Kelowna Community Permaculture Design Certificate Course

🌷There is something special about sitting in a circle.🌷
At our last #permaculturekelowna meetup I got to meet a few of the students that will be participating in Kelowna's first PDC course... starting tomorrow!!! 🌻
After so much preparation and planning, I can't believe it's actually happening! I'm so excited to share this journey with the other teachers, students, volunteers, and everyone else who is a part of this project! #kelownacommunitypdc

Permaculture Women’s Guild Online PDC & Advanced Certificate in Social Systems Design

How am I involved?

I was selected to prepare a module focusing on Reimagining Economic Systems. In this module, you will start to apply permaculture wisdom to the topic of economics. We will explore case studies of community currencies and the degrowth movement to help you bring more abundance into your life and the lives of those around you. If you'd like a little sneak peak into that, please read my recent blog post published on Medium's Permaculture Women Magazine.

I am honoured to be part of a global community of mothers, sisters, healers, activists, gardeners, problem solvers, and eco-feminists, 40 of whom have co-crafted an accessible, comprehensive online permaculture course!

The teachers of this course hail from 13 countries around the world and are offering a course that goes far beyond the standard 72-hour PDC.  We’re training a new generation of permaculture designers with the skills they need to not only design landscapes and create closed-loop homestead systems, but also to manifest personal, cultural and ecological abundance. The course was developed by women and enrolment is open for all genders.

Designed to Support Women's Permaculture Livelihoods

This course was developed by ecofeminist author and activist Heather Jo Flores in an attempt to lift up women's voices in the permaculture field and make livelihoods in permaculture more accessible to women. 

If you choose to sign up for this course and list my name under the “How Did You Hear About This Course?” question on the sign up form, then you are helping to ensure that I am paid fairly for the time that I invested in my module. Your will also get 3 hours of one-to-one design review time with me either in person (if you are located in the Kelowna, BC area) or via Skype/e-mail.

How Much?

To ensure fair compensation for teachers and administrators who have worked and continue to work tirelessly on this project, we are currently offering the course on a sliding scale starting at $750 USD or  $995 CAD (approx.) We are currently offering the following discounts:

  • $150 off regular price for the 2019 Summer Solstice *Jun 20-22 ONLY*
