NEPAL PERMACULTURE DESIGN COURSE MACRH 2016 – Hasera Farm

Posted by Roman Eisenkoelbl over 4 years ago

In one of my recent articles i wrote for permaculture news i described a little bit the impact of the earthquake last April in Nepal.You can see the article here.

This time i am happy to share with you that i will be going back to Nepal for the first time after the Earthquake to assist my friend,teacher and Permaculture Pioneer Govinda Sharma with a Permaculture Design Certificate in March 2016.

Govinda Sharma has been practicing and teaching Permaculture since 1992 and has facilitated 30 PDCs and about 250 short courses in various aspects of Permaculture. His trainings have included participants from almost 55 countries.

                               Govinda Sharma presenting at the Permaculture Conference in Malawi 2009

 

He has a Masters Degree in Ecological Agriculture and has worked with farmers all over Nepal and in countries like Austria, Japan, Malawi, India, Qatar and France.

 

                               Govinda Sharma & Roman Eisenköbl during a PDC in South India,Auroville

 

Co-Facilitator Roman Eisenkoelbl, was part so far of 13 PDC Courses (organization & co-Facilitation) so far and some of his teachers include David Homlgren, Rosemary Morrow, Robyn Francis, Alex Kruger (Berg en Dal Ecovillage),Rico Zook(i-permaculture) and Govinda Sharma (organichasera – Nepal). He is the founder of the Soil Sun Soul Collective ( http://www.soilsunsoul.net/) a transformational Permaculture Education Project.

During a PDC together in South India

 

Together they will offer a high quality Permaculture Design Course Certificate at an amazing Permaculture Farm – Hasera. HASERA Farm,one of Nepals leading Permaculture Research and Training Centre dedicated to the promotion of Sustainable Agriculture, Sustainable Development and Permaculture.see more here http://www.organichasera.org/

HASERA is a Research and Training Centre dedicated to the promotion of Sustainable Agriculture, Sustainable Development and Permaculture in Nepal and abroad..

The 3 Objectives of Hasera Farm:

  1. To generate knowledge base on sustainable agriculture, sustainable development and Permaculture through farm and community research.


2. To practice and demonstrate the proven techniques in the real field situation.


3. To disseminate the proven knowledge of sustainable agriculture, sustainable development and Permaculture to the global communities through training, workshops and publications

At HASERA an exceptional integration of crops, animals and natural biodiversity can be found.

The major aspects that can be learned and observed in this farm during the exposure visits include:

Permaculture
Climate Change
Community Forestry
Natural Resource Management
Sustainable / Organic Agriculture
Sustainable Community Development
Integrated Ecological Pest Management
Certification and Marketing of Organic Products
Soil and water management in the Hill Farming Systems
Integrated Farm Designing with principles of Permaculture

Many of the people might be interested in knowing aobut the current situation in Nepal and also how Permaculture Dsign has benefited places like Hasera Farm during the earthquake.Here is a quick update.

How Permaculture Design & Strategies saved Hasera Farm from the earthquake last April:

The Impact of the Earthquake at Hasera Farm and the response:

At Hasera Farm, Govinda Sharma and his family have been applying Permaculture Design & Strategies for the last 22 years. They have applied Permaculture Principles to all zones of their farm which resulted in a very diverse and resilient systems which is nowadays one of the best Permaculture Farm Project examples in the whole of Nepal.

Undoubtedly, major focus in terms of Design for Disaster Strategies has been given for the design of zone 0 :: the house.

While designing the house we designed it in pyramidal shape and also made it in concentric ring structures. So the main structure of the house, which is at the center is taller and the support structures which encircle the main house from the outside are shorter. This made the house wide base and narrow top. This provided the enough anchor for the house to stand still even during the threatening shakes of 7.9 Richter scale earth quake in April 2015.

                                 Fig: HASERA farm house, tall center supported by short surroundings

Also, we put doors at every sides of the house and also at both floors. It made us possible to escape out of the house immediately after noticing the earth quake. So at the time when all the houses in the surroundings fell in to the ground, our farm house stood strong.

Besides these, we have more than 10 special design features at our home which make it more ecological, social and peaceful.

Now we are sharing our house designing skills with the local communities and helping them to make their homes accordingly.

                                Pict: Sharing the knowledge of Permaculture home designing with the community.

Some 173 families in our surroundings have been benefitted by our support program. We are helping them through knowledge and some materials to renovate their house with the use of principles of Permaculture. The problem created by the earth quake is being used as an opportunity to redesign the village in Permaculture way.

More nicely, we received donations from many Permaculture friends from throughout the world in this mission proving the integrity between the members of Permaculture community throughout the world.

Slowly things are getting back to normal step by step and Permaculture Design can definitely play a major role in supporting this process.

The Permaculture Design Course is a first big step on your Permaculture Journey !

 

The course price of 450 Dollar includes food, bed, tuition, stationeries, training materials, exposure visits!

Here is a SLIDESHOW from a PDC Course we did together in South India:

have a look at some images from our Permaculture Design Course in March 2014 with Govinda Sharma from Nepal,Roman and Martin.It was a wonderful time,great experiences we shared together and really amazing group of people meet,shared and learned for 2 weeks in South India,on the edge of Auroville.see here:

We are looking forward hearing from you!
