A Permaculture Design Certification Course (PDC) is a 72-hour or more training that prepares the student on the path of regenerative, ecological design and leadership. It covers the foundations of permaculture ethics, principles, and design methods. The training experience offers students a formalized structure in learning to design regenerative solutions that address water scarcity, climate change, food production, sustainable infrastructure, renewable energy, social systems and more . It is a great opportunity for those who are interested in environmental sciences, landscaping, farming, gardening, community building, and sustainability. Upon completion, students receive an internationally recognized certificate.
A PDC at the Sivananda Yoga Farm is not only inspiring, but is an opportunity for inner growth and transformation. The daily rhythm of the course will follow the Ashram’s daily schedule of morning and evening meditations, chanting and spiritual lectures. Yoga classes and two organic vegetarian meals are offered each day. The course is a wonderful way to experience a classical Yoga lifestyle and to network with like-minded individuals. The course also includes outdoor hands-on activities, which not all PDC’s offer.
