The main objective of the adventure is to learn Permaculture through practice in service to local communities.
Permaculture can be called the art of relationship. It guides us to mimic the patterns and relationships we can find in nature and can be applied to all aspects of human habitation, from agriculture to ecological building, from appropriate technology to education. And even better, we can use permaculture to better understand community relationships.
We will learn Permaculture through educational service at various community partner sites, Bhupen’s Organic Farm in Tatopani, The Village of Paudwar, Shree Jana Adarsh, Secondary School in Kobang and Tibetan Settlement of Marpha.
All along the way, we will be observing the native systems in place, coming to a deeper understanding of Permaculture in the context of these systems, and engaging in hands-on workshops to implement more infrastructure at these sites.
Hands-on workshops may include, but are not limited to:
Site analysis & design
Permaculture Ethics & Principles
Natural Stone building
Temperate and Subtropical Permaculture
Food Forestry, Planting and Harvesting
Creation of Micro-climates
On day 6, in the village of Paudwar, we will have 4 different work shops for you to choose from, taught by local teachers in the village. The workshop topics will include:
Traditional Nepali Cooking
and space-intensive Farming (applicable to village-life, or urban-life)
