About Program

In this course, we wish to enable participants to produce healthy food, become more self-sufficient with energy, and produce a surplus of fertilizers which can be easily sold or traded. Combining these elements provides a means to live sustainably. We believe that our bodies and minds are equally important and a part of nature so we included techniques and strategies to encourage self-care practices. Simon has been studying and actively practicing permaculture for 15 years. The opportunity to learn hands-on from the projects on his land is a valuable opportunity.
