About the current PDC

Edinburgh PDC 2020

The Edinburgh PDC 2020 runs over 6 weekends, starting in January. Accredited by the Permaculture Association, this full Permaculture Design course (PDC) 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.

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. Read more in the course information document.

Not sure about committing to the full PDC? Consider joining us for Module 1, which runs also as a stand-alone Introduction to Permaculture.

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

Venue: The course is based primarily at the Montessori Arts School, Liberton Brae, in south Edinburgh. The classroom is large and bright, and because of the school’s location on the edge of the city, there’s good access to natural spaces.  Module 5 will be held outside Edinburgh (see course info document).
