Course Type: Destination Permaculture in Dominican republic, 17 day PDC with TreeYo Permaculture
Summary: Another unique Permaculture course is in the works for the Dominican Republic from the teaching team of TreeYo. Check out our site to learn more about the PDC and the teaching team. http://treeyopermaculture.com/
The course will be held in the farming village of Los Brazos on the north coast not far from the tourist town of Cabarete. The farm is nicely located to give a rural but easy access to many places and destinations and boasts great biodiversity.

This course includes the following topics and more:
- Ethics, Principles, and Methods of Design
- Water harvesting, conservation, purification, and revitalization
- Trees, reforestation, and nutrient recycling
- Soil classification, biological interaction, and remineralization
- Climatic Factors and their influences on the design
- Tropical, Dryland, and Temperate influences on vegetation, housing, and earthworks
- Nutrition, fermentation, and local food systems
- Transition Towns – emerging and evolving approach to community level sustainability

Our aim as Permaculture trainers is to creatively facilitate a learning process that empowers people in Permaculture design through experiential learning and hands-on training. Each student completes the course with a site design and presentation based on the skills and knowledge accumulated throughout the two weeks.

Dates: June 13-29th, 2013

The course will be led by TreeYo Permaculture facilitators Doug Crouch and guest teachers.
