The Edinburgh PDC 2019 runs over 6 weekends from January to June, and is accredited by the Permaculture Association. This full Permaculture Design course develops an understanding of permaculture ethics, principles, design processes and implementation techniques. It’s your first step on what we hope will become a lifelong permaculture journey.

Venue: The course will primarily be based at Bridgend Farmhouse, part of a community owned charitable organisation in the south of Edinburgh. There are workshop spaces dedicated to arts & crafts and bike repairs, a community café, and the surrounding land is developed for food growing and community gardening.

Our classes are interactive, relaxed and fun, with a good mix of information sessions, hands-on practical work, observation opportunities, creative project work and participatory ideas exchange.  We welcome people of all levels of experience and backgrounds: come prepared to both learn and share.

About the team: The course is led by three main teachers, James, Nenya and Jenny. There will also be feature sessions with guest teachers – practitioners, designers and specialists in their area.
