Send the sharing link to email@example.com. If you need help doing this, contact our administrator for assistance at firstname.lastname@example.org.Documents required for all disciplines: Letter of recommendation from a PINA diplomate or equivalent - this person must be familiar with your work and believe that you already meet the requirements for a PINA diploma. This is our basic gateway requirement to the Experienced Track Diploma. Resume / CV - current 2-3 page resume outlining your permaculture education and experience. List of Courses and Designs - please provide a list of clearly numbered courses taught, designs completed, or sites implemented, as required by your specialty. We are not looking for lengthy descriptions in these lists. For courses, we would like to see the format (residential/online/weekend), month and year, co-teachers, and venue. For designs, we suggest listing the site location and size, ecological/social conditions of the site or project, year of work, co-designers if any, and general scope. For sites, please list the same information as for designs, being sure to clarify the scope of work. These should be not more than a paragraph or a list of bullet points for each design. For the single site Development & Implementation diploma, please provide a two page narrative as described on the Requirements page. Goals and Contributions - a brief statement of your goals working in permaculture, and any unique contributions you have made to the field. Certifications - copy of PDC and advanced permaculture course certificate(s) for courses taken. If unavailable, provide verification and date from the course instructor. For the Permaculture Site Design discipline, also submit the following: Full documentation of three site designs including both the graphic and report. Designs should exhibit a similar range of scope and scale as required of regular candidates, i.e., invisible structures, team design, rural, urban, etc. Team-based design work is encouraged. Demonstration of skills is required that connect design to the real world, including problem solving ability, budgeting, generating estimates and scheduling. Please see the regular Diploma of Site Design Requirements on our website for a detailed description of what to include in a design presentation for your portfolio. Description of your Design Process flow. Copy of your Client Questionnaire. Two letters of recommendation from clients you served in a professional capacity and who are not related to you. These should verify that your work contributes to the adaptation of the site to an appropriate regenerative ecology; that you can work well with clients in realizing both their personal goals and the ecological needs of the site itself; and that you have experience with design implementation or contributed significant support (budget, timeline, sources, etc…) to the practical development of the project on the ground. For the Permaculture Education discipline, also submit the following: Two letters of recommendation from senior teachers under whose supervision you have co-taught at least two PDCs. Both recommendation letters should include verification that you are qualified to teach the entire PDC on your own and to certify students. A senior teacher is a PINA diplomate or someone from the PINA list of senior invitees. An exception may be made at the discretion of the application reviewer for one of the instructors if they have a very strong reputation teaching in other countries. A requirement is that both the Education diploma applicant and the senior teacher were present at the whole course together. The intent is that the candidate was under observation and received feedback on their presentations, as well as learning additional perspectives, information and teaching techniques by attending the modules taught by the senior instructor. Detailed curriculum notes on three main PDC subjects: one invisible/meta- systems, one natural systems; one cultivated systems, e.g., economics, forests and trees, waste treatment). Documentation of two site designs including both the graphic depiction and report. Documented designs should be of two different scopes, scales or other significant variation (rural, urban, invisible structures). They should demonstrate team work and skills that connect design to the real world, such as problem solving ability or budgeting and scheduling. Description of your Design Process flow. Copy of your Client Questionnaire. Note: At least 10 PDCs (after your initial student course), at which you were present for the full course need to be described in the List of Courses and Designs. A couple of these could be full six day advanced permaculture courses in Teaching or Design if you did these with your senior co-instructor and they are mentioned in your letter of recommendation. At least an additional three designs need to be described in the List of Courses and Designs. For the Permaculture Site Development & Implementation discipline, also submit the following: NOTE - there are two tracks within the Site Development & Implementation diploma. One emphasizes a single site that has been developed over multiple years. The other track emphasizes implementation of permaculture designs on multiple sites. Both tracks: Full documentation of two permaculture designs with drawings and report. Designs should exhibit a range of scope and scale. See the Requirements page for more details. Description of your design process flow. Client questionnaire. Single site track: Documentation of the single site development. This design can be one of the two designs requested above. Please include: A schematic of the basic design, as well as baseline assessments of soil, water, biomass and species from beginning of intervention to date. description of inputs necessary for establishing the project, along with its human co-creators, that reveal how the design and implementation together address permaculture ethics. Evidence that the development has yielded substantial product for sale, trade, or free dissemination to the local community: examples would include produce, seed, nursery, livestock, breeding stock, botanicals, published research, craft from on-site resources, or equivalent surplus. In a public, communal, or natural setting, solid evidence of land repair, use for social benefit, or creation and use of a common pool resource from the land may substitute for product in establishing a beneficial yield to the community. Two letters of recommendation from PINA diplomates or equivalent who are professionally familiar with the site. Documentation of public speaking, media presentations or publications about the body of work, field days at the site(s), or workshops let by you and centered on practices or systems you developed. Multiple sites track: Fully document two system implementations. These should be for different sites than your site designs. Documentation of two site implementations shall include: A schematic of the basic design, as well as baseline assessments of soil, water, biomass and species from beginning of intervention to date. description of inputs necessary for establishing the project, along with its human co-creators, that reveal how the design and implementation together address permaculture ethics. The two documented sites should demonstrate different scales and terrain, preferably including a site of more than five acres and an urban or suburban site. At least one should be an occupied residential site. Please include analysis of lessons learned by comparing this project with other related projects. Documentation of public speaking, media presentations or publications about the body of work, field days at the site(s), or workshops led by you and centered on practices or systems you developed. Note: Describe at least 10 implementations with supporting documentation in the list of Courses and Designs. Similar to the requirements for Site Designs, these should include the site location and size, ecological/social conditions of the site or project, year of work, the designer(s) of the project, and the scope of work. They should demonstrate a range of scope.Terms & Conditions* I have read and agree to the terms and conditions of PINA’s Experienced-track diploma process.
