Permaculture Learning Group2 (PLG2

Rationale The need to address the pressing environmental & sustainability issues has become undeniably urgent today. Permaculture proposes a new perspective directed towards: “Redesigning our way of life based on Nature,” leading to simple yet effective solutions doable here and now today. PLG2 Objectives The Permaculture Learning group seeks to internalize a way of thinking and designing that leads to a sustainable way of life, based on the principles from the natural world derived by Bill Mollison & David Holmgren. The general goal of the group is to learn how to re-design one’s way of life based on Nature, and in doing so advance toward the establishment of localized eco-systems that are stable, productive and resilient. The specific output of the learning group participants is to prepare a permaculture inspired design solution for a specific personal project/s that may commence after the 8 module program, or be an update/upgrade of an ongoing project. Qualified Participants Only individuals who have proven interest & personal positive action in relation to environmental and sustainability issues are allowed to join. Furthermore, only those who genuinely seek to learn the permaculture mind & heart and approach may join the learning group so as to avoid time that could be lost in theoretical & polemical discussions. It is important that all who join the learning group have been through a suitable permaculture orientation session. Methodology In order to attain the maximum learning over the 8 module program; the following methodology shall be utilized: • 8 x 3 hour group sessions, once a week 6-9pm, dates to be agreed by group • assigned personal study materials: videos & reading materials in digital format • assigned personal learning activities between sessions • group discussions • field visit(s) • permaculture design project + presentation Organizational items • coordinator for PLG2: Emma Ramas • an attendance of no less than 18 hours is required for the issuance of the certificate of attendance • participants will need a computer to access learning materials provided in digital format • organizational meeting shall be called before the start of program • planned start of program: last week of Feb or early March 2011 Items provided for participants • Book: Earth User’s Guide by Rose Mary Morrow • DVD or USB with digital learning materials • Permaculture T shirt • Certificate of Attendance • Suitably healthy food & drink during the sessions Learning Guides Joel Lee, entrepreneur, permaculture designer and qualified technical trainor, completed Permaculture training with Geoff Lawton in NSW Australia in March 2008, several permaculture projects including KPAF in Carcar, KGZ in Kamagayan Cebu City, Elicon Café, business applications of Permaculture in partnership with Mayflower Hotels & Properties Group, founding team leader of Permaculture in Cebu, Organizer of First Philippine Permaculture Convergence Feb 2010, current CEO MRI, Founder & Managing Director of Gelato Eliseo formerly Technical Director & Trainor Don Bosco School of Printing-Makati (1992-96), formerly Production Manager Don Bosco Press-Makati (1991-96), formerly Technical Coordinator Don Bosco Out of School Youth Training Program-Labangon
