Permaculture Teacher Training-Fall 2016
Have you ever felt challenged by attempting to sum up permaculture into a 30 second ‘elevator speech?’ What about a thirty minute talk? One hour? It seems like the longer you have to talk about permaculture the easier it gets. Perhaps that is because permaculture covers such a wide variety of disciplines and subjects that the elevator speech just can’t do it justice?
Yet, try keeping that up for a full 72-hour PDC and, it doesn’t matter how many subjects you are able to cover, how knowledgeable you are, or how much depth you are able to go into on any particular topic, if all you do is talk you’ll have lost the audience, and with it the opportunity to inspire, before you’ve even begun to get to those really valuable edges. True teaching, in any subject, and the ability to get the information to stick inside of our students’ heads requires you to be an entertainer, not just a regurgitator of facts.
Teaching permaculture should never be a chore for either the student or the teacher. This 7-day Teacher Training Course has been specifically designed to equip you with the tools to make teaching Permaculture Design fun and inspirational for both you and your students.
