Students will learn all aspects of living and working on a permaculture farm and will learn methods and design applicable to everyday farm situations. They will be fully involved in all farm activities.
There will be no “lecture room” experiences in the Practicals, because all learning will be accompanied by practical experience (learning whilst doing), but it is probably a good idea to carry a notebook and pen around with you!
The Practicals are in blocks, a 2 week Urban Focus Block followed by a Sustainable Building week, and a 4 week Rural Focus Block, with a Water Management week in the middle. Each Practical week runs from Monday to Friday (5 day week).
