Filmed entirely on location in the beautiful hills of central Vermont, this educational documentary series offers an opportunity to join students as they learn to become permaculture designers and practitioners during an applied Permaculture Design Course hosted by Whole Systems Design LLC. Condensing the contents of two separate 10-day courses, the Permaculture Skills film series is an invitation to share in the experience and learn from a combination of academic teaching, practical field work and hands-on workshops.
The Permaculture Design Course
The Certified Permaculture Design Course (PDC) has become a standard in permaculture training across the world for those wishing to create resilient, productive systems for themselves or their clients. PDCs are typically taught over a period of several days and can represent an investment in time and money that many people aren't able to make. While this film series won't be a substitute for attending such a course in person (and won't provide any kind of certification) we believe it will introduce the viewers to many of the lessons taught in a PDC in a format accessible to anyone.
The entire contents from 20 days of training will be edited into a series of video segments offered as a choice of 4-DVD set or online streaming. These will combine more formal academic lectures with field work and observation, as well as several practical workshops introducing the students to a multitude of hands-on, technical skills.Ben Falk
