Weekend 4 Designing Your Permaculture Garden


Course Overview

Thursday Evenings
Each workshop starts on Thursday evenings where we will meet and greet and set the scene for the weekend. We will then share a meal, gather around the camp fire, share stories, songs, stargaze and socialise with your fellow permies before the course commences the next day.
Friday & Saturday  
Designing your permaculture Garden
It’s time to apply your learnings over the past four workshops and immerse yourself in the detail design development of selected households and properties from the group.
Synthesizing your understanding of the ethics, principles and practices of Permaculture to guide your decisions and facilitate your client’s dreams into reality.
Saturday Afternoon 
It’s time to unveil your plans, outline your rationale and share your creative responses as we peer review and critique your designs and decision-making processes with care.
Saturday Evening
Let’s Celebrate!
Tonight the night for a feast, fun and laughter as the course draws near completion. Enjoy the variety night and share a gift or talent through song, music, drama skits, storytelling and or anything that celebrate the groups achievements!
On our final day we broaden the aperture beyond the backyard and consider the role of Permaculture in shaping the socio-economic and political fabric of local communities and the bio region. There will be tales of transformation and social Permaculture in action locally and abroad.
A guest speaker will takes us to another level of social Permaculture, delving into the dynamics of Eco-villages, neighbourhoods and the realm of intentional communities.
Hooray, you’ve made it to the end of the course, as hearts and minds turn towards home, family, friends and community, a world awaiting and the wonder of where to from here.
You will be welcomed into the worldwide community of Permaculture that you are a part of. Together we will share our aspirations, intentions and local actions we can contribute to as a community of ‘Permies’ in the bio-region.
