This retreat is for those of you who aspire to use the permaculture curriculum effectively in their field or profession, including permaculture classes and retreats, childhood development, graduate studies, community organization, politics, architecture, engineering, and design. This retreat is designed to increase your effectiveness as a spokesperson and practitioner of permaculture.
In examining the richness of biodiversity we discover fundamental functions of patterning and the origins of form. Permaculture Design is not about gardening but the garden does have many lessons for us. This core curriculum has often been misunderstood and parts overlooked in many design courses. Practitioners must create familiarity with participatory design and help students make the translation of using permaculture design in the natural landscape to the landscape of culture and social dynamics. Curriculum will help make the translation of using permaculture design in the natural landscape as well as in the cultural landscape. Permaculture Design is critical to any collaborative community efforts and permaculture’s most important application just may lie within business and community development.
Attendees will learn a cohesive approach to Principles & Methodologies of Design.
Systems Thinking will reinforce using Permaculture Principles to plan, design and manage the home and landscape as well as community and economic developments, at any scale.
Design Principles and Patterning will be revisited using human dynamics and communication alongside the more familiar earth repair applications and exercises.
Techniques that will assist Permaculturists convey the importance of using the principles and their direct relevance to community and economic development.
