Overview of Intro to Permaculture Program
Beyond agriculture or architecture, but borrowing from both, permaculture is a comprehensive design tool that can be used to better our communities, gardens, and lives. By mimicking nature to heal broken systems (both ecological and social) permaculture provides a variety of approaches for positive change.
In this introductory weekend, Graham Calder of P3 Permaculture will walk participants through the basics of permaculture philosophy and design. The weekend is designed to equip participants with the confidence and ability to identify and overcome design problems that surround us.
The first day of the course will focus on the history, ethics, and principles of permaculture, as well as provide an introduction to its design methods. Examples of permaculture projects from around the world will provide useful case studies.
On day two the group will put theory into practice: together going through the steps of implementing a permaculture design, from observation to the generation of appropriate design strategies for specific local projects.
