Elaine White : I'm a little confused..... Terry Jensen said...."There seems to be some confusion about the Permaculture class starting on November 9 in Greenville and the certificate(s) you will be awarded. So please let me set the record straight.

The Permaculture Design Certificate course is a seventy-two hour training experience. Students who complete the full curriculum and all projects earn the internationally recognized Permaculture Design Certificate. It provides an introduction to Permaculture design as set forth by the movement’s co-founder Bill Mollison.

So, yes, this is a Permaculture Design Certificate Course and if you complete the work we will give you the Permaculture Design Certificate at the end of the class. " So....are you saying it is one but more....? Elaine White
