Regenerating Local Ecosystems through Self-Reliance Permaculture Introduction Course
15. Juni 2021 –16:30 - 20. Juni 2021 –15:00250EUR – 500EUR
In a holistic and interactive way we will learn about the Permaculture design and its ethics, principles. In a small group and with lots of hands-on experience we discover some of the basics of vegetable gardening, water management and forest gardening. Apart from that, the course focuses on the potential of regenerating local ecosystems in times of climate instability. At the end of the course, you will look at landscapes with different eyes, know how to start a no-dig garden bed, and enjoy making great compost. Course language will be English, with the possibility to switch to German.
The course will take place in a beautiful Permaculture community garden close to the Bodensee in Southern Germany. We will spend time outside, and in colder moments we will stay in a cosy, heated yurt. We will sleep in our own tents, use compost toilets and solar-heated outdoor showers.
We ask for a sliding scale contribution between 250 and 500€.
This covers the course fee, three organic plantbased meals a day and accommodation. Paying
towards the higher end of the sliding scale allows us to welcome people to join this course with limited financial means. We don’t want money to be an obstacle, please contact us in case you cannot find yourself on this scale.
