This work is the culmination of 15 years of Permaculture Design study by Delvin Solkinson which spanned a PDC, Diploma and Masters Degree with Bill Mollison and the Permaculture Academy, a second Diploma through the Permaculture Institute and a current third Diploma through the Permaculture Association. A final project in a Doctoral level study of Permaculture Education, Delvin has collected these principles and core concepts at 23 different Permaculture Design Advanced Courses and Teacher Trainings as well as a PDC with Rosemary Morrow and Toby Hemenway.

Deep gratitude to Unity Life Avatar who did graphic design the Permaculture Principles Design Deck, a previous incarnation of this project.

This is a companion for the Core Curriculum Notes. Together they form a toolkit sharing a creative essence of the Permaculture Design Toolkit.

Share and support this work to make permaculture accessible in a gamified form which is freely shared with the World Community.
