      What's In A Permaculture Course?
      You'll learn to use permaculture to create plentiful yields of food
      and beauty with little effort whilst increasing wildlife and
      building a sustainable planet for all. The course also covers
      ecobuilding, sewage, compost, eco-community and economics, and much
      more. You will be able to find a timetable for a typical course on
      the permaculture-steve website listed below, although innovations,
      adaptations to the venue, teachers or participants, and other fine-
      tunings are often made to each new course … but it's a good guide.

      Ecoforest is a not for profit organisation and a part of all the
      course fees help us work to promote sustainable living, natural
      health, permaculture and eco-communities.

      We can also support people working for their 2 year Diploma in
      Applied Permaculture Design.

      Permaculture @ Ecoforest Courses - what people say:
      "The course far exceeded my expectations and I learnt a whole lot
      more than permaculture. A life changing. life enhancing experience…
      I can't think of anything we've done on the course that isn't
      applicable and relevant in my life."

      "I love you and thank you very much. I couldn't expect - and didn't -
      such a powerful and mind shaking course."

      "The spiritual side was a big surprise for me, but a welcome one at
      this time in my life. It's a … good combination of land / spiritual
      aspects, and really great people!"

      "It was a great experience. Skills I will always keep with me.

      "Keep it up. Don't ever stop! I have been fortunate to have many
      incredible learning experiences … but none of them come close to
      these last two weeks. Thank you."

      More About Ecoforest
      The Mission of the Ecoforest project and Charitable Trust -
      Ecoforest Education for Sustainability (an Associated Project of the
      Peramculture Association UK, Charity No. 290897) - is to teach and
      enable people to live sustainably. We aim to help create paradise
      garden communities across the globe where residents, visitors and
      volunteers can sustain themselves in ways that sustain and enhance
      the environment for generations to come. Ecoforest was in part
      inspired by PFAF.

      There are many health, spiritual and life skills benefits from
      living here for those that become members or supporters. Ethical
      investors can help us develop this uniquely positive project. Many
      people can help the vision take root and grow.

      … more resident and visiting members, ethical investors and

      motivated, responsible and effective, and who can support themselves
      financially, perhaps running appropriate courses here.

      us (e.g. for 3 or 6 months or longer) taking on key tasks: garden
