Advanced Permaculture Design Process April 1-5

January 31, 2019 News and Events

April 1st from 4pm – April 5th, 5pm
Dan’s excited to be running another four-day Advanced Permaculture Planning + Design Process workshop with David Holmgren again in Hepburn, Victoria.
This workshop is an accessible yet deep exploration of permaculture design process as a living unfolding reality.
As co-originator of permaculture, David Holmgren has been working with permaculture design process for forty years. In this workshop David shares his long history learning, practicing, and teaching permaculture design along with how his understandings are continuing to evolve today. Much of what David shares in this workshop you will not find anywhere else.

Alongside high-level design process frameworks and how permaculture ethics and principles apply directly to design process, this workshop covers:

Reading people (Dan)
Reading landscape (David)
Distilling and synthesising observations (both)
Designing and implementing as things that best unfold together over time (both)
The evolution of design and implementation over years and decades (both)
Lecture-based and interactive classroom sessions will be complemented with time outside reading landscape walk and in-depth design-process-based tours of Melliodora and the Mayberry Woodend project.

Participants will have the opportunity to share their own design projects with the group for discussion and feedback.
The course is being run by Holmgren Design and the official booking page is here.
