Event description

Description

Permaculture is a worldwide community education initiative that provides eco-literacy skills and tools to anyone wishing to develop their autonomy, attain food or energy security, and restore natural and cultivated ecosystems. This course will get you started in living a truly more sustainable life.

Where?

The course will take place on our farm (Jilliby – Central Coast, Australia). It is a great escape from the city, and everywhere you see is a teaching ground for permaculture principles and applications. Last but not least, we can get our hands dirty there and it won’t matter!

There will also be some site visits at local suburban homes that have been successfully retrofitted to permaculture.

Main features

  • the course is rooted on the official 72h programme, and is revised, refreshed, up-to-date.
  • teaching is grounded in Rosemary Morrow's teaching principles.
  • our course is loaded with buckets of practical tips on gardening/farming/simple living, site visits and how-to, so expect to get your hands or jeans dirty!
  • the course takes place at the farm where you can see plants and animals systems used successfully.
  • teaching is learner-centered, integrative, and engaging.
  • we are a down-to-earth family with care at heart, living and breathing permaculture.

Learning to design with us is to:

  • foster your ability to ‘read’ the landscape and to observe patterns,
  • enable you to interpret those patterns,
  • find appropriate solutions that will benefit you and nature,
  • foster your innate abilities, your self-responsibility, and your creativity
  • prepare... prepare... prepare, for resiliency, for emergencies, or for strong sustainability.
