The format

VEG’s 2025 Permaculture Design Certificate (PDC) course includes around 120 hours of contact time (most PDCs are 72 hours) and has the following bold new format!

One week in the city (at a lovely school and demonstration sites) during school holidays July 1 – 7

Then four fortnightly weekends including overnight trips away, ending on Sept 1.


Our 2024 PDC will be co-lead by VEG’s own Adam Grubb and our talented friend Kat Lavers. Dare we say two of the most sought after permaculture teachers and consultants in the land? We’ll also visit in their natural habitats people like permaculture co-originator David Holmgren and partner Su Dennett, alternative technology legend Joel Meadows, we’ll meet people from the Fryer’s Forest ecovillage, and working farms and more. Check out the bios.


This permaculture design course will have a home base at the beautiful Pavillion School in East Preston, Melbourne, while visiting lots of inspiring locations in and around Melbourne, including a weekend away based at the beautiful Yandoit Farmin Central Victoria.


The course fee is $2400 ($2090 concession) Click here to register!

You can secure your place with a $100 deposit and we’ll be in touch to work out a part-payment system.
