20th Maine Permaculture Design Course returns to Unity in May
The Resilience Hub and Midcoast Permaculture Design are teaming up again to offer the internationally recognized Permaculture Design Certification (PDC) course. This will be the 20th course the Resilience Hub has offered and will be returning to the Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association’s (MOFGA's) beautiful Common Ground Fair campus in Unity. The course will convene over a series of 5 weekends from May through August.
Permaculture is a holistic system of ecological design for regenerative land use and sustainable living. It’s about the design of healthy landscapes that produce an abundance of food, fuel, fiber and medicine for people, wildlife, and livestock. This 100-hour certification program will feature workshops, films, lectures, hands-on skill sharing, site visits and a practicum with a live client.
"Permaculture can be used to design homes, farms, gardens, parks and communities. We address design-based solutions to many challenges of the day, while teaching to the eyes, ears, hands and heart,” says Jesse Labbe-Watson of Midcoast Permaculture Design in Rockland.
The Maine PDC convenes the weekend of May 18-19 at the MOFGA fairgrounds in Unity and will continue over 5 weekends: May 18-19, June 29-30, July 12-14 and 26-28, and August 23-25. Sliding scale tuition and solidarity pricing are available. Tuition range is $1150-1575. To learn more and register visit maine-pdc.com.
