We’ve found a great location that will graphically demonstrate the issues of small scale community development and dealing with global changes in climate, economy and ecology. Its remoteness will enable participants to see their own environment through new and refreshed eyes. See also: Objectives & Benefits.
We’ve also attracted a great team of teachers and support staff with international experience and local knowledge. See: Teaching Team.
The course will cover the standard permaculture curriculum using creative teaching methods and lots of practical field work. Graduates will receive the internationally recognised PDC certificate, your passport to advanced permaculture education, networking and your entry into professional permaculture teaching and design work. There will also be ample free time so you can explore this exotic location at your leisure. See also: Programme.
