Day 1 of the 2011 Amman Permaculture Design Certificate Course

The Permaculture Design Certificate course,an internationally-recognized, seventy-two hour course resulting in a Permaculture Design Certificate got underway today.

The course provides an introduction to permaculture design as set forth by movement founder Bill Mollison. Yesterday's proceedings were opened by Geoff Lawton ably assisted by Warren Brush and Nadia Lawton. The PDC

serves as foundation for further permaculture work and study and is a prerequisite for the Diploma in Permaculture Design, offered through The
Permaculture Institute. Topics covered included, besides an overview and introduction to the subject evidence of the dire need to act.

Given the desperate need, both regionally and internationally, to increase water resiliency and security, as well as stem rising food prices were made abundantly clear. Lectures continue tomorrow with lectures in Concepts and Themes in Design.
