine so you'll get to meet the team here too!

Every aspect of the course incorporates sustainable living and permaculture, providing the perfect setting to learn and meet like minded people. A friend from a PDC is a friend for life!

You will learn:

  • Earthcare - growing fruit trees, kitchen & urban gardening (designing, planting tips, seed saving), soil conservation, etc. 

  • Peoplecare - Appling permaculture to your own life, community projects, engaging with others

  • Fair Shares - sustainable economies, buying local
