You will learn how permaculture principles can enable you to create a sustainable, regenerative lifestyle in the city, a large block or on a farm by looking at energy flows and systems for design.
This introductory course will expose you to the principles and systems used in permaculture and will also provide you with the insight into the possibilities of transitioning to a small holding, farm or rural community. It is also the first weekend of a modular series of weekend courses being run by Southern Harvest Education in 2018 that will lead to the completion of your Permaculture Design Certificate (PDC).
You are welcome to attend whether or not you wish to do your PDC, and in fact, it’s a great way to find out if a PDC is for you.
Is permaculture for me?
There are so many aspects to permaculture it can benefit everyone – whether you are starting with 5 square metres or 500 acres!
Connecting with John Champagne and Penny Kothe for two days of permaculture basics will leave you full of enthusiasm, knowledge and skills ready to roll up your sleeves and get stuck into sustainability projects.
You’ll also be in a prime position to explore and research aspects of sustainable design that may interest you from land regeneration, efficient healthy gardening for yourself or profit, or ultimately building more sustainable community networks like food co-operatives or community garden groups in your local area.
This course focuses on practical implementation as well as the theory behind permaculture, its history, principles and design skills
