Observation and Mapping Course 2019

Observation and Mapping Course 2019

15th - 17th March 2019
 
This training has been developed to assist participants in the early stages of any design process - the observation and survey of a site and its steward. While a few days is limited time to fully observe a site, much can still be learned by being present on a piece of land, examiningand trying out different observation and mapping tools, and by sharing experience. Hence this training takes participants through a hands-on, land-based design process on a real site, bringing permaculture theory to life.
 
2 full days (residential with non-residential option)

Learning the Language of Systems and Patterns

Learning the Language of Systems and Patterns

Spring 2019 (dates yet to be confirmed)
 
Join us for an experiential journey into the world of systems and patterns and their value in designing for both land and people. We will explore systems and patterns in our own lives and the world around us, through games, observations, artwork, mindmapping, slide shows, talks and discussions. This experiential learning embeds the language into our own thinking enabling us to become fluent in using patterns and systems in our formal and informal design work.
