‘Permaculture is the design of systems for efficient, productive and regenerative outcomes. It differers from organic gardening in its approach to planning for functional interconnected systems.
This workshop is an overview of Permaculture Design Course topics, such as plant and animal systems, patterns and ecology, water storage and conservation and energy cycling; focusing on exercises that assist in finding the relationships between elements and how this can lead to higher yields in food production and efficient time and resource distribution. Access to property is not essential in order to benefit from Permacultures teachings, as the principles can be applied to many different situations. Learn how to live a life of purpose, fulfilling more of your daily needs in a regenerative manner that can lead to positive planetary outcomes.

Come and learn the theory and practical installation of a simple solar power setup on one of our cute little tiny houses. The system will service the needs of the inhabitant, and let them charge daily devices and evening lighting.
