Permaculture Garden Design Course
17-24 April 2012
This 7 day Permaculture Garden Course (PGC) explores concepts of permaculture design applied specifically to the garden. We explain our process for designing a garden, one which includes a bounty of nourishing foods, beautiful spaces and enriched bio-diversity. By approaching design from a thoughtful, intellectual perspective, we can minimize maintenance and reduce redundancy, allowing ourselves to focus on the most enjoyable parts of having a garden.
Our course's balance theory with plenty of hands on practical activity and design exercises and includes field trips and hikes to the beautiful surrounding countryside of the Central Balkan mountain range.
At the end of the course each participant will create their own design and present it to the group. We encourage our guests to create designs of their own gardens or future projects.
In the evenings, we open the floor to our guests to share their own projects and sources of inspiration. We have a room at the ready with a multimedia projector.
What we cover during the course can be easily applied to existing gardens. So whether you are new to growing or a seasoned veteran, we are sure you will enjoy this unique approach !
