Advanced Permaculture Design Course

August 19 - 26. 2017

At the Bullock's 30+ year old Permaculture Homestead, Orcas Island, WA

Instructors: Douglas Bullock, Sam Bullock, Dave Boehnlein, & Paul Kearsley

Description: Do you want to gain more permaculture design experience? This 6-day Advanced Design Course is an excellent follow-up to a Permaculture Design Course. Join the team of Terra Phoenix Design and the Bullock's Permaculture Homestead while we practice together and share what we've learned over the years.

During this course you can expect to run through the design process several times to build competence and confidence. Each design will feature a new and different context to help drive home the patterns to details approach we advocate. In addition to working on a wide variety of designs we will also have "choose-your-own-adventure" sessions where you select an educational experience that matches your specific interests. Examples of sessions include: software for design, the business end of running a design consultancy, plant species deep-dive, landscape graphics primer, etc. We will also offer topic specific design sessions on major components that are necessary for almost any design (i.e. water systems, workshops, nurseries, etc.). Finally, we will walk you through projects we have worked on over the years so you can see what finished designs look like and how to assemble a quality package of deliverables for your client.

This advanced course will jump in assuming you are familiar with the basic permaculture concepts and ideas.  We will not be rehashing the permaculture design course basics, therefore, you may want to brush up on the foundational concepts and vocabulary etc. before you come.

Come join a professional team on an outstanding site for a week of in-depth skill development.

Course Tuition: $1200 ($1100 if paid in full by May 1st, 2017); includes delicious, mostly organic meals, materials, and certificate of completion. Camping space is provided. A $250 nonrefundable deposit is required with course registration, with the remainder due on or before July 15, 2017. Course is limited to 30 participants.
