The Carraig Dulra Permaculture Design Course (PDC) embraces head, heart, and hands-on learning, offering a transformative and immersive educational experience.
Over the past 7 years, together with participants’ feedback and ideas, we have consciously crafted a course that responds to the needs of the participants and the emerging current issues.
The 2021 blended model offers all of the outcomes of any PDC plus an integrated ‘learning pathway’ structure and a community of practice which together help bring the learning to action in your own projects and life.
The carefully designed education environment of Carraig Dúlra, the tutor team, and course content will empower you to apply Permaculture design to your own garden, household, farm, business, community project, and your own life path.
1 weekend and 1 full week (10 days total) onsite at Carraig Dulra, plus an online classroom and resources — see website for details
Location: Carraig Dúlra Farm
This 14 year old permaculture smallholding site lends us the fantastic opportunity to explore practical elements of land-based permaculture interconnected with community engagement initiatives & permaculture-based livelihoods. Earth care, People care & Fairshares in action!
It is a space where a variety of other educational and community initiatives take place. These include: teaching organic growing, permaculture, gardening for biodiversity, sustainable and traditional skills, primitive living (or bushcraft), nature courses for children and families, and creative healing workshops combining Art Therapy Techniques with Eco Psychology and Nature, as well as, other gatherings and eco/hikers’ camping.
