Final Permaculture Design Certificate Course project for the fall 2013 We Are All Farmers Permaculture Institute PDC. We Are All Farmers' PDCs focus on sites in need and permaculture design certificate students devised designs and plans for this site themselves, using Bill Mollison's Permaculture, A Designer's Manual, as a guide. The design represents the cumulation of their work on understanding the principles of permaculture designs and the techniques, but even more importantly, serves as a chance to work together as community, pro bono, within the community with a real design client. This hard “we” work is essential for creating permanent and regenerative culture, and that is the hard work of creating and sustaining local and regional community.
In brief, people are the “culture” part of permaculture. “Permanent” is the goal of the technical practices. A culture of one is not a culture just as technical practices do not make permanent culture.
