How to start in practice

Posted by Jan Zijlstra almost 11 years ago

We are a bunch of enthusiastic friends who just started an organisation and got a piece of land. Now is the question how do we start from here to turn this land into a Permaculture education centre.

Exciting news! This week our organisation; Kalen, platform for self realization and sustainable ways of life, got land near Skopje. It is about 1000m2 or even a little bigger. Saturday I will have the chance to see it.

And then it all starts. Our first Permaculture practice. I am excited. Although some of us just finished a PDC course given by Bill Mollison and Geoff Lawton in Istanbul last November and are eager to put it into practice, there are those beginner questions; How to get started? What is the best approach to turn this piece of land into a fruit and veggie self sustainable paradise? How to make this a Permaculture education centre from the start? And so on. There is a lot to be learned this year!

I will keep you updated about our first babysteps into this Permaculture adventure.

Elena Parmiggiani : Jan! What a great news :)) I am sure you can meet all up and start designin, you were very good in the PDC, you started like 5 minutes after Mustafa brifed us to design and imagine the space. I am sure brainstorming will help a lot, as well as read together the landscape with your group. Start documenting with photos and videos the before state, then have a picknick or two in there :) I wish you all the best! Elena
