Organised by Cultivate, in association with Village Education Research and Training (VERT) and Cloughjordan Community Farm. Feasta tutors include Bruce Darrell and Ciaran Mulloy.

This will be a unique opportunity to learn invaluable design and practical skills embedded in an active ecovillage and vibrant community.

Tutors also include two of Ireland’s foremost Permaculturalists: Graham Strouts and Hannah Mole. Remote design advice will be provided by Albert Bates from The Farm, Tennessee. Agricultural, green and natural building, nutritional and other permaculture knowledge will be shared by a host of experts resident in the ecovillage, including Ben Whelan, Kevin Dudley, Bruce Darrell, Davie Philip and Eileen Flanagan. Ciarán Mulloy from FEASTA will be joining us to cover economic and money issues.

This is a fully-accredited (by U.K. Permaculture Association) seventy-two hour Permaculture Design Certificate Course. It is full-time (and “full-on”) from Friday evening until the following Sunday at lunch time.
