Online Permaculture Course Lecture Series Curriculum

Welcome to the Online Permaculture Course Lecture Series Curriculum Overview. We will go through all the aspects of Permaculture Design Science that will be taught to you on your Permaculture Design Course Online.

Learning Permaculture Online has Never Been Easier

Rak Tamachat has teamed up the Sustainable Agriculture Education Institute to bring the world famous Rak Tamachat Permaculture Design Course, taught by Beau Wickboldt to a larger Global Audience. The Permaculture Design Lecture Series is one of the cornerstone features of a Permaculture Design Course and as such is highlighted on the Online Permaculture Course. The Permaculture Lecture Series will teach you all the Theory behind Permaculture as a Design Science and then move into how to utilize the Permaculture Design Theory to Create Permaculture Design Strategies that you can use to implement your Permaculture Designed Dreams.

Online Permaculture Course Components

The Online Permaculture Design Lecture Series, as presented by world-renowned Permaculture Design Educator Beau Wickboldt.

Beau is the founder and lead educator at the Rak Tamachat Permaculture and Natural Building Education Institute.  Beau has a gift for bringing complex subjects to life with simple, easy to understand language, that allows for non-technical learners the ability to grasp the complex nature of Permaculture Design, as taught by the co-founder of Permaculture Bill Mollison in Permaculture: A Designers’ Manual.

The Designers’ Manual has been the basis for the Permaculture Designer Certification Course for over 40 years. Beau guides you through the Theory of Permaculture Design chapter by chapter and then works to show how to develop Permaculture Design Strategies and the Implementation of the Permaculture Design Strategies on your site. 

The Culmination of your online Permaculture Design Course will be the completion of your very own Permaculture Master Plan Design. Beau will guide you along the Step-by-Step Permaculture Design Process to teach you all the Permaculture Design Theory and Strategies needed to make your Permaculture Dreams a reality.

Module 01 – Introduction to Permaculture

Permaculture is grounded by Three Core EthicsEarth Care, People Care, and Fair Share. Also introduced are the guiding Permaculture Design Principles which open the exploration of Permaculture as a Design Science.

Module 02 – Concepts & Themes in Permaculture

Permaculture as a Design Science is expanded upon through the introduction of Design Concepts and  Themes. We learn the theory behind Permaculture Design and how to create Concepts and build Themes in our Master Plans.

Module 03 – Methods of Permaculture Design

The Concepts and Themes of our Permaculture Designs are implemented by the Methods of Permaculture Design. We learn to use the Permaculture Design Tool Sets to create and integrate our Permaculture Master Planned Design Systems.

Module 04 – Pattern Understanding

As Permaculturists, we know that Nature is our true teacher and that we must look to her guidance to see how Energy Flows. We learn that, by developing our Pattern Eye, we can unlock the Secrets of Nature.

Module 05 – Climatic Factors in Permaculture

The understanding of the Global Factors driving our climate and the changes in our climate, in the macro and micro, teaches us as Permaculturists to creatively respond to the changes happening in our Designer Built Environments.

Module 06 – Trees & Their Energy Transactions

Learn to Plan, Design and  Implement a perennial food growing system based on the succession and stability of a natural forest. You will learn how trees transact energy and all of the tools to start making Sustainable Food   Production a reality.

Module 07 – Permaculture Water Systems

We learn how the Global Water Cycle sustains life and how we can design and build Sustainable Water Systems to both harness and clean water. Water is life and in Permaculture Design we work with water to Produce Life.

Module 08 – Soil Science – The Soil Food Web 

The soil is the basis for all life. We learn to Work with the Soil to build interactions and help facilitate the conditions for life to flourish. In Permaculture, we Farm the Soil and both Healthy & Nutritious fruits and vegetables are the result.

Module 09 – Earth Works and Earth Resources 

We learn to Use the Earth to solve the problems of agriculture by stopping erosion, de-compacting soils and starting Perennial Food Systems. We learn to make dams, ponds, micro garden swales, broad-scale swales, and chinampas.

Module 10 – The Humid Tropics Climate

We learn how the Humid Tropics climate works, and how we can utilize Design Strategies and Implementation Techniques to build our Organic Growing Systems and Natural Built Homes to mitigate the effects of the tropics.

Module 11 – Dry Land Climate Strategies 

We learn to combat a Lack of Precipitation, by the developing Water Harvesting Strategies to capture water in our soils and catchments. We learn how to make Water Conservation Gardens and build Natural Homes for Dry / Hot Climates.

Module 12 – Humid Cool to Cold Climates 

Learn about the Temperate Climates, and how to combat issues such as frost, snow, and cold winds. Learn to use Wind Breaks, Green Houses and Poly Tunnels to help mitigate the Chilling Effects of the cold on our growing systems.

Module 13 – Aquaculture & Perma-ponics

We learn to understand, design and construct  Aquaponic Landscapes. Water growing systems are superior in supporting life than land-based systems and with Perma-ponics, we learn to harness water for our soil based growing systems.

Module 14 – Strategies of an Alternative Global Nation

Learn how the future depends on everyone coming together to Make a Change. Building stronger communities; sharing more is the way. Learn how to use tools, technologies, and policies to Make the World a Better Place.

BONUS Module 15 – Animal Husbandry

Learn how Holistic Management returns animals to their natural place. We learn how Nature manages animals, to see that the way of the future is not in a cage. Integrating animals back into Natural Systems  returns ethics to farming.

BONUS Module 16Food Forest & Garden Design

Beau guides you step-by-step through the Food Forest or Forest Garden Design Process. The Design Process will allow you to make sure that your trees are spaced in accordance with access, light, slope, spacing, etc…
