Permaculture in a Nutshell



Learn all you need to know about permaculture design over 2 weekends, rather than taking a 2 week course - learn how to integrate all the timesaving, low maintenance, water saving, waste reducing and cycling practices into your garden, putting together a plan that incorporates a food forest and shelter and fedges. You’ll spend less time maintaining the garden, and more time harvesting and enjoying it. The two weekends together are like taking a mini permaculture design certificate (pdc)

Weekend 2

• Food forests, fedges and shelter
• Plant guilds and companion planting
• Fruit tree/ bush training systems and pruning
• Water in the landscape
• Climates, microclimates and subtropicals
• Sector analysis
• Zoning in the garden
• Putting together elements of a design

Practical Projects to choose from: pruning, espalier fruit tree training, mulch pits, garden design

2 x 2 day weekend courses –Cost $200 per person per weekend or $300 for two people learning together per weekend. (Total costs of 2 weekends - $400 for one person or $600 for 2). You can book for both weekends or just one.

Detailed handouts are prepared for each part of the course and there is time to talk about your property, look at specifics you want to put into your design and help you to get the design you want - whether it’s for your own property or you just want to experiment on paper with your learning over the weekend.

Practical and theory sessions based on an urban permaculture property in New Plymouth which has a young food forest.
