Nature’s Gift Permaculture is a training and demonstration facility on a 20 hectare plot situated near the capital city of Lilongwe on Nature’s Gift Farm. Here we are developing designs for ecologically harmonious, efficient and productive living systems and future permaculture designers, trainers and extension workers are welcome to learn and practice.
We use permaculture principles to empower Malawi in community-based food and nutrition security.
Course Dates: June 13th-June 25th, 2011
