The aim of the course is to deliver the broad field of Permaculture through the internationally recognized 72-hour design course curriculum according to Bill Mollison and to provide a solid foundation for further endeavors using Permaculture. During the course, we will focus on the following topics:

Ethical foundations of Permaculture / Permaculture principles and methods - Observation and perception / Design exercises and presentations / Ecosystems, system theory and complexity / Soils, trees, water, climate / Permaculture in the tropics / Urban Permaculture and indigenous landscape design - Social Permaculture / Natural patterns / Terrain modeling / Self-sufficiency / Economy and community

Design exercises as well as the intensive study of concrete projects in individual or group work and student presentations will put the theory into practice. Thus, the theory acquired in the course is directly applied by practical transformations on the existing project of Sabina School.
