Are you looking for a way to create a more sustainable, resilient, and harmonious living environment? Do you want to learn how to design and implement ecological solutions that can benefit yourself, your community, and the planet? If so, you might be interested in joining our permaculture design course!
Permaculture is an integrated approach to designing human settlements and agricultural systems that mimic the patterns and relationships found in nature. Permaculture aims to create systems that are productive, efficient, diverse, adaptable, and self-regulating, while minimising waste, energy use and environmental impact.
Our permaculture design course is a comprehensive and practical introduction to the principles, ethics, methods, and techniques of permaculture. You will learn how to apply permaculture to various contexts and scales, from urban gardens and homesteads to farms and communities. You will also gain hands-on experience in designing and implementing permaculture projects, as well as participating in group activities, discussions, and presentations.
The course is based on the internationally recognized curriculum of the Permaculture Design Certificate (PDC), which covers topics such as:
– Permaculture ethics and principles
– Design process and methods
– Site analysis and assessment
– Soil health and fertility
– Water harvesting and management
– Plants and plant guilds
– Food forests and agroforestry
– Animal systems and integration
– Climate and microclimate
– Energy and appropriate technology
– Built environment and natural building
– Social permaculture and community development
– And much more!
The course is suitable for anyone who wants to learn more about permaculture and how to apply it in their own lives. Whether you are a beginner or an experienced practitioner, you will find something new and inspiring in this course. You will also have the opportunity to network with other like-minded people and join a growing global movement of permaculture practitioners.
The course will run for 2 weeks, starting from October 24 to November 5, 2023. The course will be held at Fambidzanai Permaculture Training Centre, at No.4 Dovedale Road in Mt Hampden, Harare. The course fee is $405 USD, which includes all the materials, support, food, accommodation, and certification.
