My Introduction to Permaculture course is, like others, a two day, weekend-long course. However, I built this course from the ground up to answer the question:
"What would I need to learn in a weekend to start using permaculture design and applying it on land in Finland."
This course covers a LOT of territory in a short period of time. Day one is about patterns and ecosystem literacy. Day two focuses on how to apply these patterns quickly to start taking action.
It was designed for deep winter when snow covers the ground and is based on traditional teaching methods.
This is NOT a traditional introduction to permaculture course. This course is designed to get you up to speed on the latest scientific understanding regarding agroecology and how permaculture design and Holistic Management can help you apply these principles.
It is also intended for beginners or those with a moderate level of background in these topics. It is not for advanced permaculture practitioners.
This course is a reflection of what I have learned over 11 years of research into topics big and small. It is geared towards people with long attention spans who are comfortable in a traditional classroom.
I understand this is not for everyone, but as the teacher, I need to be comfortable with the setting. Hint, if you got this far, you are probably going to be ok.
