We are happy to be able to announce that we are delivering a full PDC (Permaculture Design Course) in Uganda this May.
A PDC is an internationally recognised curriculum in ecological design that can be applied to community work, growing and gardening, business planning and more. The course involves a minimum of 80 hours of study and is suitable for anyone with teaching, leadership, planning and development skills.
We work with everyone from Doctors to community gardeners and small farmers! The course is certificated and recognised around the World as a gateway qualification in environmental, farming and community work.
Sector39 is a teaching organisation based in Wales UK and with strong links to Uganda via Dolen Ffermio (Wales/ Uganda farmers link charity) and the Permaculture Research Institute of Uganda. We are also part funded by the European Union and Wales government. As well as offering practical training via this course we are also working with next generation teachers and leaders in permaculture offering on going support and training to those individuals who wish to progress to becoming permaculture teachers themselves.The first East African Permaculture Convergence is taking place on Monday 28th and Tuesday 29th May at Sabina school in Uganda. The convergence continues immediately after a two week permaculture design course at the same venue.
