Start designing your way to abundance on our hands-on permaculture design course!
At Bogata Šuma you can experience a permaculture lifestyle, as you gain the necessary skills to implement permaculture in your own life. We will work with permaculture ethics and principles to help us make sustainable choices for a more peaceful world.
In this course: what is permaculture, how do you design your land/balcony/windowsill and aspects of your own life.
In this program you will learn about practical permaculture in real life. How to design with permaculture ethics and principles as decision making tools, and how to implement techniques.
We will not only talk about these subjects, but also DO things and see it working. At the end of this course you will have a design for your vegetable growing space, and a design for a part of your life. You'll have tools to read the landscape and some knowledge about natural building techniques. You'll learn about soil, composting techniques, water and how to setup an ecological garden
When designing, we state our intention for what we want to manifest. We close the gap between where we are and the vision of where we want to go, by creating a plan of the steps in between. With writing down your dreams and goals, you activate the process of becoming the person you want to be.
Put your future in good hands: your own!
