October Permaculture Design Course


Love Green Urban Permaculture Project in Noordhoek

Outdoor classroom at Love Green Permaculture Noordhoek.

Permaculture Education Africa’s courses are now been held in a variety of venues depending on the time of year. We are now holding one in Noordhoek each year in April.

The Love Green Urban Permaculture site is a typical suburban context that Tahir and Larissa have been retrofitting since 2010. The property is off the grid and has its own electricity and water supply nested in an urban food forest that is now starting to produce. There is still much to be done before all niches in the system are filled and the system reaches maturity but at this stage, it is a thriving and diverse system with a range of interesting elements and systems that can be transferred into any permaculture context.

The site will be the base for the course and will host some of the practical sessions, specifically around vertical and container gardening, cold frames and other micro strategies that are needing implementation on the site.

We will also be working at a select urban site in the area. This site is a relatively blank canvas for us to design and implement an urban food forest and vegetable production system. This will be the site of much of our practical work and we will also be traveling around the city to explore other effective applications of permaculture design in the urban context.
