On-Site Permaculture Design Training

Summary information
Online Course: 
not online
Summary: 

This training has been developed to assist participants in understanding how to take the basic principles of permaculture design and apply them on a land-based project. While a few days is insufficient time to fully observe a site and come up with a design that optimises energy use there, a lot can still be learned. Hence this training takes participants through an albeit brief hands-on land-based design process on a real site, bringing permaculture theory to life. It is useful for anyone stewarding land, from gardeners to smallholders and farmers. For more details see website.

Dates: 
6 September 2014 to 10 September 2014
More dates and times information: 
Five full days.
