This course will delve deep into how we can use permaculture to create rich beneficial relationships between people, communities and their surroundings, including how to grow food, build houses and create economies, while also enriching and taking care of nature.
Special emphasis will be put in creating a temporary community for the duration of the course, where we use social permaculture tools to make sure everyone's needs are met, so we can all enjoy living together in a joyful, supportive learning environment.
We use a hybrid gift economy, where participants are invited to contribute what they can afford and are willing to pay. To cover the ideal training costs we need to raise on average €350 per person. However we invite you to propose how much you would like to contribute (ideally between €200 and €700
The accommodation costs are by donation, but we imagine an average of €5 donation per day will meet the needs of the hosts to accommodate everyone.
To ensure we keep the food costs and quality at a level the students require, we are adopting the tried and tested self organising method. This means we will ask you to either bring enough food ingredients to cover your food needs for the duration of the course or bring a mix of food and cash. The food could include home grown veg, grains, preserves, etc.
The course will be in English, and if necessary we will do simultaneous translators for those who need it.
