Six-week Permaculture Internship 9 May - 21 June 2015

Posted by chris lewis about 5 years ago

Várzea da Gonçala presents an six-week learning experience. Participants will be immersed in natural living in a small-scale community, gaining hands-on expertise of sustainable living in harmony with the ecosystem.

The Curriculum

The curriculum for the six weeks is a coordination of theory and hands-on field work. Practical application of the principles of permaculture is fundamental to the understanding of its teaching.  

Permaculture provides the framework and guide which we refer to on the journey to sustainability.  It is a model of design which works in harmony with nature's ways and patterns, and informs our thinking.  We are keen to point out that permaculture explains natural processes, and its principles act as guidelines to our approach, not a set of instructions for how to proceed.

The Course Objectives

The Internship incorporates the internationally certificated 72-hour PDC, and the structure of the course is designed to intimitely connect, on a daily basis, the teachings of permaculture to their application. This allows a deep understanding of natural processes, and of how we can positively interact with them to produce long-term sustainable results.
