This is an opportunity for PDC program graduates to put their education to use. During these two weeks we will work on various projects that incorporate what you learned at your PDC. These may include large or small scale building projects, terraforming projects, planting, rainwater collection and storage, and a variety of projects that demonstrate appropriate technology.
Our focus for this APSI will be implementing the Zone 2A design. We will be cutting down dead trees, creating beds and walkways, putting in fence to exclude wildlife, planting fruit trees and guilds, creating a water catchment and storage high in the landscape, beginning work on the foundation for a Copertwaite-inspired yurt, and laying out a small Zone 1 garden for the yurt.
At the end of this intensive, you will be more than ready to begin your Permaculture practice as a Designer and Teacher.
Meals are included for resident students, except those you choose to take on your own off-campus. Saturdays and Sundays are free for exploring the local area, hiking the trails, organizing and participating in various activities, or for chilling together on the farm.
Private vehicles may be used off campus. We encourage our students to bring a bicycle to get around town for conveniences.
Accommodation is camping. You can bring and pitch a tent or yurt. You are also welcome to bring your camper or tiny house. We do have limited space for those. Depending upon size, we can accommodate approximately six.
Smoking, drugs, and alcohol are strictly prohibited on the property.
Health and Safety Measures: If you have cold or flu-like symptoms or have been in contact with a confirmed case of Covid-19, please do not enter the campus. Your instructor is an immuno-compromised person. Masking is optional, according to your comfort.
