May 24-June 6, 2015 - Monteverde Cloud Forest Costa Rica - Permaculture Design Course and Natural Building Workshop
May 24-June 6
Learn about permaculture design in the Monteverde Cloud Forest of Costa Rica!
We will deliver our 13th internationally recognized Permaculture Design Certificate Course at the illustrious Monteverde Institute. (Please check out this wonderful organization, the site and facilities)
The Mission of the Monteverde Institute is to advance sustainable living at the local and global level through place-based education, applied research and collaborative community programs. This aligns closely with our mission and we are proud to partner with this institute in offering this course.
The course will incorporate visits to the local farms and communities, classes on local ecology from Monteverde, and the rich ecosystem of the cloud forest - students will be immersed in both the cultural and ecological realities of the region and will design from that experience. Following the course, there will be further opportunities to learn natural building, alternative energy and the ecology of the area and to apprentice at Monteverde.
This is an ideal opportunity for college students and others who want to immerse in the subject of permaculture in a beautiful location this summer and is the perfect launch for a summer in Central/South America. The weather in the cloud forest is mild all year; this time of year is a great time to visit.
Grow Permaculture... growing permaculture for a sustainable planet!
Create abundance, help the planet.
Grow Permaculture is a full-service education and regenerative design organization offering a complete range of courses and design solutions. Our mission is to provide the means for people to create more abundance in their lives while caring for the environment and community. We accomplish this with an in-depth client interview, and an analysis and design of your site to create maximum yield with minimal energy and resource use. We also show people how to do this for themselves through our internationally recognized Permaculture Design Certificate Course and introductory, specialty and advanced courses. We are active in our community - mentoring and volunteering for community gardens, urban farming groups and resilience-building organizations.
Permaculture is a ground-breaking and broad-based set of tools and principles that allow people to use existing resources and a 'big-picture' viewpoint to improve conditions. It is in essence a design methodology and the focus is on systems. We recognize the interrelationship and interdependencies that exist within systems, whether human systems or natural systems. When you design each component of the system with an awareness of how this fits into the whole, solutions and benefits are revealed that you otherwise might miss.
Whether you want to grow food in your backyard, or create a sustainable neighborhood model, regenerate and heal a damaged eco-system, or run a successful commercial sustainable farm, permaculture has tools that will help you be more successful, with less energy spent and with no harm to the environment or other systems.
