Permaculture Internship

Urban Permaculture Internship
 

Brunswick, Melbourne

 

9th October - 6th November 2020
 

Fridays 

10am - 3pm

 

 

We invite those who would like to expand their skill and knowledge in the realms of permaculture, homesteading and regenerative living to join us on an exploration of practical skill-based learning.

This course is a response to climate change in that it is teaching people more self and community reliance within a city and urban environment. 
We need strategies which are going to improve our quality of life locally, strengthening pre-existing systems and finding other processes that create stability and resilience. 

What is Permaculture:

 

Permaculture is a design science that focuses on the relationship between elements within a system. Using nature as a foundation, Permaculture harnesses the energy within a system for maximum efficiency and minimal waste (just like a forest does!).

 

These design principles can be applied to all kinds of systems, working with nature to provide positive solutions for environmental and social regeneration.

 

 

Urban Permaculture is needed more than ever so we can keep our wild places intact, exploring how to live sustainable as local as possible within our existing communities.
