This is permaculture teacher training with a difference! 

Linda Woodrow and Peter Lewis both have decades of experience in off-grid permaculture homesteading, social permaculture and intentional community, commercial permaculture primary production, community garden development, and for the last four years, retrosuburban permaculture. Linda Woodrow is a Permaculture Australia Board member, long term blogger at The Witches Kitchen, author of the best-selling "The Permaculture Home Garden" and the prescient novel about setting up for climate change "470".  Peter Lewis works as a facilitator in a social housing community garden and is President of Coffs Regional Community Gardens.  

But knowing something and being able to teach it are two different things.  

This course is seven days of intense, experiential learning with two people who are not only permaculture legends but also qualified and experienced teachers, of teaching.    

What they also have in common is a background in education.  Peter is a qualified high school teacher with a special interest and expertise in teaching people who come from a background of educational disadvantage. He is also a graduate of a Rowe Morrow Permaculture Teacher Training course. Linda Woodrow is a qualied vocational education teacher with a Grad Dip Voc Ed and a TAE Diploma, who has years of experience teaching teachers within the vocational education system. 

Whether you aim to teach classic a Permaculture Design Course, short courses in community garden settings, right livelihood training, university courses or school garden courses, face-to-face or online, adults or teenagers, this course will equip you with the skills and confidence to launch into a vocation and right livlihood as a permaculture teacher.  

You will learn:

  • The social dimensions of learning - people care in learning spaces 
  • Non-verbal language and managing contagious stress
  • Learning objectives and learner-centred education
  • Learning styles and learning cycle 
  • Beyond chalk and talk or Death by Powerpoint - experiential and interactive learning
  • Transformational learning - how we create memorable experiences and "aha!" moments
  • Structuring a session plan and managing time
  • Pace and responsiveness - staying on track and being open to being led off it
  • Challenging situations
  • Designing a PDC or other longer course
  • Asking for feedback
  • Doing all this in alignment with permaculture ethics and principles

It's a jam-packed seven days, but there is also time to hang out with your classmates, make some big permaculture connections, and possibly do a little whale watching?
