"Permaculture is the conscious design and maintenance of agriculturally productive systems which have the diversity, stability, and resilience of natural ecosystems. It is the harmonious integration of the landscape with people providing their food, energy, shelter and other material and non-material needs in a sustainable way."
Graham Bell, The Permaculture Way
The Mundo Nuevo team is delighted to declare its first all-inclusive permaculture class on its land!
Following permaculture principles, Mundo Nuevo is thriving every day to attain auto-sufficiency on an alimentary, energy, water, and financial level. We are very happy to share what we do with others and to inspire participants to have a lighter ecological footprint. A few practical examples include supplying our restaurant with fresh, organic veggies from our farm, our beekeeping, our expansive recycling system, and the various ways we learn from and support the local community.
Making our site and home a learning space for others is a dream come true!
This three-day introductory course will be led in English by our friends and colleagues, Marylin Wilson and Jilian Tayce. As international permaculture specialists, Marylin and Jilian have hosted many classes around the world. After a year working on their own project in Colombia, they are offering their time to share their experience with us for these 3 days.
This class will give you the theoretical tools and practical examples to understand what permaculture is all about and to start applying it in your daily life.
The course is rather intensive in order to cover as many aspects as we can. We will start with permaculture ethics and concepts, and finish by approaching design thinking for different climates.
This course is sure to be a lively, interactive, and thought-provoking experience.
We can't wait for you to join us for this memorable learning opportunity!
Class space is limited to 15 people, so reserve your spot now!
At the completion of the course, interested students have the opportunity to stay with us and to participate in Mundo Nuevo's successful volunteerprogram to immediately apply your knowledge! Please check our site for more information or email us if interested.
*While the class will be taught in English, there will be Spanish speakers on site to answer questions or make clarifications during breaks and meals. We will also offer future courses in Spanish. Please email us or like us on Facebook to find out about upcoming events!
