PDC May 2018



La Loma Viva is excited to welcome back our mentor, Alex Kruger (South Africa) for the 4th year running! Alex has been a permaculture designer, teacher and social activist for over 25 years and will be the lead facilitator for the PDC. Karen de Vries and Ryan Botha (the La Loma Viva team) will be sharing their knowledge as co-facilitators on the course, as well as the international itinerant investigator, Roman Eisenkolbl (of Soil*Sun*Soul). 

The PDC is an inspiring course that connects us to our world. It is a comprehensive, certified permaculture course with international recognition, providing basic skills in a vast array of subjects, to enable you to start designing a world based on the ethics of earth care and people care. Permaculture provides the tools for whole systems thinking, allowing us to understand that we are interconnected and interdependent with all of the living world. It helps us to apply these skills in all our activities and professions, to create a more regenerative way of being, that rehabilitates degraded systems in all areas of life.

The PDC will be held over 14 days at La Loma Viva, where participants will be immersed in an established permaculture farm, will be able to see regenerative systems in action and be nourished by living organic food from our land, lovingly prepared by our brilliant catering team. You can choose to stay in our beautiful eco retreat centre or camp under the olive trees, overlooking the Mediterranean sea and Sierra Nevada mountain range. 

The PDC at La Loma Viva provides a top quality educational experience, a break into nature where you can get inspired, a chance to meet like minded friends from around the world, encouragement to become a change maker and demonstrates a way to live harmoniously with the earth. While also having loads of fun!
