Permaculture Design Certificate Course

A course by Permaculture Community

At Rak Tamachat we don’t believe in rushing anything and especially a life changing event like your PDC. We believe that a three week Permaculture design course offers much more relaxed atmosphere to take in Permaculture in all its abundance. At Rak Tamachat we use the weekends to work on our personal projects of interest, work in the garden, visit local attractions or just read a book and relax. It also gives students an opportunity to rest their minds and reflect on what they are learning, travel or explore the local village and surrounding countryside or join us practicing Permaculture and truly living the Permaculture lifestyle. It takes time to shake of the shackles of society and see the real reality.

Permaculture Design Certificate Course

A course by Permaculture Community

At Rak Tamachat we don’t believe in rushing anything and especially a life changing event like your PDC. We believe that a three week Permaculture design course offers much more relaxed atmosphere to take in Permaculture in all its abundance. At Rak Tamachat we use the weekends to work on our personal projects of interest, work in the garden, visit local attractions or just read a book and relax. It also gives students an opportunity to rest their minds and reflect on what they are learning, travel or explore the local village and surrounding countryside or join us practicing Permaculture and truly living the Permaculture lifestyle. It takes time to shake of the shackles of society and see the real reality.

Plants in Permaculture (Spring)

A course by Kinstone Academy of Applied Permaculture

This in-depth course is about all things “plant”. It is one of our most popular classes! Come and learn from plant expert and Permaculture designer Wayne Weiseman, one of the authors of “Integrated Forest Gardening”. You will learn to identify trees and plants and come to an understanding of their significance in the landscape and delineate how to use plants for food, medicine and utility. The curriculum includes plant guilds, food forests, basic biology, basic botany, effects of weather on vegetation, interactions with animals, and the processes of various habitats and ecosystems (including farm ecosystems). We will observe trees and plants in their natural environment, and through observation, find methods to employ them as windbreaks, shelterbelts, habitat for animals, and companions for other plants that contribute to health and increased yields. We will learn about plant propagation, grafting, seed saving, food, medicinal and utility uses of plants and more. We will explore prairie, woodland, savanna, pasture, gardens, farm fields, and other ecosystems found at or near Kinstone. This course consists of one 5-day session. Please dress for the weather (wear layers!) and bring boots and a raincoat.
