The Eldenbridge Institute team is looking forward to teaching another Permaculture Design Certification course this Fall starting August 27th. Permaculture is a design science that focuses on creating sustainable and regenerative systems, so if you are looking for an introduction to the principles and practices of sustainable design, this is the class to start with.
The course will be taught over a series of six alternating weekends and consists of over 72 hours of lecture, hands-on training, and a design project. If you are interested in the course, visit our event page for more information, including what some of our students from last year had to say about the course.
We are also excited to announce that the Eldenbridge Institute is now accepting applications for a full scholarship to be awarded to an outstanding high school student for the 2016 PDC. If you know a high school student (upcoming Junior or Senior) who shows interest and potential in Permaculture design, please let them know about our Fall 2016 PDC Student Scholarship. We are offering one scholarship which covers the entire cost of the PDC. The application can be found and completed online here. The deadline for applying is August 7th and we will be announcing the finalists for the scholarship before August 14th. We are looking forward to meeting all our finalists for an in-person interview to help us decide who will be the best candidate to join us for this year’s PDC.
