Course Fee: From NT14,250 – NT28500
February 14-28, 2011


Join our Permaculture Design Course and learn how to create harmonious human settlements by mimicking nature’s patterns.

In this course you will acquire the practical tools to transform spaces in your homes, backyards, neighbourhoods and farms into gardens and forests of food bursting with the abundance of nature’s gifts in a way that builds soil fertility, attracts wildlife and produces healthy organic food.
You will also develop an understanding on how to work with the wisdom of nature to create simple systems that work together to conserve water and energy, reduce waste, regenerate the social and ecological landscape, cultivate self-reliance and save you money!
Permaculture can be used in both urban and rural settings, and can be applied in your apartment balcony, in your backyard, or in a broad acre farm. There’s a solution for everyone!
