Permaculture Design Certificate Program
This 100-hour course was developed and implemented in partnership with the Resilience Hub and MOFGA since 2012. Students who successfully complete our course receive the internationally recognized PDC certificate.
Online Permaculture Design Intensive
Our 25-hour course was designed for those who are unable to commit to a full PDC or who want a refresher in permaculture design process and technique. We’ve consolidated the key components of the certificate program into a 3-week intensive online class.
Maine Ecological Design School was established in 2020. We are permaculture designers and builders, homesteaders and gardeners, organizers and facilitators – located in Wabanaki territory currently known as Maine. We have been teaching design courses since 2012 through Midcoast Permaculture Design and The Resilience Hub.
- Guide people into a new way of seeing and being with the world
- Reconnect people to the landscapes immediately around them in profound new ways, centered on awareness and observation of natural patterns
- Teach people how to plan and design a landscape and lifeway that results in the kind of world we want to build for the grandchildren.
- Our Permaculture Design Certificate (PDC) program will empower you with the skills to design and build novel edible ecosystems where you live.
After completing Maine Ecological Design School’s Permaculture Design Certificate course this summer, I’m left with a wealth of knowledge, a new group of dear friends across the state, and a much deeper appreciation for the web of life we are a part of.-Marcis, PDC 2022
The delicious shared meals and the camaraderie of all participants were the absolute highlights of taking this course this summer.– Nathaniel, PDC 2022
This was an amazing introduction to Permaculture Design. Having my base map in my hands makes me feel like I have an understanding of what I’m looking for, what to focus on, and what possible designs to consider moving forward. It’s obvious that Kate and Jesse have a passion for sharing what they know and I look forward to joining future courses!-Mikayla, Design Intensive 2020
