Practical Permaculture

Practical Permaculture is a natural extension for those studying Permaculture.  In this class, we take the knowledge we learned in Permaculture class out to the gardens; there we can use permaculture thinking in our everyday lives as a tool to create our shared green future.  You will get a broad theoretical introduction to permaculture as a design tool by looking at lots of practical examples. During the winter when the earth is still frozen, we work with design tasks where we apply permaculture principles and design methods.  Then, once warmer weather arrives, we bring these sustainable designs to life.

In Practical Permaculture, we use gardening practices to see permaculture in practice.  In the hojskole's demonstration garden, students learn to develop and maintain an outdoor permaculture area.  Some of the techniques we will practice include herb spirals, forest gardens, lasagne beds, ornamental trees, insect hotels, and much more!  By combining these elements and by combing our creativity, we will create a fertile and edible garden that cares for both people and nature.

This class is for students already enrolled in Permaculture.
