Cancelled for 2020
Quail Springs’ Permaculture Design Course (PDC) is a 14-day immersive experience of hands-on practicum, in-classroom learning, and community building. Participants who complete the course will receive a Permaculture Certification through the Permaculture Research Institute.
At Quail Springs we strive to create an integrated curriculum that is self-aware, actionable, and community based. We will work together to imagine and design systems for a sustainable and abundant world. At the Quail Springs PDC we aim to create a space in which inspiration abounds and relationships flourish.
