Weekly PC Zoom meeting

No Comments

What shall the topic be this month?
Starting seeds, bed prep, hard wood cuttings.

The last Friday of the month is regular Whatcom Permaculture meet up day. I propose we do a zoom meeting every Friday during COVID. Whoever wants to do a Zoom meeting Fridays at 6pm join us. I set it up here is the link

A Free gathering time for People interested in Permaculture from Whatcom county to come together and discuss ideas.

How can we move Permaculture forward here in Whatcom county. How can we as a community form guilds of different skill sets, aid in promoting permaculture related events and work within our community to install permaculture systems such as food forests, lending libraries, speakers forum and cooperative nurseries. Bring your idea to share!
How can we Showcase permaculture?
Open homes, gardens and farms, films, community gardens, educational workshops, permablitzes (garden makeovers) and more.

Why get a Permaculture Certificate?

No Comments

People sometimes ask us “why do I need to get a PDC? I can just learn it from books and Youtube”. Some of the many reasons why you may want to get your PDC are:

  • You want the complete picture of permaculture
  • To get the full Permaculture experience with like minded people.
  • You want the hands on experiences and design practices
  • You like the accreditation and validation a certificate gives
  • You like the cohesiveness that a PDC immersion class offers

The reasons you need to get a PDC is to be legitimate using the word Permaculture in your professional practice.

  • If you want to teach classes on permaculture
  • If you want to run a business using Permaculture as a guiding force
  • If you aspire to teach a full PDC at some point
  • If you want to be a Permaculture consultant or designer for others

We LOVE the thought that some of our students will go on to become teachers. Whether it is short workshops or presentations or involved in full permaculture design courses.

Geoff Lawton answers some of theses questions.
