EARTH CARE  ... PEOPLE CARE ... FAIR SHARE

Bouddi Permaculture has been delivering regenerative solutions to rebuild ecosystems and communities since 2012. Based on the beautiful NSW Central Coast, we facilitate permaculture training and support individuals to develop permaculture based projects.

 

PERMACULTURE

SOLUTIONS FOR GROWING AND LIVING

You could be forgiven for thinking that Permaculture is all about organic gardening - but it is way more than that!

Permaculture is a method of design that can be applied to landscapes, living spaces, individuals, communities and indeed large cities.

To really get a good understanding, the Permaculture Design Certificate (PDC), is a very effective way of learning to design permaculture solutions. Broken into modules, the course will give you the skills to turn your garden and living space into a productive, sustainable ecosystem!


All workshops are suitable for beginners or those with previous knowledge.

PERMACULTURE

Paula and Ian, through their International work have seen first hand the value that permaculture can bring to individuals and communities around the world.

One of the permaculture ethics is to 'share the surplus' and that doesn't only apply to sharing a glut of tomatoes! They practice this ethic by sharing their skills, and making sure that it is as affordable as possible for everyone.

Bouddi Permaculture offers a Permaculture Design Certificate (PDC) which we deliver via a series of practical and fun workshops that we call Solutions for Living and Growing.

The cost for this series of workshops is $770 which includes

  • 7 full day workshops full of practical learning

  • textbook  

  • all notes and required learning materials (seeds, plant material etc)

For those who would like to complete their Permaculture Design Certificate (PDC) - an internationally recognised accreditation - a further two full days of workshops will be offered to complete an individual permaculture design and a group design.


The cost for this extended course is $1100 and includes 

  • 7 full day workshops full of practical learning

  • textbook  

  • all notes and required learning materials (seeds, plant material etc)

  • 2 further full day workshops with support to complete your permaculture designs

  • extra practical elements

  • assessment

  • Permaculture Design Certificate (upon successful completion)​

Profits from the training are redirected to permaculture communities overseas that are impacted by climate events, food insecurity and conflict.

Nick

Great course facilitation by Anna and Paula and you get to meet lots of really nice people. The best things about the course are how much sense it all makes, it can be applied easily anywhere (even in an apartment) and it's really interesting and fun. It's made me realise the interconnectedness of every aspect of life and that it's up to you to make a difference in small ways rather than being depressed about the state of things. Putting the principles into practice is really fun and you don't need much space or money to do it. Seeing your garden grow and eating the nicest food is just the best!
