While visiting Scott Pittman at his home in New Mexico, we spoke about the history of Permaculture and how standards in Permaculture education have been a constant part of the dialog between Permaculture educators. Some people are teaching PDCs that have less than 72 contact hours, and we should really be discussing if this is adequate. There is a place for education of this type, but we really shouldn’t be calling it a PDC because it dilutes the credibility of courses that most other people are teaching.
In future episode we talk more about the Permaculture Institute’s Diploma program, and how this is going to impact the world of Permaculture.
