Permaculture for the Rural African Environment PDC

Summary information
field_summary: 

Oriented towards food security development for rural communities, this course focuses on application of Permaculture to semi arid environments in rural Africa, of particular relevance to those wanting to apply PC in the rural developing world. Attention is given to appropriate technology, soil and water harvesting, indigenous knowledge systems and Permaculture in schools as a key focus point for the community, and a chance to influence the coming generation.
We use SFEL’s model PC site as the primary example for demonstration, as well visiting implementation sites on our Permaculture in Konso Schools Project (PKSP) for design examples. (more info on PKSP here: http://permaculture.org.au/2010/03/08/work-of-strawberry-fields-eco-lodg...). We also look at Konso’s renowned indigenous agricultural system and incorporating IKS (Indigenous Knowledge Systems) into Permaculture Design.
