Permaculture Design Certification Course
SOIL is currently not offering a Permaculture Design Course (PDC) at Earthaven Ecovillage. For students interested in taking a PDC in the greater Asheville area, we highly recommend the classes offered by our partners at Wild Abundance. Their instructor team, led by Natalie Bogwalker, provides two different paths to earning the PDC:
- Traditional Permaculture Design Course: This traditional 11-day PDC focuses on assimilating permaculture principles and design strategies into the rich cultural and ecological elements of the South.
- Earthskills and Permaculture Immersion — On one three-day weekend a month from April through November, participants cover not only the internationally recognized PDC curriculum, but also gain experience in related skills such as wild food foraging, natural building, and primitive firemaking.
