Intro to Permaculture


  • 107 Rooftop Garden Level 1, 107 Redfern St Sydney Australia (map)

Join Nick Ritar and Milkwood Permaculture for an intensive weekend of permaculture design theory and action. You will leave this course with a solid grounding of how you can apply permaculture principles in your home, garden, apartment or farm. You’ll also be in an informed position to further your journey into permaculture design. The course will give you a comprehensive overview of how to apply pro-active, sustainable design techniques to your immediate environment – whether you live in a small apartment, a quarter-acre block, or a rural property.

It covers the basics of designing resilient systems with permaculture principles; energy cycling, nutrient cycling, animal systems, veggie growing systems, and how to retrofit your existing habitat to become a haven of organic food and low-energy living. You will see examples of existing permaculture systems, projects and designs, both urban and rural, to show you how you can use permaculture design to create positive change. 

This course arms you with practical strategies to better care and provide for yourself, your family and the planet. All set in a beautiful, abundant inner city community garden bursting with examples of urban permaculture in action.


Tickets start at $416.50 and can be purchased from here. You can also find out more on Milkwood and Nick Rikar by visiting the Milkwood website at https://www.milkwood.net/course/introduction-to-permaculture-170218/
