Permaculture Design Certification (PDC) 2017


Have you ever wanted to learn more about Permaculture? Do you wish you had flourishing gardens with fruit tree’s, herbs, and abundant fresh vegetables growing in your front or backyard like the ones at Montessori?

Permaculture (short for permanent agriculture) teaches you to get the most out of space, filling it with useful and edible plants, all to the benefit of the land. Humans reap the rewards on so many levels – juicy fresh blackberries or a warm vine ripe tomato, the cool shade on a warm summer day offered by a plum tree, butterflies and birds attracted to the garden by flowers and food, the gift of hours quietly working in the garden. And then there’s the fact that there’s nothing more satisfying to the soul than cooking with food you’ve grown yourself!

If this sounds exciting to you, then you may be interested in taking a Permaculture Design Certification course.

Jenny Kimmel, longtime gardening teacher at GMS, and the Land-Lab Coordinator, is offering a 72 hour Certification that will teach you not only the fundamentals of Permaculture, but also hands-on knowledge of how to implement those principles to build a better backyard, community garden, and world.

We’ll even be visiting the gardens at GMS during the course and getting our  hands dirty on a fun an innovative project!
