Onsite Permaculture & Vedic Wisdom: Ayurvedic Agriculture Practicum

with Spencer Nielsen

September 30 - October 3, 2021

Description

This course will be focused on hands-on applications of content taught in our online class.  We will spend time each day working in the garden, building soil, catching water, designing ecosystems.  We will also integrate foundations of Ayurvedic cooking and herbal medicine in the kitchen, as ways to bring the knowledge of life into our lives.  From prepping beds to harvesting vegetables, composting and sheet mulching, sowing seeds and harvesting seeds, this workshop will be an overview of seasonal skills in the fall garden.  This is a great introduction to the practice of permaculture and the Ayurvedic approach to food and medicine cultivation.  The winter and spring will have more opportunities for working with trees, and garden design in workshops (Ayurvedic Agroforestry in February) and our Permaculture Design Course (in Spring).

Earth – Soil science and soil care (composting, compost tea, ferments, worm composting, mulch, and more)
Water – Water harvesting (rain catch, rain gardens, swales, greywater)
Fire – Agroforestry (food forests, guilds, tree selection, pruning & grafting, medicinals)
Air – Site analysis (zone/sector analysis, site assessment, base mapping)
Space – Permaculture design principles, process, and methodologies)

There will be an Online permaculture course with 3 classes in September to help prepare for this onsite meeting.
