Permaculture Design Course, Sweden, with Graham Bell, author of The Permaculture Way

(PDC) Permaculture Design Course
Summary information


An excellent opportunity to learn from one of the foremost authorities on permaculture, Graham Bell. We are thrilled to welcome him as a teacher on our course in Sweden this year. Graham has taught all over the world, and hosted/ worked with some of the top permaculture designers, educators and authors - including Bill Mollison and David Holmgren.

A wonderful summer course in a wonderful location! Come and learn how to approach environmental regeneration with excitement and positivity with some of the loveliest hosts you'll find on the planet! You'll leave looking at the world in a new light, with a sharpened resolve for environmental action by working with, rather than against, nature and with the foundations to be the change you wish to see.

During the course several of the 30 varieties of tomatoes growing on site will be harvested - a great opportunity to learn about and yield extension. It's also a marvel for the eyes! Expect excellent vegetarian food.

Ekbacka Gård is a lovely self sustainable farm set on 20ha and located 30 kilometres from Kalmar and 15 km from the Baltic coast. Using permaculture techniques and biodynamical farming it is a fabulous example of food production and sustainable living. Since 2006 the farm has been run by Bo, Katrin and the help of their 5 children and volunteers. They added their animals (horses, goats, chickens, dogs, cats) and their dream of developing an eco village. This is a great opportunity for students to see a real project where permaculture is combined successfully with community and family life.
