Permaculture Design Course August 1-13, 2011

Project: Central Rocky Mountain Permaculture Institute

Posted by Jerome Osentowski over 9 years ago

Co-taught by Peter Bane, Jerome Osentowski, and Kelly Simmons. This is the 25th year of this course, offered by seasoned teachers at a fully active mature food forest ecosystem and community.

Course Overview:   The CRMPI Permaculture Design Certification Course is designed to give the participant an understanding of the essential elements and ideas of permaculture so that they can better design and engineer sustainable systems, including forest gardens, greenhouses, and other permaculture endeavors.   CRMPI contains one of the oldest forest garden demonstration sites in the US, as well as thriving mediterranean and tropical greenhouses at 7200 feet above sea level.  Study permaculture at this well-established, living example of permaculture principles in action.

 

CRMPI is located just 2.5 miles from downtown Basalt, Colorado. There is an airport in Aspen and we are also accessible by train into Glenwood Springs.

  • Tuition is $1,475 and requires a non-refundable $300 deposit.
  • Meals, camping and all curriculum materials will be provided.
  • Early-bird special: $50 off for registration by June 1st and discounts for couples.

 

Please call 970-927-4158 or e-mail [email protected] to register for the course or with questions.  www.crmpi.org

Joshua Choate : This was a wonderful experience. I attended the course and would recommend it to others. The site is amazing and provided the perfect backdrop for excellent instruction. I think you would get a similar report from anyone that attended.

Legend of Badges

Note: The various badges displayed in people profiles are largely honesty-based self-proclamations by the individuals themselves. There are reporting functions users can use if they know of blatant misrepresentation (for both people and projects). Legitimacy, competency and reputation for all people and projects can be evidenced and/or developed through their providing regular updates on permaculture work they’re involved in, before/after photographs, etc. A spirit of objective nurturing of both people and projects through knowledge/encouragement/inspiration/resource sharing is the aim of the Worldwide Permaculture Network.

PRI Teacher

With the exception of the ‘Member’ who has never taken a PDC, all of the above can apply to become a PRI PDC Teacher. PRI PDC Teachers are those who the PRI recognise, through a vetting board, as determined and competent to teach the full 72-hour course as developed by Permaculture founder Bill Mollison – covering all the topics of The Designers’ Manual as well as possible (i.e. not cherry picking only aspects the teacher feels most interested or competent in). Such teachers also commit to focussing on the design science, and not including subjective spiritual/metaphysical elements. The reason these items are not included in the PDC curriculum is because they are “belief” based. Permaculture Design education concerns itself with teaching good design based on strategies and techniques which are scientifically provable.

PRI PDC Teachers may be given teaching and/or consultancy offerings as they become available as the network grows.
