Time Commitment

The Permaculture Design Course (PDC) takes place over a total of 13 days.  When you enroll, please mark those days on your calendar right away.

Because we offer a Weekend Format, please pay attention to whether your PDC dates are all Saturday & Sunday or whether some Fridays are involved.  All courses have a final 3-day weekend running from Friday morning through end-of-day Sunday.

Plan on a Time Commitment of:

  • 2-3 hours of pre-work prior to the start of course (articles, videos)
  • 13 Days (spread out over either 5 or 6 weekends)
  • 8-9 hours per course day (9am to 5:30 or 9am to 7:30 when we have evening programs)
  • 3-4 hours of “homework” between course weekends (reading, videos, etc.)
