Full Permaculture Design Course

A course by Permaculture Community

Permaculture is a design methodology.

In simple terms we learn from nature how to manage systems well which provide for all human needs. That may start with growing our own food. But it surely includes how we manage all our energy usage- building homes and workplaces which are energy efficient and delightful, working together to make sustainable management of all our society needs. Creating trade structures which are fair for all. Looking after our people, our land and all living things. Leaving the world at least as healthy and abundant as we found it, whilst treading lightly on the planet in our journey. Bringing wealth creation to the places it is most needed with consequent improvement to health and happiness. The permaculture design course is an unforgettable and life-changing experience full of fascinating insights, helping you realise your life’s dreams, and supporting others to do the same.

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.
