I have registered as an apprentice for the Diploma System 5.2 in November 2019 only a few days after finishing the Permaculture Design Certificate at High Heathercombe Center.

To be accredited with the Diploma I need to complete 10 Designs, which include a diverse choice of areas. You can see more about this in the table below.

Here are the 10 designs that I will be working on. These are not just random designs, they have been carefully chosen as you can see in the Action Learning Pathway design.

Design list

As the design work is still in progress you will notice that some are not complete and/or are not there at all. This is ok. I don’t expect to be finished with the whole portfolio until December 2021.

If you wish to learn more about my pacing and what I am doing with my time you can have a look at the Action Learning Pathway which includes a time table of my planned activities.
