Keyline Design is a complete design system for landscapes, that we integrate with Holistic Management and Permaculture Design in various settings and climates. This 5 Day training is designed to empower participants in all aspects of the late P.A.Yeoman's incredible work and leave you confident how to apply this design sequence and topographic patterning of farms and projects in any climate zone. As part of our 10 Week Internship this training also allows you to join an International group learning & implementing diverse regenerative systems at Scandinavia's first Keyline designed farm. You can read about Keyline Design in the context of our farm here http://www.ridgedalepermaculture.com/keyline-design.html

During your stay we will cover all aspects of Keyline Design, as well as Field & Design work at the farm.
