Workshop Field Observation worked out great

Posted by Jan Zijlstra almost 11 years ago

The first workshop was held under great conditions and turned out to be not only useful but very enjoyable as well. The next workshop will follow this weekend.

Last Saturday the first Kalen workshop, Permaculture in Action - field observation, was held under great conditions. Not only the weather gods were with us, so were 14 enthusiastic adults, all eager to get involved in Permaculture, and 2 kids and a dog, eager to observe and enjoy everything nature had to provide at that moment.

 

The first workshop was a good opportunity to meet like-minded people and to make our first steps to gain some essential Permaculture skills.

 

During this workshop the basic concept to come to a Permaculture design was explained and we all started the practical exercise about observing the present conditions of the land and its surrounding. This exercise was concluded by a round up of impressions where valuable remarks and suggestions were shared to provide the ground base for the next steps into land development.

 

Apart that this workshop was a useful first step, it was very enjoyable as well. On the end of the workshop we shared home-made food and tea made by some of the participants. There was eagerness for a follow up soon, so we are thinking on having the next workshop coming Saturday.
