This is an Advanced Permaculture and Ecosystem Design course!

You do not have to have a degree in landscape architecture, or a  Permaculture Design Course, but we do expect you to work on this kind of  professional level during the course.
Everyone can step up  from any technological level, or from any kind of knowledge about plants  or permaculture, but must be willing to step up.
We will work with pencil and paper (provided), but also with Adobe Illustrator.
Any version above 6.0 will do. So, take you own laptop. If you do not  own one, please let us know, we can see if we can arrange a rental for  you at a reasonable price.
If you do not own Illustrator yet, you can start a free 30 day trial. One word of advice:  on’t start your trial too early! Here we say the same thing: you do not  need to know the software already, but a professional working capacity  with Office tools on a computer is a must and a willingness to learn  too.
Here you can find good tutorials on Illustrator.
We will provide for a binder fill of information, paper, pens, and a database full of examples and design elements.
If you have maps or data of your own project or homestead, please don’t hesitate to bring them.
Wifi and a printer will be available.
The course will be given in English.
