Permaculture – linking people and place
This internationally-certified Permaculture Design Course introduces the remarkable potential of Permaculture to address a broad range of issues, most obviously environmental (garden, farm, apartment or landscape), but no less significantly, social and financial contexts. The course follows the full curriculum, determined by over 40 years of observation and application, essential to enable a wise and comprehensive understanding of design.
It explores all the theoretical and philosophical themes involved, as well as practical activities and demonstration exercises to integrate and clarify this complex integrated design system. Since the concepts for creating such designs are broad and numerous, this course uses a maximum diversity of practical examples to clarify concepts and enable participants to adapt to diverse climates, landscapes and social situations.
€700 Covers the fees for tutors, site and materials for the workshop. Participants may be eligible for a grant, to understand more contact your national Permaculture organisation to understand if they received the Erasmus + funding for a grant towards the course and costs.
