Sound Permaculture design can lead to a creative and artful way of living, where people and nature are preserved and enhanced.
This workshop provides the foundation and framework for the remaining 11 modules. We’ll flush out permacultures’ definitions, principles, ethics, get familiar with its origins and design process. We’ll look at how others have applied permaculture design solutions throughout the world.
All modules include at least one hands-on practical skill session or a field trip to a BOP permaculture property.

“I love the solar classroom and the really friendly group. I am excited about the year.”“Thank you so much for your commitment to sharing this wealth of knowledge and setting up the course in Tauranga.”
“I appreciate the relaxed style of the day with great organization, sticking to time and the fabulous food.”“I wanted to say a huge thank you to both you and Neville for yesterday – I really enjoyed the first session of the course. I had been personally wondering whether there were people who choose not to have children for population reasons and I just wanted to say how much I respect your personal choices in this area, and your passion and commitment to sharing permaculture with people locally.”
“It works for me to discuss ideas with others, work in small groups, share food and then go outside for activities in the afternoon.”
“My next car was going to be a Lexus. Then I spent the day at permaculture fundamentals. Now I am thinking I’ll find a Valiant or similar old school vehicle with a simple engine that I can run on veggie oil and maintain myself. It no longer makes sense to buy a car that requires hooking up to a computer to find out what’s wrong with it!”
