Permaculture Intro Weekend Course

Permaculture Intro Weekend Course

10th - 13th of September 2021

Immerse yourself in the world of permaculture and spend a weekend on our beautiful farm!

This course is for you, if you feel, that permaculture is the way to go, but you miss the good basics of knowledge and practice.

We will support each other in a gentle transformation towards sustainable and positive future. Connect with nature, ourselves and other people through experience and practical tools. Permaculture is for everyone, who is open to see the problems as solutions, not only for farmers. No matter where and how you live, no matter what your limitations are. We will learn, that each of us has precious skills, that could be used in our daily life and help the planet earth to live in abundance.

During the course we introduce you to the permaculture world, its main principals and ethics. You will find out about gardening techniques, natural building, social and community aspect, technology and other topics. To make it fun and effective, we blend theory with hands-on practice. On the day of arrival there will be a tour over the farm, when we explain the land, as well as  how we live and what did we built up.
