Permaculture is a philosophy that mimics the patterns of nature for designing human systems, be it a garden, a farm, building or business.

The Introduction to Permaculture Design weekend is ideal for those who aren’t able to commit to a full design course but want to learn more about permaculture and sustainable living in a short span. Experience is not necessary at all. Although an interest in growing food and sustainable living will help!

The course is based at Petrichor Sustainability Education Center in Gorubathan which is a haven for biodiversity and follows the regenerative principles of permaculture in all practices.

The course comprises of two days of talks, discussions and activities, during which we’ll explore the ethics and philosophy and the basics of Permaculture design. Alongside plenty of outdoor activity, trails and walks to observe natural systems and useful plants, you will learn how to apply nature’s wisdom to our own systems. We will also look at examples of other projects and plots to give an idea of the range of possibilities of Permaculture while also engage in an exercise to design your own plot towards the end of the course.

The Introduction Course is held over a weekend. It is informal and participatory with plenty of time to talk and relax over shared meals.
