Introduction To Permaculture - Pai, Mae Hong Sorn

Recommended Posts

Hello!

We are a small natural style organic farm located in the North of Thailand just outside of Pai city in Mae Hong Sorn province.

From October 10th to October 17th we are running a course on an introduction to Permaculture.

We have found that for many people without a background in some kind of farming, agriculture, ecology, etc that a full Permaculture Design Certificate is too much to take in one go.

So we have created this introductory course to open a new way of looking at natural systems and inspire you all to begin a lifelong learning.

We will be teaching all of the basics of Permaculture with a mix of classroom, observational and practical activities.

Participants will have a chance to see both an established and an establishing system.

We would love to have you here to join us.

Please visit our website for more details.

Thank you!

Check the website, the prices are there.

To the OP all the best I hope your course is a success. Not strictly my cup of tea but definitely a practical life style here in LOS.

Is the farm certified organic?

A fascinating clash of ideals? Natural or organically certified.... Nature is exactly that, organic certification comes with compromises and a cost. I'm not being clever but it seems to me that if man hadn't stuck his finger in the pie maybe there wouldnt be a need to get certified at all. :rolleyes:

Hunters and gatherers may claim "natural" food sources; with any farming the compromises begin. How far will you go to produce bumper crops and eonomic gain, and what will you give up to do it? And what is socially/environmentally acceptible? Organic and permaculture systems are just trying to get as close as possible to un-polluted and environmentally responsible food production. Organic certification may be flawed, but it is one way to have some standards for farming practices and food quality. Certification is really only an issue for commercial farms that want to compete in an organic food marketing system and need to demonstrate their compliance with standards and quality for that industry.

BTW, organic and permaculture are not necessarily synonymous. Permaculture may or may not use strict organic growing standards. Permaculture takes it to another level, strict organic or not, by incorporating a larger picture of the entire environment in planning home, farm and community land use systems. Check it out! Whether you are interested in organic farming or not, you will gain a great deal by learning some of the principals of the Permaculture view. It's practical and cost-effective and strives to be environmentally responsible.

TacomePai: An orientation course in Permaculture is a good contribution; I hope that you are successful. don
