72 hour Permaculture Design Course, Dordogne France, 13th August to 27th August 2011
£500 for 2 weeks inc of camping and simple meals.
A 72 hour permaculture course in southwest France following the full original Bill Mollison syllabus.
We will look at traditional practices in the Dordogne area and the potential for using a permaculture framework to create methods of interaction with the more recent influx of 'foreign' knowledge systems.
The cost of the course includes camping spots at a near-by campsite, transport to and from will be provided daily. There is also the option of some accomodation at a small local chateau at an extra cost, please contact us for details.
Matt Morton will be leading the course, with local growers as guest speakers. Matt completed his Permaculture Design Certificate in 1996 at the Permaculture Institute in Australia under Bill Mollison. Matt remained at the institute assisting Bill for another 3 months. He then went on to help set up The Island Quarry Project, a permaculture project in Australia, where he assisted on PDC courses. Matt has since completed a BSc in Ecology and Sustainable Habitations, and has for many years run his own ecological gardening business in Oxford, UK. Here he is also a Green Party City Councillor and has been a teacher of Environmental Management for 3 years.. He has a particular interest in Urban Permaculture and has set up a website www.ecocentrus.co.uk as an ecological networking site recording local biodiversity through peoples study of their own gardens.
