5 Day Permaculture Practical Design Course

Permaculture Practical Design Course – In A Semi-Arid Environment

15th – 19th September 2016

A series of 1 day workshops held over a 5 day course that will change the way you look at farming, food production and the world around you.

The aim of these workshops (course) is to provide farmers, backyard gardeners and individuals living in geographically remote and semi-arid climates the opportunity to reconnect with their own health and a regenerative, sustainable food system through the practical application of permaculture. These 5 x 1 day workshops make up a comprehensive course that will mean participants can return home and apply their learnings with confidence.

With a focus on holistic practices that include water harvesting, animals and incorporating trees this is a course that will help farmers living in harsh climatic conditions look at new ways of mitigating risk as well as improving production and diversifying income.

Note – spaces limited to 30 people only
