Course Overview

Grow the Revolution and Develop Individual & Community Resilience

Climate change is increasing. Toxic GMO food is increasing. Lifestyle related deaths and chronic disease is increasing. Top soil, water quality and biodiversity are all decreasing rapidly. Investing quality time and energy in knowledge of how to become self sufficient, how to create healthy living soil and how to grow nutrient dense organic food is a wise choice and only just a small part of this broad, in-depth and practical hands on course. Looking to change careers, look no further!!

The Urban Permaculture Design Course exists to teach students how to observe, analyze, and design sustainable and self-sufficient environments within the urban setting in any climate around the globe. By learning the ethics, principles, skills, and methodologies of permaculture design, you will develop a deeper, more holistic understanding of the urban environment around you. This course covers 75% of the theory taught in a PDC (Permaculture Design Course).

Vital Permaculture themes such as soil creation, waste and water management, gardening, nutrition, urban growing systems and more will be covered. While students definitely walk away with a breadth of knowledge, this practical course doesn’t end in the classroom. The theoretical portion of this course is supported by several hands-on activities to deepen your understanding of urban permaculture and its many applications.

The Urban Permaculture Design Course will also give you the opportunity to work on actual designs, preparing you to bring your newfound skills into your work and life. The guiding ethics of Earth Care, People Care, and Fair Share will be reinforced by important related topics, such as Sustainable Economics, Community Living & Relationships and the detrimental impact of industrial food upon the human body – giving you the knowledge, skills, and confidence to begin designing sustainable ecosystems in your own urban climate.

This comprehensive course is appropriately set in the old town of Chiang Mai in an Urban setting. We will meet on day 1 at 9.30am in the cafe of Green Tiger. Food and accommodation is not included in the course.
