This ten-day, Permaculture In Action (PIA) course at Zaytuna Farm, picks up where the Permaculture Design Certificate (PDC) course leaves off.
The PDC, as we teach it, is an intensive theoretical journey into the essential core concepts and design elements of all aspects of Permaculture. Students of this course undoubtedly emerge inspired and with access to incredible new perspectives on the world around us. This large volume of theory is necessary and teaches the student all of the fundamental components of Permaculture as an entire system.
Which leads us to the most common questions coming out from the PDC
“How do I get started?”
“How do I develop the skills and confidence I need to get going?”
Our Permaculture in Action course is the answer we have created to these questions.
This thorough ten-day training takes the student through some of the core systems we currently run on the farm: renewable energy systems, farm irrigation, roof water harvest drinking water systems, mixed animal systems, crop production, nursery, organic fertiliser, food forest and farm forestry along with waste system management.
Over the course of the two weeks you will also learn how to consult, design, teach and implement aid work.
This course is a practical course with a small amount of class time. Around 80% of the time will be working directly in the field gaining the hands-on experience in applied Permaculture.
