3rd to 18th May 2014, Permaculture Design Certification course, Darjeeling, West Bengal, India

Posted by rico zook about 9 years ago

Homestays with local organic farmers Instructors: Rico Zook, Rohin D’souza, Sailesh Sharma To Register Contact: [email protected] For more information about this course, Rico and his work: www.i-permaculture.org

Demand for our annual PDC in November has become so strong that we are now starting another one in May. This venue, host organization and instructor (rico) have been facilitating this, the longest running annual PDC in Asia, for the past 10 years. The venue is situated in a nearby village that is located in 1,000’s of acres of mature and certified organic forest garden. The participants walk from their host's home through this amazing jungle to arrive at our classroon with a view of the high Himalayas.

Using a variety of learning techniques and strategies this course presents Permaculture as an integrated design approach to create sustainable human habitat. Course time will consist of traditional lectures, guest presentations, group discussions, games, exercises, hands-on projects, photos, movies and site visits. While we will focus on land systems, many discussions and examples will be explored of applications in the 'Invisible Structures'. These are the social, cultural, political, and economic structures we create as humans that powerfully shape much of our world today. Not only will the course be about Permaculture, but it will also model it by its structure and the environment we create together during the course.

see the posting below for this year's course for a few photos.
