Permaculture, RetroSuburbia, Pattern Language and Theory-U Course
Date: 22nd 23rd June 2019
Location: Thailand

This introductory permaculture course near Bangkok in Thailand will include both the history and theory of permaculture design & retrosuburbia, practical applications of the design methods, as well as diving into the commonalities and overlaps between the old (PDC) and the new (RSC), delivering a retrosuburbia-centric fusion of the best of both approaches.

Books used during the course will include David Holmgren's Retrosuburbia, A Pattern Language by Christopher Alexander, The Essentials of Theory-U by C. Otto Scharmer, and relevant Permaculture texts, including but not limited to Permaculture a Designers' Manual by Bill Mollison.

Because there are dozens of books specifically about permaculture as well as many hundreds indirectly guiding good permaculture design leading up to the ideas in RetroSuburbia, some time will be spent to introduce these so it will be possible to continue to learn after the course.

Our library contains an extensive collection of permaculture books, David Holmgren’s RetroSuburbia, and many other volumes related to these topics that can provide you the additional guidance as mentioned above.

Because this course goes beyond theory, you will be able to immediately apply the aspects of retrosuburbia-centric permaculture you have learned and make choices that will enhance your ecological and sustainable lifestyle. Practical aspects of retrosuburbia-centric permaculture design will be learned and demonstrated onsite for a robust learning experience.

The course will take place at Daruma, which is a permaculture designed educational ecovillage that has existed for over 10 years.


We are an hour away from Bangkok (BKK airport) in Thailand, and visitors can find pickup & onward travel options on our contact page.
