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.
