Permaculture Introductory weekend Course design - introduction.
As part of my journey in Permaculture i have been working towards running courses to pass on this amazing stuff to other people, both to spread sustainable living and to bring me an income. I think that encouraging and enabling people to live more in touch with the earth, more responsively and responsibly is one of the most important things i can do in my life, so teaching permaculture is ideal for me.
I have done some apprentice/shadow teaching on a few courses at Steward Wood with Devin Ashwood and also at Monkton Wyld with Designed Visions (a group of permaculture teachers teaching in the South West). Last summer i went on a ToT (Training of Trainers) course with Designed Visions, which gave me lots of teaching tools and the confidence to run some courses myself.
I am co-teaching a full design course this August with Aranya at Steward Wood, and i also decided to go for running an introductory course this spring as well. I was particularly inspired by the Transition Town phenomenon around Devon - I thought this would interest lots of people in Permaculture, and i thought an introductory course may also generate people coming on the Summer design course. I planned to lead a course jointly with Aranya in Moretonhampstead in March, but things did not go to plan...
