This Permaculture course is being held on a beautiful site nestled in a valley, located 3 hours from Bangalore. The Timbaktu Kutumbam Foundation Trust (TKF) was formed in the year 2009, with the aim of regenerating a piece of land and begin organic farming. The 100 acres of land has over the years come to be called 'Kailasam', named informally after the Sri Kailasam temple located at the far end of the site. The farm at present is growing millets, fruits trees and vegetables, and there is an on-going effort to regenerate and revitalize the land, by improving soil fertility, increasing water availability, and introducing local indigenous varieties of forest trees . Experiments are also being done on Biodynamic Farming methods. Permaculture was introduced to the farm quite recently and so Kailasam is in the beginning stages of Permaculture design & implementation.
We are excited to host a Permaculture Design Certificate Course being taught by EIGHT other certified Instructors from India and Sri Lanka with support by Rico Zook, who will also present. This is a one of kind PDC, with multiple teachers from varied parts of India, coming together to support, teach and learn together with our participants. Each of the teachers is an upcoming Indian Permaculture instructor and practitioner and it is our privilege to host such a unique course in Kailasam. Many of these people are already building successful permaculture practices, from consulting to designing to implementing a wide variety of projects.
