Permaculture Design Course
COVID Update: We will not be running any in person courses or workshops while COVID is an active threat. We look forward to when we can once again welcome all those who are interested in learning with us to do so. Hopefully that's in 2022.
The most common format of a permaculture design certificate is a two-week, 72-hour course. While adequate to cover the required material, this format limits time for hands-on learning and leaves little chance to catch one’s breath or integrate the material covered. Manitoulin Permaculture’s extended PDC is designed to give more time for: observing through the seasons, hands-on learning, Q & A, going further with the subject material and connecting with others.
This includes communal meals, wifi access, and tent camping on the property. Indoor accommodations may be provided at additional cost. Tuition does not include transportation.
Manitoulin Island – Mnidoo Mnising in the Anishnaabeg language – is the largest freshwater island in the world. Manitoulin Permaculture is 12km outside of Little Current, the island’s largest town.
May – September
We meet one weekend each month. Each weekend begins Friday at 1pm and ends Sunday at 3pm. Attendance is mandatory every weekend if you wish to receive a permaculture design certificate.
Justin Tilson and Rachael Neally will be your primary instructors joined by various local experts in Animal Husbandry, Natural Building, Renewable Energy, and All Season Growing.
