INTRO TO PERMACULTURE COURSE IN SOUTH-CENTRAL ONTARIO

If you are interested in learning how to live sustainably and beyond, if you’d like to learn environmentally friendly ways of providing for your own basic needs, if you’re thinking about taking a permaculture design course but are undecided…Then this is the course for you!

Our two day course will cover:
The Permaculture Ethics and Principles

Observation skills building/Site analysis for both urban and rural environments

Design methods-Including a group design project, how to apply these techniques to your situation

Practical examples of permaculture

Forest gardening basics

Plant walk- Forest garden tour, plant identification, polyculture and guild examples

No-tillage, minimum tillage, and minimum/no irrigation techniques

Off-grid power generation, passively heated greenhouse construction

Ecologically friendly building design examples

There will be a mix of classroom and hands on learning using our 100 acre permaculture farm to showcase permaculture in action. There will also be a field trip to a nearby off-grid homestead, and a stop on the way to see a straw bale building.



Spring Course Times:

He has two diploma’s from Fleming College; Ecosystems Management Technician, and Environmental Technician. He received his Permaculture Design Certificate at the Living Centre near London Ontario.

*This is NOT a full Permaculture design course, therefore we cannot award a Permaculture Design Certificate upon completion of the course
