Teaching Permaculture Teachers

About this Event

*Please note, there is no camping onsite and no food provided for this course.

This six-day course is offered as a pre-event to the Australasian Permaculture Convergence (APC) in Brisbane .

Permaculture as a curriculum has been a significant success in education on a global scale. Few curricula can claim such broad adoption of the essential elements and features of it as an educational proposal as permaculture does.

The success of permaculture as a course of study can be attributed to the teachers who have taught the students moving exponentially. Teaching permaculture and learning and translating it into effective practice.

This course is offered to share a particular approach with the next generations of teachers. The course was developed from my conviction that teachers could demonstrate the best in adult learning, teaching, understanding and methodology. And produce excellent teachers who will create excellent permaculturists. Teachers would need to develop the capacity within their students to think within the discipline. There are layers of knowledge and behaviour.

I have explored a diversity of strategies always focused on the learner and Care of People to offer a considered choice of methods effective in giving students confidence and competence to be excellent teachers of future permaculturists.

YOU WILL LEARN HOW TO…

  • Design a course, either short or long
  • Develop clear course outcomes

Rosemary has a special commitment to the people of war-torn nations such as Vietnam, Cambodia, Bosnia and Afghanistan.

In between her overseas work Rosemary has developed several of her own properties in the Blue Mountains. Using permaculture principles the properties have become models for sustainable living.

Rosemary is the author of ‘The Earth User’s Guide to Permaculture’ and ‘The Earth User’s Guide to Teaching Permaculture’ (supplied to all students) and is also a co-founder with Lis Bastian of The Blue Mountains Permaculture Institute.
