EXPERIENCE PERMACULTURE IN AFRICA AND CANADA

SEVEN RAVENS PERMACULTURE ACADEMY
FALL COURSE 2015

September 21st to November 14th
(4 weeks on Salt Spring Island, BC + 4 weeks in Tanzania)

Learn how Permaculture is changing lives in Africa and earn your PDC at the same time! This unique course is limited to 8 students and is rapidly filling up...

Starting on Salt Spring Island, you will be immersed for 4 weeks in a hands-on approach to permaculture, learning while exploring how the model can change the lives of those less fortunate. Then travel to Tanzania for 3.5 weeks to the slopes of Mt. Meru where you will join in the process of designing, building and installing a large Permaculture project that will become a training centre for the local people, as well as 200 primary school teachers each year. The teachers will spread the knowledge to roughly 150,000 school children annually.

Following the success of the first two training centres built in Kenya and Uganda, this project will partner with the Maasai and Meru people to help them adapt to the challenges they are facing, such as: food security, water management, and deforestation.

Michael Nickels has been travelling and installing permaculture projects in East Africa for 25 years. During that time, his nurseries have grown millions of trees, addressing deforestation and water catchment. He has established numerous permaculture gardens and food forests at primary schools, teaching thousands of children the positive effects of permaculture, which had a profound impact on academic and athletic performance.

Michael runs the Seven Ravens Permaculture Academy on Salt Spring Island where he lives with his wife Heidi and their family. Their property is an excellent example of permaculture gardens, food forest and sustainable forestry practices.
