Permaculture is a design philosophy that allows you to design a sustainable life, or even beyond sustainable. It is also described as: “Permaculture is a dance with nature – in which nature leads.”. During this course you will get acquainted with permaculture. It is a broad introduction, but also practically applicable. You will develop basic knowledge and ecological insight with which you can apply permaculture in your own garden and your own life. And you’ll learn how to cooperate with nature instead of working against it.
The course consists of four days and every day we delve into two themes.
Themes we cover:
• Permaculture introduction
• The wonderful world of plants
• Observation and analysis
• Climate and micro-climate
• Patterns in nature
• Social permaculture
There is a great diversity of teaching methods in the course, a mix of theory, practical assignments and interaction, and there is also a lot of room for questions.
