Permaculture design course

Regular (and not so regular) readers know that the 2013 permaculture design course I took changed my life - and it could change yours too. A new design course will start in June this year. If you've even thought about learning more about permaculture, read this, talk with me and let's see if it's a good fit for you!

MAPG’s PDC Training will be from Saturday, June 13th through Saturday morning June 20th, 2015.

It will be taking place at the Farley Center for Peace, Justice and Sustainabilitylocated at 2299 Spring Rose Road, Verona, 53593.

We will be having Classroom and at least one Hands-On Project on the property and then of course the big design project to culminate the whole experience.

We will be covering Permaculture Ethics, Principles, Patterns, Soil, Water, Energy, Natural Building, Systems, Food, Animals, Trees, Plants, Social Permaculture, Observation and more.

Lead Teacher will be Founder and Coordinator of MAPG, Kate Heiber-Cobb.  She received her PDC through Midwest Permaculture in Stelle, IL in November of 2007.  She received her Advanced Certificate through them in Custer, WI in the Summer of 2008 and received her Teacher’s Certificate with Peter Bane and Sandy Cruz in November of 2014 in MI.  She has trained in Radical Urban Sustainability Training, Transition Town, Placemaking, Art Of Hosting, and did trainings with Toby Hemenway and Brad Lancaster.  She also has trained in Watersheds with Osprey Orielle Lake and Grey Water with Penny Livingston in CA in 2012. She also teaches at Madison College and Olbrich Gardens and various other venues.  She co -taught two PDC’s at Kinstone Academy in 2013.

We will be having guest instructors Marian Farrior, Drew Carlson, Sean Gere and more to help give you a more diverse learning experience.  We will have a Tour mixed into it and lots of fun.  The first 3 years we collaborated with Midwest Permaculture to bring the PDC to the Madison Area and the last few years we have taken it on ourselves with a total of 98 people receiving certification over 6 years.

Cost is $950 with the option for payment plans if you register far enough in advance. Please contact Jean Schneider to register at with PDC in your subject line.

If you are hankering for a great training at a stunning location, this is it.
