PDC Learning Outcomes – free download

Nick just finished up co-teaching a Permaculture Teacher Training course with Rowe Morrow on Sunday, which was by all accounts an enlightening 7 days of how the heck to communicate core design concepts to a wide range of different types of learners.

Amongst the varied and wonderful students present was Jasmine Whyte from communicatecreative, who produced this simple and gorgeous diagram of PDC (Permaculture Design Certificate) outcomes, which we’d like to share with you…¬† Continue reading

Two weeks of Urban Permaculture, in pictures…

Right now Nick’s in the the middle of teaching Milkwood Permaculture’s annual summer Urban Permaculture Design Certificate in Sydney, which is always a fabulous two weeks. This year, we have the wonderful Cathy X as one of the students, and she’s documenting the process in pictures.

I love this course. It’s so similar, yet so different to the PDCs we run at Milkwood Farm – same core curriculum, principles and Nick’s fabulous + infectious energy, but realized in the middle of the city, instead of way out in the backwoods. And once again we’re blessed to have an awesome group of students to work with for 2 weeks. Continue reading

Urban dispatches from the undergrowth

lucas and bon scott

Lucas Ihlein. And Bon Scott.

We are very pleased to announce that the esteemed Sydney blogger and artist, Lucas Ilhlein, will be keeping a weekly diary of the ongoing process that will be our part-time Urban Permaculture Design Course in Sydney this Winter, starting May 29th. Lucas will be attending our course as a student and will lend his unique perspective to a summation of the class (as he understood it) on a weekly basis.

As the course progresses, from the end of May until mid August this year, i imagine we’ll all get a pretty clear idea of what a Permaculture Design Course involves and also how it intersects with the life of an inner-city artist who lives in a flat but dreams of reviving city-wide goat keeping, vegetable swaps and edible footpaths.

Comrade Ilhlein will be providing these urban dispatches at his blog Bilateral. Bring on the urban permaculture.
