*Advanced Forest Gardening* 6-20th April 2013 in Sweden

Venue: Furuberg Vreten
Led by: Richard Perkins (P.R.I.&P.C.Assoc)
Web: http://www.integralpermanence.org/sweden-aprmay-2013.html

Forest Gardening represents the most sustainable form of food production through utilizing perennial crops on multiple layers. Not only does this allow us to stack crops vertically on any given site, by applying forest ecology principles we can also achieve the resilience, abundance and diversity of natural forest systems. Annual agriculture is today an incredibly unsustainable pursuit; industrial, fossil fuel and capital intensive monocultures than use up to 10 times the calories produced in their creation. Ironic as nature is powered on sunlight. We study forest ecology alongside soil development and all other aspects of related topics to allow us to design in complex plant matrixes that will function well beyond our own lifetimes. This exciting and emerging study will yield rich insights into the past as well as future forms of localized, perennial, decentralized human scale production.

What can I expect from the course? This course is a mixture of theory, design and hands on practical’s. The site is being developed as an extensive forest garden and dedicated perennial forest garden nursery for Scandinavia. We will have plenty of opportunity to go through all aspects of planning, developing and maintaining a forest garden. Fast paced and intensive yet dynamic and sense engaging, this course will leave participants confident inspecies choice, guild selection, patch design, propagation and maintenance of their site, as well as all manner of resources for further study.

Topics covered will include;
• Composts, Compost Teas
• Biofertilisers
• Soil Development
• Ground Preparation
• Mulch Systems
• Design process
• Species Selection
• Agroforestry
• Timber Processing
• Planting Database
• Seed/ Plant Sources
• Windbreak Design
• Fencing
• Integrating Animals
• Fungi & Mushrooms
• Innoculants
• Siting
• Nursery Stock
• Propagation & Grafting

*Bioconstruction- Building a Hobbit Home*
8-17th June 2013 in Sweden

Venue: Furuberg Vreten
Led by: Richard Perkins (P.R.I.&P.C.Assoc)
Web: http://www.integralpermanence.org/sweden-june-2013.html

This practicum will be primarily hands on, making quick decisions and creatively collaborating to make a multi- functional building that will serve as a washroom, drying room, herb/ mushroom /fruit drying racks as well as a sauna and radiant heated relaxation space orientated towards the setting sun down the valley to the West of the property.

We aim to build roundwood timber framing to support a reciprocal roof that will be clad and turfed as a living roof. The walls will be in filled with strawbale and plastered with natural clay and lime renders. Using bottles and recycled glazing and other locally sourced materials/ waste we will learn how to design and build a low cost yet beautiful and functional building within a very short space of time.

Alongside daily building tasks we shall begin with theory and classroom time focused on appropriate building design in this and other climates, as well as any aspects of Permaculture design the group feel inclined to look into. We have the opportunity to use the evenings to study other areas of interest related to building, community and Permaculture, watch films to extend the learning or simply relax together in the community that we build during our time together.

Other topics will include;
• Eco-friendly house placement and design
• Energy efficient architecture
• Energy conservation/ Microclimate considerations
• Natural Plasters/ Paints/ Finishes
• Community Building
• Decision Making
• Leadership Development
• Aspects of Permaculture Design/ Integrated Systems thinking http://www.integralpermanence.org/sweden-june-2013.html

International 9 day bale-cob and cob workshop in
North Latvia (11-19.July 2011),
where we build small cottage with fireplace.

The course work language is English.
More info about workshop
More info about cottage project

Bale-cob is a so called hybrid building method, where outside wall has 2 layers – outside bales and inside cob (sand-clay-straw). 10-15 cm cob accumulate stove heat and gives the change to sculpt rounded furniture into the wall. Strawbales are for insulation. The bales joints are also filled with cob but without cold-bridges.

Workshop instructor Jaanus Viese (www.juured.ee) has run cob project since year 2004. This workshop is a affiliated workshops with Cob Cottage Company, where Jaanus has studied natural building. Jaanus has 13 years experience as a group facilitator and 7 years background with natural building. Jaanus has also academical backround (Master of Environment Siences), he has worked with many different rocket mass stoves project and build cob and masonry benches and ovens.

July 16th – 30th 2011

Uddevalla Permaculture Design and Nature Awareness Course
Orreviks Gård, Uddevalla, Sweden
Instructors Aranya, Miki Dedijer & guests

This practical, intensive course offers the possibility of significant and positive life changes.

Merging permaculture design with nature awareness practices, it’s a unique chance to deepen your understanding of permaculture on a solid foundation of nature connection. The two approaches form a powerful synergy for developing your knowledge of place and working with the natural world.

Although permaculture is most commonly thought about in connection with gardening & farming, its principles, ethics and design methods can be adapted and used in each individual’s own work, interests and home to bring about a more harmonious & sustainable lifestyle. Permaculture offers a perspective on all aspects of building a sustainable future. Permaculture encourages us to use our individual skills, knowledge and interests, whilst drawing on traditional wisdom, science and our innate ability to observe and learn from the world around us.

Permaculture Association design course certificate Nature awareness is a collection of practices that develop your naturalist and sensory awareness skills, attuning your senses to the current rhythms of the land and animals. This forms a deep and lasting connection that enhances your everyday awareness. Such a deep connection to living systems creates the framework for advanced permaculture training.The course fosters foundational habits to establish strong nature connection, observation, and ecological design skills. Participants will gain a clear understanding of how to use the practices of Nature Awareness and Permaculture Design to develop a mutually enhancing interaction with land and community.Course participants will be awarded the Permaculture Association (Britain)’s internationally recognised Certificate in Permaculture Design.
”I enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere and informal teaching styles” *

Orreviks GardOrreviks Gård is an 80 acre farm on Sweden’s west coast in a landscape noted for its stunning variation in biotopes, rich in edges and diversity. The property, which borders an island nature reserve, stretches from the sandy flats by the ocean, along a trout stream, into highland plateaus of firs and blueberry bushes.

The fields, forests and ridges provide ample opportunities for exploring and deepening our relationship to a diversity of beings. Here you can immerse yourself in close encounters with the wild, watch browsing moose, follow lynx trails or harvest mussels from the sea. Thanks to the generous Swedish right to roam tradition, visitors can also enjoy exploring the surrounding lands.

The family, which includes a horse, cats and ducks, honours the farms’ 650 year old tradition by tending the lands with the intent to maximize biological and cultural diversity, offering workshops in nature awareness, tracking, permaculture and much more. A three-story wooden guest-house on the site has offered visitors a place to relax since 1929.
