Greetings Resilient Whatcom PDC 2020 Students and Friends our Hands-on PDC has been postponed, However…
At this juncture we are excited to offer you several new choices to get your Permaculture Design Certificate.
1) If you would like to get your PDC certification now via an online course we offer you the opportunity to enroll at Oregon State University world class PDC. They have offered to open this up to our students at a discount as a result of Covid-19 affecting many face to face courses.
OSU offers the full course content taught by two of our top Cascadia colleagues, Marisha Auerbach and Andrew Millison, along with many guest experts. This class has been offered by OSU for the past 8 years and is PINA certified. They will partner with us so that we can act as your local mentors helping guide you through the 10 week self paced course. Our students will receive weekly support and guidance from Brian and Bruce!
To find more information and to enroll in OSU’s online PDC program, the link is here.
When you register for the OSU PDC please make sure to use the promo code BKPerm and you will receive a 5% discount. About $45 off the regular price. We will start our group by May 1 so please register before then and let us know.
If you decide to do the OSU course we could plan to do an optional hands-on workshop in the future. This would flush out your competency in permaculture design skills. There would be an addition cost.
We hope to offer this Hands-On, in-person PDC course in the future so that you may get the full experience. The dates are obviously yet to be determined. Stay posted for more on this.
If you would like a refund of your course tuition we are happy to offer you a refund.
We hope to be able to provide some free content and information that will give some tools and things you can do right now as well as information to get your gardens and nursery production going in order to create some resilience for the near future. Sign up to receive notifications for events here.
We can also offer some virtual consultations and mentorships while still practicing physical distancing.
Thank you for bearing with this process. We hope you find a path that works for you at this time. If you have any questions don’t be afraid to ask.
Wishing you all health, insight and resilience during this time of reflection and interconnection.
