Pay what you can Permaculture Design Course 2016-2

A course by Erle Rahaman-Noronha

Come join us at Wa Samaki Ecosystems (www.wasamakipermaculture.org) Monday to Friday for 2 weeks between July 25th and Aug 5th. Learn about designing and building sustainable systems that harvest energy, trap water, grow food, support wildlife and biodiversity and recycle all wastes. Be the solution and not the problem!

We attemted this format in July 2015 and May 2016 with amazing results. Lots of motivated people showed up. We normally charge TT$4000 (approx $US600) to take a 10 day PDC . This is normally a non residential course but self sufficient camping is now possible with an outdoor shower, compost toilets and access to a shared kitchen. The cost for these facilities is TT$200 for the 10 days and goes towards camp expenses and the volunteers helping campers. We do not receive any external funding and the workshop is normally run on the porch of one of the instructors. People have also complained that the price we charge is unaffordable although it is probably half of what other facilities charge anywhere in the region not including flights and travel to those facilities.

With this in mind we are offering this PDC as a no frills ‘Pay what you can’. We ask that everyone attending come with their own meals and snacks and the manual will be digitally shared on any memory stick the participant provides . You must attend 90% of the course including the presentation to qualify to get your certificate. That means showing up by 8.30am every morning and attending all the classes for that day for a minimum of 9 days. Whatever you would like to pay for the workshop, based on your means, will be accepted on the last day of the PDC. We do not receive funding from any external organization.

We will again charge a non refundable TT$650 (US$100) reservation fee to hold your spot. You just pay the balance of what you would like to pay at the end of the workshop.

Curso de Agricultura Natural y Forestación

A course by Gaia

Buscamos lograr en los participantes una comprensión desde la experiencia, para poder replicar el entramado complejo y total circundante a los agrosistemas. Las variadas, intrincadas y sagradas interconexiones de lo vivo son el principal objeto de estudio de este curso.

Esta es una oportunidad de entrenamiento teórico práctico de puesta en marcha y manejo de ecosistemas productivos integrados. Huertos, montes frutales y sistemas agroforestales completos serán los puntos recorridos.

Buscamos que a través del trabajo en los bosques, montes frutales y huertos integrados al bosque ya establecidos en la Ecovilla Gaia desde hace 19 años, se pueda tener una comprensión profunda de los fenómenos involucrados y las herramientas necesarias para desarrollar y manejar estos ecosistemas productores en diferentes condiciones y geografías.

The Course Concept
Have the theory but need some practice?
​​
During this course we’ll be out in the field surveying real plots of land. Using the information we gather from surveying we’ll show you how you can make informed decisions that result in a design that is truly regenerative, productive and economically and ecologically viable.

We’ll introduce the fundamentals of regenerative design to you within an organised and structured framework. You’ll be working in small teams of 5 – 7 people to map, survey and work on designs for the plots. We’ll also come together in larger groups to carry out practicals such as earthworks, compost building and pond building. We aim to balance field work, hands-on practicals, theory and exercises to provide you with a solid foundation to start designing and implementing your own projects.
COURSE AGENDA
Picture
Balkan Ecology Project land stewardship plots we will be working on.
Why take this course?
​
​Experience hands on, step by step processes for designing a site ranging from surveying the land to learning how to make design decisions based on the results of your surveying.
Learn from an experienced team that have extensive experience working with clients from all over the world, at an established site where you can interact with the course material on the ground.
Access post-course online support :- We love to hear from past participants of our courses and are open to providing feedback and support.
Enjoy our unique location which is a great place to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life and recharge in the tranquility of rural Bulgaria. It’s a slow paced relaxed environment, and although the course is very active the atmosphere cannot help but be absorbed.
All profits from this course will be used for purchasing land with high ecological value currently under threat from intensive agricultural development. Once under our stewardship, the land is managed with respect for its inherent value and vital ecosystem services.

In and around the venue

Where will you be?
The course is hosted in the town of Shipka on the foothills of the Central Balkan Mountains in the Rose Valley, Bulgaria. The area boasts high levels of biodiversity, beautiful countryside and historical sites of global, cultural and scientific significance. Sessions will be split between a lecture hall, in the field and at our home site – 9 year old residential property with an established, highly productive forest garden composed of over 400 species of plants. The site is a good example of small scale intensive ecological design and includes examples of rainwater harvesting, gray water reed beds, wildlife ponds, multiple composting facilities and small scale plant nursery. We practice various methods of biological vegetable production including guild planting and crop rotation, and rear pigs, chickens and rabbits from this property.

If traveling from abroad perhaps you would like to extend your stay in the region? There is plenty to do including hiking, biking, paragliding, various wildlife tours and archaeological excursions, or you could just soak up the timeless vibes of rural Bulgaria. If you would like to get some hands on experience after the course you’re welcome to join in our polyculture market garden study. There are also various projects nearby that are open to volunteers. You can contact Dimo from Wastenomore (wastenomorefarm(at)gmail.com) to find out more.
