Summary: 

This dynamic and interactive course offers comprehensive and powerful teaching methodology distilled from Robina’s 25 years of teaching experience in 10 different countries in Permaculture and Community Development. She was one of Doug Crouch’s mentors early in his journey and the two are excited to reunite and continue to work together, this time in sunny Portugal instead of Oregon or the South Island of New Zealand. Doug’s input is based off of his six years of full time teaching along with project development over the last 15 years in 11 different countries.

Furthermore, this course is for Permaculture design course graduates who want to develop their skills as holistic educators and take steps towards leading courses internationally. The techniques learned enrich oneself to become an empowered, dynamic, and effective educator. This translates to any teaching field whether it be PDC’s or short courses on the myriad of topics that encompass Permaculture. Furthermore it is relevant to both experienced and aspiring teachers as we wish to mentor you just as Robina did for Doug.

Summary: 

The world is waking up to climate change and other effects of unsustainable growth. We know permaculture has answers, so if you've ever wanted to inspire others but haven't had the confidence this course is for you. This course is suitable for all abilities: both apprentice & experienced teachers & also for those who have just completed their Permaculture Design course (PDC). During the course we will be focusing on the tools & techniques for teaching & facilitating permaculture learning & the practicalities of convening & running courses. We won't be revisiting the topics on a PDC in any depth and so it is recommended that if your permaculture knowledge is a bit rusty that you do some preparatory background reading before the course.
