Elfin Permaculture Celebrates 10th Annual Online Course
Elfin Permaculture's 10th Annual Permaculture Design Course Online, which begins Sept. 18, 2005, culminates a decade of the online courses and nearly a quarter century of teaching permaculture.
To recognize this milestone, for this course cycle only, Elfin Permaculture:
The certificate course runs six months and includes the following learning approaches:
Registration is limited because of the time required to review and critique individual designs.
The online course consists of three consecutive sections, plus work on a permaculture design which students undertake throughout the cycle in which they are registered. Samples of design work are included in the course CD.
Content of the course sections follow:
The course follows the outline of
Dan's 3-week certificate course, with additions allowed by the longer course
duration and adaptations to the email medium. It consists of three
sections, as follows:
Section 3: Social Permaculture. Design Report.
Online course participants have come from every continent on Earth and a number of island countries, from latitudes spanning the equatorial tropics to sub-arctic, and a comparable range of elevations, etc.. The course is suited to beginning permaculture design students, people seeking support in producing a permaculture design for their own homes, and, by special arrangement, people with some permaculture experience who wish work in advanced areas.
Successful students receive certification as entry-level permaculturists. Advanced students pay no extra, but are expected to be additional resources to the regular students.
