This is the annual Permaculture Design Certificate course we hold each year in Cloughjordan Ecovillage - which itself was designed with permaculture and includes over 50 eco-homes, community woodlands, renewable energy production, community amphitheater, a wood-fired bakery, a digital fabrication lab (Fab Lab), research gardens and a community farm.
Each year we invite special guest tutors to share their expertise, and 2017 sees the return of Albert Bates, the founder of the Ecovillage Training Center at The Farm in Tennessee and past president of Global Ecovillage Network and Aranya, leading UK Permaculture teacher and designer and author of Permaculture Design: A Step-by-Step Guide. Aranya will be coming to us online; he hosted one of last years most popular, inspiring and interactive sessions on design.
