PERMACULTURE COURSE

Permaculture Introduction & PDC at Lalaland May 2021

Course Overview

Building soil – Building community – Building resilience

No previous experience is required! Just openness and willingness to become part fo the regeneration movement!

 

Permaculture is a design method for sustainable human settlements that aims at integrating human activities in fully functioning ecosystems able to self regulate and support Life in all its forms.

Its core ethics are Care for the Earth, Care for the People and Fair Share and its principles allow us to live a regenerative life and can be applied to any environment, from small apartments to big lands to entire countries. Most importantly, Permaculture is a real philosophy of life that can support you as an individual to make conscious choices to reconnect to a true way of living. You are not separate from what is around you and stepping back into the web of life is the best choice we can make!

What is a Permaculture Design Course? ​

This is a 72 hours certified course that covers all aspects of Permaculture as detailed by Bill Mollison (co-founder of the movement and author of "Permaculture: a designer's manual"). The course will touch all elements required to design a complete human settlement and will include topics such as food production, resource management, project 

management, soil, agroforestry, animal systems, appropriate technology, people systems and social Permaculture.

The course will include a final design project and the handover of the PDC certificate upon completion and presentation of the final design.
