Arboretum Marbella Offers World-Class Permaculture Course

Arboretum Marbella Offers World-Class Permaculture Course

pdcArboretum Marbella is an environmental project which has been operating on the Costa del Sol for two years and held the first Permaculture Design Course in the area in 2012. This course will be held again in October and is an internationally recognised qualification which in the words of Director Alejandro César Orioli, “is one of the most effective ways to  face the current financial crisis and build a sustainable future through education, enabling and taking action.”

Permaculture is a holistic system which deals with the design, planning and construction of spaces where people can relate to nature in an ecologically sustainable way, but which is socially beneficial and economically viable.

By applying different techniques into the various components of a system you can make all the elements work to their best ability, reduce energy use and get the best returns in a sustainable way. Techniques can be applied to the construction of homes and buildings, food production, energy use, water use etc. to make them more sustainable and productive.

The objectives of PDC 2013 at Arboretum Marbella are to enable the students with permaculture techniques and give them a holistic vision that they can then develop in their own homes, businesses or communities. The course is for anyone interested in acquiring practical skills and theoretical knowledge in order to develop a sustainable and productive way of life.

During the 13 days of the course (of which 10 are obligatory) attendees will obtain a clear understanding of the theory of permaculture so they can confidently create their first permaculture design plan by the end of the course.

Arboretum Marbella’s PDC 2013 takes place from 18-30th October and all the information is available on the website www.arboretummarbella.org/pdc.

This course will be taught in Spanish.
