Permaculture Design Course – Aljezur Set2010

06/19/2010 at 4:51 pm (PDC - Permaculture Design Course) (, , , , , )

Official Permaculture Design Course From 11 to 19 of September 2010, the official 72 hours Permaculture Design Course will take place in the Várzea da Gonçala, Aljezur, Portugal.

The course follows a 72 hour set syllabus and leads to the internationally recognized Permaculture Certificate.

Tutor: Lesley Martin was an organic grower and farmer in Cornwall for 20 years before taking a Permaculture Design course in 1995. She went on to take the Permaculture Diploma, with a 2 year teaching apprenticeship.

After qualifying as a teacher in Adult Education she delivered Government funded Permaculture Training Courses throughout the South West of England before moving to Portugal in 1999.

The subjects covered include:

Ethics and principles; Learning strategies; Pattern in design; Bio diversity; Water in the landscape; Forests and trees; Soils; Climate; Buildings and structures; Formal/informal economies; Community development;

The course includes a number of practical sessions and culminates in a 2 day design workshop.

The place: Várzea da Gonçala is a smallholding/community located 7km NE from Aljezur, on the west Algarve.

We live in harmony with each other and the surrounding nature and have a few requests for you:

• Please do not bring dogs. We already have one here and there are enough locally as it is.

• We only use bio-degradable cleaning products, so please do not bring shampoos, soap etc, that our grey water treatment system will not enjoy. Suitable products will be available for purchase here.

• To avoid too many cars here, we are able to collect you from Aljezur, should you opt to travel by public transport. For further info, please contact us. • We do have internet access here and mobile signal is not brilliant. We do have the landline phone though, and can take messages for you whilst you are here.

• Whilst we have no objection per se of parents bringing children, we do not have facilities or people to look after them, and hope people respect the fact that this is an adult learning course and children could cause an unwanted distraction for all.

• Please respect our daily doings and do not arrive before the afternoon of 5th March.

• Live-in buses and vans by prior arrangement only. Thanks.

Prices and Payment: Total cost of this course is €300 which includes:

Camping area (bring your own tent).

Another dynamic Permaculture Design Course is in the works for Portugal from the teaching team of TreeYo. The course will continue the traditional format of an intensive two weeks of interactive learning and hands on activities. This format allows use to delve deep into the theory of the design principles, recount past design and implementation work, and progress Escola da Terra further towards its aim of a sustainable school through hands on experiences. To learn more about our specific facilitation style and view the highlights of the past courses there, please visit the following: http://www.treeyopermaculture.wordpress.com

The course will be held at the Escola Da Terra which has several water harvesting features, gardens, and an emerging food forest. As well there is a great surrounding community that helps to deliver this course with lots of love. This intention manifests into delicious food, warm hosts, and a fun atmosphere.

The course will be held near Sintra, just outside of Lisbon, which has very beautiful forests, beaches, and more moderate temperatures. The local villages have the feel of the countryside yet it is easily reachable from Lisbon. A 45 minute train ride and a 15 minute car ride and you are there.

This course follows the 14 chapters of Permaculture : A designers Manual by Bill Mollison. Some of the topics presented within that includes the following and more:
– Ethics, Principles, and Methods of Design
– Water harvesting, conservation, purification, and revitalization
– Tree Crops, reforestation, and nutrient recycling
– Soil classification, biological interaction, and remineralization
– Tropical, Dryland, and Temperate influences on vegetation, housing, and
earthworks
– Nutrition and fermentation
– Transition Towns – emerging and evolving approach to community level sustainability
Facilitator: Doug Crouch and Gautier Gras
Language used: English (with help to translate unknown words whenever needed)
Course fee: 450 Euros , all meals included, plus housing at local hostel or camping for free
Host Site: Escola da Terra– Rua do Tojal 12, Casas Novas, (Almocageme), Sintra, Portugal.
For specific questions feel free to contact, Doug at cdoug_e@hotmail.com

Our aim as Permaculture trainers is to creatively facilitate a learning process that empowers people in permaculture design through experiential learning and hands-on training. Each student completes the course with a site design and presentation based on
the skills and knowledge accumulated throughout the two weeks. This reinforces the material presented and allows students to gain the confidence needed to begin implementing sustainability initiatives into ones growing space and community.
