You will learn how to observe and use the same principles that make ecological systems self-sustaining, and apply them to integrated homes and gardens. In addition, you will learn how to apply these principles to energy systems and water supplies, healthy communities, meaningful and fulfilling work, ecological economies and global political movements for change. The four-seasons format also allows you the opportunity to implement permaculture principles at home and bring your experiences and questions back to the class for feedback and discussion.

In addition to the full curriculum presented in all of RDI's permaculture design certification courses, the PDC offered at the Santa Cruz Waldorf School will be uniquely integrated with the Waldorf School Community as well as being connected with the UCSC agro-ecology community, Transition Santa Cruz, and the Live Oak Grange. The course will include discussion of Rudolf Steiner's teachings on agriculture, known as Biodynamics, which is being recognized for increasing soil health and corresponding plant and animal health and nutritional quality. We will also explore Steiner's thoughts on the human-nature connection and land stewardship, as well as business, economics and the three-fold social order. This collaboration will be a dynamic and community building experience for all involved.
