including its ecosystems and resources?


This is an action focused programme that offers a Permaculture Design Certificate (PDC) and real life learning in strategic sustainable development.

This is a NZQA level 5 programme running with Otago Polytechnic, which can be studied by distance full-time over six months or part-time over one year.

The programme starts with a six-day block course  at the Treefield Events Park, Tui Community Golden Bay, and has two to three other block courses throughout the programme. Students learn through tutorials, online resources, presentations, real life projects and activities of their choice, readings, videos and ‘webinars’. A range of tutors and facilitators from the local area and through out New Zealand will assist your learning journey.

During the programme students participate in projects while exploring the ecological design principles of permaculture and identifying the social environmental, economic and political implications that underpin sustainability.
