Do you want to grow more of your own food while spending less time and energy in the garden? You’re in the right place!
This course on permaculture design is a great guide for beginners who want to get started growing a permaculture garden right away but don’t have the time or money to invest in a PDC training program.
When I first heard about permaculture gardening it was like I had heard the truth for the first time. It just made complete sense to me to replicate nature in my garden and on my homestead. That doesn’t mean that traditional gardening is bad. Not at all.
I know plenty of people who use traditional gardening methods (with organic gardening practices) who enjoy an abundant garden every year. But this kind of gardening does require more attention from the gardener. Permaculture gardening aims to reduce the amount of work it takes to grow food and improve sustainability by creating systems that resemble nature.
For generations people lived by hunting & gathering and nature provided a perfect “garden” from which they could eat. Nature always balances itself out. You never see large areas where everything is dead, pest-ridden, or plagued by disease (unless humans were involved).
Bill Mollison, the grandfather of permaculture, recognized how perfect the ecosystem was in a rainforest in Tasmania and decided there must be a way to design systems that function just as well. Permaculture was born.
What’s Inside this Permaculture Homestead Design Course?
This course includes an ebook covering the basics of permaculture as well as video training.
The course includes an overview of the important aspects of permaculture design and implementation. If you want something that’s easy to follow, this course is for you.
In it you’ll learn…
- permaculture basics so you know the how and why behind your design choices
- how to build healthy soil, use water systems, choose the right plants, and attract beneficials
- how to use animals in the garden
- how to create a homestead design that works with your needs and your site’s strength
- how to make homesteading easier by “stacking functions”
- ways to plan out your design so you won’t have to change something later
I created this course because I saw how much easier homesteading was for me after designing my homestead with permaculture principles in mind.
But I also know that permaculture design certification courses are expensive, take a lot of time, and may be overkill (and expensive!!) for people who are just looking to improve their homestead.
In just one weekend you can learn the basics of permaculture design so you can start implementing changes on your homestead. These changes will improve your site’s health and production while saving you time and energy.
Permaculture aims to create garden systems that replicate nature. If you look at a forest or wetland, you can see just how perfect nature is in creating systems that work together.
No one has to go into the pine forest and water the trees. No one needs to go into the wetlands and spray for pests. These ecosystems are balanced systems that produce food and other resources without any input from humans.
