Come, join us at Blue Paradise Farms in Friendship, Westmoreland, Jamaica this March (2014) for our first ever Permaculture Design Course!
[Permaculture is a branch of ecology encompassing design for sustainable human living systems namely: organic farming, forestry, low-impact construction, site surveying, community regeneration, education, trade and economics etc.]
This is a Full & Certified Permaculture Design Course.
The course, led by dynamic, inspirational and highly-regarded International Permaculture Teacher Peter Cow, will commence the transformation of 15 acres of former sugarcane plantation into an eco-resort-cum-training site. It promises to be a great eye-opener for those who have never come across Permaculture before and will tackle such vital issues as Water Management Systems and Soil Techniques.
Blue Paradise Farms aims to generate real opportunities for Jamaicans, spread Permaculture knowledge and create a tranquil environment where Permaculture teachers and other educators run events and courses, and where persons of goodwill are welcome.
In addition to the full 72 hour PDC course:
• We have on board Chef Kevin - our very own professional Jamaican chef who caters for vegans, vegetarians and meat eaters.
• Apart from being a Permaculture tutor, Peter Cow is also a musician and will share his musical talent with us.
• We have a field trip to an idyllic eco-resort which has its own organic farm, river, off-grid energy and so much more.
• There will also be a talent show
Please come along to learn, to enjoy and to assist this very exciting and worthy project.
