Intensive Permaculture Design Course
Florida – March 15-26, 2017
This is an intensive two week course held at our permaculture farm north of Tampa about 20 minutes from Weeki Wachee, FL. Students will have the opportunity to participate with and observe permaculture systems installation and operate in an immersive environment, including appropriate tech, innovative greenhouse solutions, perennial food systems, animals, solar and more. This is a small, diverse farm with many different elements and examples of permaculture that can be translated to a wide variety of settings, urban or rural. The course will address strategies and techniques for both urban and rural areas in different climates and circumstances. We will be midst setting up new food production systems and water catchment systems during the course (with our staff and volunteer crew) and students will have the opportunity for daily hands on involvement with a number of farm tasks and ongoing installations.
The farm is located in a unique sandhill pine-oak ecosystem in Florida. We have many beautiful oak and pine trees on the site, native wildlife including protected species, and wild edibles such as pawpaws, wild cherry, and dewberries. We have many beautiful parks nearby including springs that manatees visit regularly, rivers, bike trails, and the Gulf of Mexico.
