Permaculture is a practical and ecological design science. By using appropriate and intelligent design principles, we learn to work with, rather than against nature at every level of the human environment.
Daily yoga sessions, nourishing food and a beautiful natural setting help to harmonise body, mind and soul in service of us co-creating a more beautiful world.
Participating in a permaculture design course at the Krishna Village Eco Yoga Community is a unique opportunity to be involved in an integrated ‘whole-being’ approach to permaculture, yoga and conscious community creation. During your time on this course you will experience and gain understanding of the following:
Ecological Design Concepts
Patterns and their relationship to Design
Zone & Sector Analysis
How to design for any climate
The importance of water management
Soil fertility and creation
The 'rules' of building sustainable houses
Fine gardening, food forest & cropping strategies
People Permaculture & Community Development
Evolution of natural systems
Economic & legal considerations in land use
and much much more...
Throughout the course, a variety of short group design exercises will be presented, culminating in a final and complete permaculture design grounding everything you will have learned. This experience will undoubtedly give you the confidence to create permaculture designs for yourself, friends, family and potentially be the first step in a wide-open career pathway.
