The theory component of the course is taught using a combination of Bill Mollison’s book ‘Introduction to Permaculture’ & Ro Morrows book 'Earth Users Guide to Permaculture" and highlights how to design, construct and manage a permaculture rural or urban property that is productive, ‘eco-friendly’, organic, healthy and low maintenance. You will learn about the systems, techniques and strategies that will help you to create and enjoy your own piece of permaculture paradise.
The Practical component is demonstrated on Limestone Permaculture Farm where many of the essential components and their functions can be seen in action.
The course also outlines Permaculture Principles & Ethics which provides a basic understanding of the environment around us along with designing systems for food, animals, structures and community.
