I am currently working on a curriculum focussed on Practical Permaculture.
The main aim of this is to bridge the gap between theory and practice of Permaculture, mainly design. Though the courses/workshops are aimed towards introducing a whole-systems approach to design regenerative landscapes, the curriculum is so planned that, anyone, irrespective of occupation, age and background will benefit from exploring these.
The curriculum will be in the form of either a series of one/two day workshops or will be a series of short courses. It is so planned that all the workshops/courses will link up to form the full curriculum of a PDC , each will be independent of the other and participants can choose to complete all or a few of these workshops/courses. In fact, some of the series can be attended without completing any of the others.
The curriculum will include theory and hands-on experiences. The online support around the workshop/course will include reference material for the participants to explore in the comfort zone of their personal spaces.
I am striving to also include trainings for necessary relevant skills like nursery management, working with bamboo, irrigation, water management, grafting and pruning of plants and the like.
What I am looking for
If you think you can contribute/collaborate with me for the above in any way, if you have special skills that you think you could teach and could be useful to participants of such courses, or you hold courses and workshops for such skills and would like to collaborate, you are most welcome to drop in a note with details and I will be happy to work on it and include it in the curriculum, if it fits in.
Even if you have any ideas, please write an email and I will be glad to have suggestions.
If you are exploring permaculture or would like to know more about courses and workshops, simply drop in a line…
