This one-week workshop is a broad and comprehensive introduction to Permaculture,as well as an introduction to how we learn.

By combining these two, this workshop grounds and prepares the participant to further their own learning and growth in, permaculture and regenerative thinking with all the basic skill set to go out and practice permaculture, and bring it to life in one's own way.

This is a very hands-on workshop! One designed to equip the self- learner with all the basic skills to design, set up and maintain one's own permaculture system.

With each afternoon being engaged in multiple projects at Saraya Eco-stay, like:-
Different methods of compost making, soil building, sheet mulching, building garden beds, building Swales, planting seeds, nursery work, and installing and servicing greywater systems are some of the projects we will work on.

In the mornings we will be learning and building the
conceptual framework of permaculture and regenerative thinking, which will include all the basic principles and theories of Permaculture and how to understand Design in Permaculture.

This framework allows you to fit in the hands-on projects into a comprehensive and highly function methodology for living on our planet in positive and mutually beneficial manner. It is
the foundation for creating a healthy and vibrant lifestyle while simultaneously benefiting and healing the natural world that sustains us.

Integrated into our time and work will be an introduction into how we learn. We will set a solid foundation in the understandings of the learning process, as well as how you
as an individual learn best.

Our goal is to help you map out your continued learning on a pathway that stretches into the future, a future of your own design.
