Two Day Course: Introduction to Permaculture in Kashmir

Who this course is for:



This course is an introduction to the design tools and principles of Permaculture and an exploration of its ability to create the conditions necessary for a culture of peace and abundance.

The course is for anyone who is interested in finding out what Permaculture is, and how to apply its tools, and principles to a number of situations and contexts. It is also relevant for people involved in peacework, and people looking for a different, holistic approach to change and fresh inspiration.

The teaching style of the course is varied in order to cover different learning styles; it is a highly participatory and engaging course, encouraging participants to bring in, and share their own knowledge and experience.

Participants gain:



  • A clear understanding of what Permaculture is, its origins, the context under which it came about and its development;
  • Knowledge of its ethical framework and the basic ecological principles;
  • An overview of its applications in various fields, as a response to social, economic and environmental challenges, and as a tool for personal transformation and social change;
  • An exploration of the concept of active hope.
