Join a permaculture learning guild for a one day journey into the urban or rural environment and experience permaculture in a creative new way.
We are joyed to announce a new Permaculture Design Certificate course conveniently offered on weekends in the Greater Vancouver Area. This dynamic and creative experience offers a uniquely balanced perspective with a male - female teaching team; Delvin Solkinson and Kym Chi.
Together we will explore…..
• Ethos and Principles
• Design Methodologies
• Pattern literacy
• Soil & Earthworks
• Water & Aquaculture
• Cool Climate Design
• Tropical Design
• Dryland Design and Social Permaculture
• Plants and Medicine of the Coastal First Nations
We will enjoy many fun activities including;
• 10 Month Mapping and Design Project
• Interactive games
• Garden, Farm and Forest Visits
• Plant ID
• Shared Potlucks.
Connect with others who want to become more conscious global citizens, deepen their understanding of how nature is designed, and learn how to become more empowered designers. Together we will learn how to map and design our homes, communities and lives, plan for emergency, grow more of our own food in all four seasons and work to build a regenerative future. The course is very flexible with busy lives and organized modularly. There is no time limit to complete the course and if you miss any classes you can do them in the future with other Gaiacraft permaculture design courses at no extra cost.
March 29 - December 6
Join this adventure in learning which includes field trips to Means of Production Garden, Loutet Farm, Strathcona/Cottonwood Gardens, City Farmer, Kits Community Gardens, Brewery Creek Community Garden and numerous other locations.
This journey will connect, empower and activate you in building resilient communities, learning and sharing techniques and making a difference in the world as you become inspired by nature and its teachings.
Share in a uniquely creative learning guild to explore permaculture in a transformative 10 month program based out of Langara and including field trips to gardens and urban farms. This course will take place from March - December of 2014.
