July 2011 through November 2011

This course is designed for busy people who want to take a PDC but can’t get away for a 9-day course.  This certified 72-hour Permaculture Design Course (PDC) taught by Terra-Genesis’s Mary Johnson will incorporate field trips to local farms, cultural events and guest appearances from other local teachers (tba). Mary has been teaching and working internationally for many years and brings strong practical experience to her permaculture design perspective that is grounded in farm business planning and holistic management. 

This full 72-hour certified Permaculture Design Course will be broken down into 4 weekend sessions, and will be held at a rural residence located in  Ashfield, MA, the foothills of the Berkshires, where you will be surrounded by abundant opportunities for nature immersion and recreation.  The site was once part of a 200 acre New England dairy farm and is now ready to be transformed by your permaculture designs and numerous hands-on practical skill building sessions. The natural beauty and powerful spirit of the site will form the basis of this experiential course.  This site is ripe with learning opportunities, with a backdrop of amazing sunrises, and gorgeous vistas great for inspiration, spiritual renewal and creative nature design. 

Located within easy reach and accessible by public transportation, it is an easy commuting distance from New York City (3.5 hour drive), Boston (2 hour drive), and Washington D.C. (1.5 hour flight).  It is an ideal place to retreat from the stressful human built city environment, to renew and revive yourself and help you remember to your true path.
