Permaculture Design Exercise Weekend

Posted by Hege Iren Wiken about 9 years ago

Still places left on the Permaculture Design Exercise Weekend in beautiful Hardanger! A great course for those who wish to do permaculture in practice to learn more!

Permaculture Design Exercise Weekend

«Students will receive an introduction to Permaculture design before they actively practice it in our future forest garden. This way, we learn by doing. This course is very interactive and participatory. Everyone will get a chance to practice their design skills, while learning about the permaculture approach to gardening, construction and general infrastructure planning. It is useful for people who not only need to hear about permaculture, but also do it in order to better understand it»

 This course walks you through the steps of the design process for a piece of land. These methods will be showcased and practiced, using the property Alvastien as an example. As a result of this course, the participants will have conducted a thorough site analysis as well as produce various design options for a food forest, an example of something that can be expected from a professional permaculture consultation.

Teachers bio : 

Mihail Kossev (www.mihailkossev.weebly.com)

Mihail is a permaculture designer, educator and filmmaker. He received his Bachelor’s Degree from New York University, in Film Production in 2007, then a Master’s in Education from CUNY in 2009, and has since made a career of integrating artistic expression, community learning and «re-skilling» throughout Europe and North America. He received his Permaculture Design Certificate from Bill Mollison and Geoff Lawton in 2010, and has gathered professional experience with various ecological projects, some young, others established. This has enriched his skills in helping groups work together towards a common ecological design. He discovered the comfort and luxury of tipi living two years ago, when he returned to Bulgaria from the US. Since then, he has put together various tipi constructions for courses, festivals and private clients and is excited to be spreading this skill to other like-minded people at home and abroad.
