Teaching Philosophy

Teaching Philosophy

We are experienced in organizing and delivering courses and workshops. Our aim is to offer learning opportunities that meet the needs of all involved resulting in inspired positive change.

We practice participatory interactive teaching methods that are designed to empower through a supportive learning environment, experiential learning, discussions, documentaries, role play games & reflection.

One of our main passions is working with groups as facilitators and teachers. Although we design and deliver a range of training we focus on variations of the three courses out lined below:

1– Permaculture Design Deep Ecology & Eco Village Living.  This powerful and life changing course shifts the paradigm, helping people to embody and really live the ethics and principles of Permaculture.

2– Permaculture in Practice – Hands On  Organic veg production, Earthen Building, Cob ovens, Composting toilets, Water tanks, Community living, Bio – Dynamics, Bio fertilisers, and Bio digester’s to name a few.

3– Permaculture design courses.  This course promotes and encourages a transition to a sustainable, self reliant and abundant lifestyle, covering every major topic in Bill Mollisons: Permaculture: A Designers Manual. We combine both land based methodology’s with the skills to apply Permaculture design to invisible and soft structure applicable to life anywhere on this planet
