The Permaculture Design Course (PDC)
A comprehensive introduction to permaculture principles, applications & design practices. The 80+hour PDC at Djanbung Gardens includes the standard 72-hour international PDC curriculum, addressing all major climatic zones (temperate, subtropic, tropical & arid) and the breadth of permaculture applications for sustainable urban, rural & bioregional design and development.
Our permaculture training gives special attention to climatic zones represented by course participants. The course meets a common international standard as a foundation course for permaculture practitioners and teachers.
PCA offers a great range of short courses throughout the year, for professional development and for people looking for practical skills and knowledge for sustainable living and self reliance. Most of these short courses at Djabung Gardens form part of the full-time APT accredited training and are included in the International Internship programs. Our faculty of highly experienced permaculture teachers also deliver some of these programs elsewhere in the Northern Rivers and overseas.
