A typical day will consist of some lecture time, field observations, practical application, working on your own design, group discussions, and time for personal reflection. We will have movies and lectures in the evenings. The topics we cover during the 10 days will follow Mollison’s outline and cover topics like:
-Principles and concepts of permaculture
- The Design process
- Understanding patterns
- Vegetation and Ecology
- Practical application in different settings and scales
We will also address some of the recent developments in permaculture and focus on permaculture as a way to address climate change and social structures.
At the end of the program, successful participants will qualify for an internationally recognized Permaculture Design Certificate.
