NEW advanced course: Design of Ecovillages & land-based Communities

Project: Earthcare Education Aotearoa NZ

Posted by Inna Alex about 7 years ago

The course is designed as an advanced module to the Permaculture Design Certificate (PDC). This course teaches a sequential approach to designing an ecovillage/land-based community using permaculture design principles and methodology.

Tues, 24 March – Sun, 29 March 2015

At Tui Community, Golden Bay, South Island New Zealand

 

This course teaches a sequential approach to designing an ecovillage/land-based community using permaculture design principles and methodology, culminating in small group designs which encompass each broad step.

The course is designed as an advanced module to the Permaculture Design Certificate (PDC).

In order to design harmonious human settlements which marry the needs of people with the needs of the land, we begin by learning attunement skills to sensitize ourselves to the natural environment. The ‘nuts and bolts’ aspect of this course will draw upon mature examples of some of the most successful international ecovillage-communities as our role models. One of these is our residential learning-ground of Tui Community.

Course content:

▪                reading the landscape and site assessment,

▪                land selection and land tenure systems,

▪                internal zoning,

▪                siting buildings,

▪                collective infrastructure (eg water, access, sewerage),

▪                land caretaking,

▪                seasonal calendars,

▪                regeneration of wilderness areas,

▪                community-scale food production, and

▪                social systems.

 

Who is this course for?

- permaculture designers and developers

- people living or preparing to live in land-based communities/ecovillages

- community development workers who are engaged in land-based projects

Pre-requisites:

Permaculture Design certificate, or prior experience or study/reading of Permaculture.

Legend of Badges

Note: The various badges displayed in people profiles are largely honesty-based self-proclamations by the individuals themselves. There are reporting functions users can use if they know of blatant misrepresentation (for both people and projects). Legitimacy, competency and reputation for all people and projects can be evidenced and/or developed through their providing regular updates on permaculture work they’re involved in, before/after photographs, etc. A spirit of objective nurturing of both people and projects through knowledge/encouragement/inspiration/resource sharing is the aim of the Worldwide Permaculture Network.

PRI Teacher

With the exception of the ‘Member’ who has never taken a PDC, all of the above can apply to become a PRI PDC Teacher. PRI PDC Teachers are those who the PRI recognise, through a vetting board, as determined and competent to teach the full 72-hour course as developed by Permaculture founder Bill Mollison – covering all the topics of The Designers’ Manual as well as possible (i.e. not cherry picking only aspects the teacher feels most interested or competent in). Such teachers also commit to focussing on the design science, and not including subjective spiritual/metaphysical elements. The reason these items are not included in the PDC curriculum is because they are “belief” based. Permaculture Design education concerns itself with teaching good design based on strategies and techniques which are scientifically provable.

PRI PDC Teachers may be given teaching and/or consultancy offerings as they become available as the network grows.
