Summary: 

During this week we will explore what it means to create and to be community. We will use permaculture principles, permaculture design and practices from indigenous cultures worldwide as our main toolbox. At the same time we will be experiencing community life first-hand in the new eco-community of Haslachhof, which will be our venue, our village and our social landscape to design for and with.
We will also be sharing practices of cultural repair as they have been gathered and evolved over time by earth-based people and spread by the 8 Shields Institute. As well as connecting with self and others we will also connect to the land and its creatures - we are blessed to have forests and a creek nearby.
We will practice nature connected community design by working on design exercises relating to the Haslachhof community.
This course is for everyone interested in community design and suits people who have already done a full 72 hours permaculture design course and want to deepen their social permaculture skills as well as for people without any previous permaculture or nature connection experience who want to learn about community design and deep nature connection.

• Basic practical site surveying skills

• Practical ways of surveying plants and vegetation

Summary: 

During this fun filled practical week we focus on specific methods and techniques used in Permaculture which enable people to apply their skills and gain hands on experience. (We are based in a Mediterranean climate context but skills can be used across the board).
There will be daily theory sessions to set the stage for each activity and different practical sessions each day. This experience will give you the confidence to practice these methods and apply them to your own projects with ease. We will tailor the activities to the needs and preferences of the group, but they can include setting up a food production system, making compost and beneficial micro-organisms, seed saving, natural building, earthworks, food storage methods and much much more! You will also have plenty of opportunities to engage with others and experience all the things that form part of life on a Permaculture farm.

We recommend that participants complete a PDC beforehand as it provides the background knowledge to understand the applied practices. Although the course is also available to those who are interested in Permaculture and would like to get a taste of it.

Dates: 
31 May 2016 to 5 June 2016
