Summary: 

Looking deeper into ‘Pattern Understanding’ and its applications within Permaculture, as well as exploring the importance of the ‘Living Wisdom’ of the Indigenous People and Nature itself. Available to groups of 10 or more.

From fractals to flow-forms, from proportion to diversity, from circles to spirals, from the microcosm to the macrocosm, from me to us, from pi to phi, from explosions to implosions and from unity to infinity. This course will be exploring how nature puts herself together, from the smallest relationships of matter and energy all the way to the hugest possible expressions of form that we can see or imagine. We also explore the similarities over these different scales through time and space, and see how these different perspectives combine to form an interconnected universal view.

It is not necessary to have completed your PDC or diploma in Permaculture. But please come with some understanding of Nature as the reality that we live in, that we are part of it, and that life is a gift. We are trying to study natures archetypes to understand the small pieces of the bigger picture as well as the ‘bigger picture’ itself, the Whole. We are not learning the secrets of Nature to work against Nature, but instead we are trying to use them to aid pre-existing natural processes and rehabilitate lost or destroyed ecosystems.

Many people find it hard to know how to recreate the randomness and anarchy of natural patterns and arrangements, which in its essence is actually profound order. This course will include many visual and practical elements including tips for ‘daily-life’ about how to bring this information into the designs of everything that we do. The theoretical classes will be balanced by a good selection of outdoor activities including designing on the land, with hands-on and interactive design processes.

The main teacher for this course will be Ras John Cresswell together with three guest teachers.

The PDC covers sustainable living systems for a wide variety of landscapes and climates. It includes the application of permaculture principles to food production, home design & construction, energy conservation and generation, and explores the social and economic structures that support a culture that cares for the planet and all its inhabitants.

Beyond that you will be taking part in workshops of the many aspects of Regenerative Agriculture and eco building. These workshops will be an introduction on subjects like Keyline design, Holistic management, animal behaviour, animal care, cob building and could involve Rocket stove building or Cob oven building. This way you can experience the systems put into practice by implementing what you have learned and getting hands on experience.

Living on the farm learning and being involved daily while being part of a group of people will give you hands on experience in community living and you will be guided through personal growth and the possibilities of building your own project.

Summary: 

We have created a path where you will be immersed in our community and learn intensively through a series of classes, “hands-on” sessions, intimate walk-and-talk activities, interactive exercises and more. Our vision aims to connect the participants to a well-developed permaculture site and local community, while delving into multiple topics to get a deeper understanding in holistic system thinking. Through this extended and diverse experience, we aim to seek a feeling of empowerment within ourselves while gaining confidence in regenerative design techniques, which ultimately leads to having a positive impact on our current world situation.

In the past 7 years, both Escola da Terra (Waldorf education) and Terra Alta have been involved in the education of hundreds of people that have initiated projects that are still active and thriving around the globe. We expect this course to be a continuation of that and to be an intensive and immersive learning experience.

This program includes a 2-week PDC – Permaculture Design Course – with an internationally recognized certification awarded to graduates. Furthermore, the program will circulate around the topic of water, a most essential part of managing a holistic permaculture system. The course will also feature a broader perspective on social permaculture, regenerative agriculture, natural building, whole systems thinking and the application and relationship of these fields within permaculture.
