  Winter Permaculture Design Certification (PDC) Course - Focusing on
  Small Scale Growing and Farming

Location:  Stelle, IL 60919

Permaculture is a creative and artful way of living, where people and 
nature are both preserved and enhanced by thoughtful planning, the 
careful use of resources, mimicking the patterns found in nature and a 
respectful approach to life.

Growing and selling wholesome food while also taking care of the land is 
a challenge for most people who undertake small farming operations. 
Relatively few have done so successfully without burning out.  When 
Permaculture design is applied to a food growing or farming operation, 
wastes become resources, work is minimized, yields increase and the land 
is restored. The farmer, her neighbors and his community benefit as well.

In this Permaculture Design Certification (PDC) Course, students will 
learn the fundamentals of Permaculture while also meeting many growers 
who have beat the odds and become solvent at small scale farming and 
urban growing.

The emphasis of this course:
1. Using Permaculture design to enhance small scale farming and 
suburban/urban food production
2. Transforming back yards, city lots, roof tops and community commons 
areas into bountiful (& beautiful) gardens
3. Making a farming business economically profitable, socially 
responsible and environmentally sound.
4. Minimizing work and reducing fossil fuel requirements for an energy 
lean future
5. Fostering long term financial and food security for ourselves and 
surrounding communities.
