Just wanted to let you all know about an exciting course we have pulled together in Haiti following the International Convergence. This course will focus on design techniques for the harshest of environments where earth repair is really needed.

Advanced permaculture design course in Wasteland Regeneration ~ Re-establishing Abundant and Resilient Ecosystems on Barren, Neglected, and Abused lands.

Location: Anse-a-Pitre, Haiti Dates: December 6-10, 2013

Site: Sadhana Forest, Anse-a-Pitre, Haiti, www.sadhanaforesthaiti.org

Getting Here: We suggest flying to Santo Domingo in the Dominican Republic and then a bus ride to Pedernales. From there Sadhana Forest Haiti will come pick you up.

Number of Participants: Limited to 20

Learning Environment: In Sadhana Forest Haiti they practice an eco-friendly way of life including veganism, solar energy, dry composting toilets, and different Permaculture techniques. This is an ideal setting to experience Permaculture unfolding on a new site so we are very happy they have opened their site to us!

Cost: $750 USD. Includes three vegan meals a day, camping and basic accommodations, and instruction.

This looks amazing. And really reasonably priced too. However it's a completely different climate than I'm used to. Not only that, but I should probably get a PDC under my belt before going to an advanced class

That is true on many levels, but many of the underlying themes are transferable. Once you spend time on this site and see what is possible you will look at the opportunities in your own area very differently. Plus many resources will be shared for urban and rural sites. many of the participants are from North America and some from Haiti and other similar countries.
If this really interests you we are happy to try to find a way to make it accessible. Contact me at steve@low-energy-future.com if you want to explore this option.
