The Permaculture Design Course (PDC) was developed to teach the principles and foundations of ecological design. 

Permaculture is an ethically based, holistic design system based on ecological principles. It provides a framework for creating productive ecosystems and sustainable human settlements that mimic the patterns found in nature, which deliver diversity, stability, and resilience. Although permaculture is most commonly thought about in connection with gardening & farming, its principles, ethics and design methods can be adapted and used in each individual’s own work, home and community.
