The first PDC to take place in Orkney


This is the first Permaculture Design Course (PDC) to be formally hosted by Permaculture Scotland, the first PDC to take place in Orkney and the most northern ever in the UK, and the first PDC in the UK to receive grant funding to support local regeneration. A one-of-a-kind event, this course has a lot of firsts – did we mention that it will also be first rate?!

Being led by one of the longest-standing permaculture educators in Britain, Graham Bell, we are very pleased to announce a PDC with room for 24 participants in the beautiful archipelago of Orkney. A unique location, with a fascinating and often underappreciated place in Britain’s cultural and historical heritage, Orkney Mainland provides the backdrop for this opportunity supported by Pebble Trust, via Permaculture Scotland’s ScotLAND project, and organised by Stromness Community Garden. This will hopefully be the first such course of many to target social, economic and ecological regeneration in the Highlands and Islands of Scotland.

This is a two-week intensive course. If you don’t know what to expect from a PDC, check out Graham’s recent reflections on what the course means to him and also take a look at the course curriculum for details.
