Empower yourself to advocate for change through whole systems design and teaching! In this dynamic and interactive course, you will learn significant teaching techniques to communicate Permaculture principles and strategies in a wide variety of educational settings. Our goal is to encourage and inspire your unique strengths and talents by demonstrating diverse teaching modalities such as lecture, facilitating class discussions, storytelling, and using visual aids. In this setting of active learning, you will experience essential hands-on practice by preparing and co-teaching several presentations. As a final course project the class will organize, promote and present a workshop to the public.

when: May 15 - June 1

registration & details:

O,U.R. Ecovillage is proud to host this two-week permaculture design certificate course with a focus on organizing and activism, and a grounding in earth based spirituality. Learn how to heal soil and cleanse water, how to design human systems that mimic natural systems, using a minimum of energy and resources and creating real abundance and social justice. Explore the strategies and organizing tools we need to make our visions real, and the daily practice, magic and rituals that can sustain our spirits. Participatory, hands-on teaching with lots of ritual, games, projects, songs, and laughs along with an intensive curriculum in ecological design.


And on a personal note, I have recently taken the position of Farm Manager at OUR Ecovillage. I will miss my permie friends and projects in Vancouver, but I'm not that far away. Do come and visit some time! This is a pretty special place and its just getting better with time.
