It gives us great pleasure to announce that for the first time ever the acclaimed Permaculture expert Peter Cow will be arriving in Greece to host an international Permaculture Design Course (PDC) at the beautiful location of Elpidohori (Hopeland) in the south of Greece. Taking part in this course helps us fund a “Permaculture Caravan” that will take Peter around Greece for 3 weeks doing talks and Permablitz events FOR FREE!
The PDC will take place from 18th to 29th of June, 2014 on location at Elpidohori (Hopeland), Argos, Greece.
Full 12-day syllabus and Permaculture Design Certificate upon completion.
Learn to observe patterns and principles in the wild, in self and in society, and explore how to use them in designing and decision-making – from house construction, to gardens, to community development.
Learn how and where to use the techniques, and get support in choosing or creating the most appropriate ones.
Learning methods used are so diverse and well-ranged that they cater to visual, auditory, kinaesthetic and verbal dominant learners.
Course starts with an introduction to permaculture: its thinking, principles and design tools.
We then go into practical solutions for all areas of life: water systems, gardening and landscaping, lifestyle choices and self resilience, the built environment, community development, financial systems and designing in different climate zones.
Towards the end, we carry out a group design project to explore and integrate the design processes more fully.
This particular course will have a focus on community development and water harvesting/storing in the landscape, alongside the traditional wide ranging, life changing PDC curriculum, covering land design, eco building, social permaculture, food forests, soil improvement, working in different climate zones and much more.
This is a course that requires no prior knowledge, no special skills or experience; it is available to everyone!
Attend this course and help us help others!
We feel the need to give something back to the people of this country who are going through difficult times at the moment and are in need of new skills, but cannot afford to pay for them. So we decided to use the profits from this PDC to fund a ‘Permaculture Caravan‘ that will take Peter around the country for three weeks, spreading the word on sustainable living. This has never been done before and we are counting on your support to make it work!
So come join us create a better world, for you, for us, and for many many more...
