An Unforgettable Learning Adventure - Training of Teachers Edge Event
"Permaculture gives people a place to be a part of the solution"
- Rosemary Morrow
It was a beautiful blue day in the grassy hills near the border of Wales, the beginning of an unforgettable learning adventure.
An inspiring group of teachers and actionaries met at the new Applewood Permaculture Centre to share in a life changingly awesome experience, taking a teacher training from three truly exceptional permaculture teachers: Rosemary Morrow, Looby Macnamara and Chris Evans.
This historic 9 day activation included a mosaic of learnings about creative facilitation, dynamic teaching methods, presentation skills, course convening and accelerated learning. The group came together from all across the world including Australia, South Africa, Canada, Spain, Israel, Netherlands, Belgium and England bringing a diversity of perspectives and personalities.
Together we played games, practiced teaching and facilitation, shared meals and gathered around the fire to deepen our understanding and practice of permaculture. Joining together in a learning guild, this unique group shared in farm chores and had a transformative experience pushing our edges to step forward into an empowered new life path.
This was the first in a series of courses that are part of a Planetary Permaculture Pilgrimage that continues at the Sustainability Centre including a Resilience Training with Rosemary Morrow, Dynamic Groups, Dynamic Learning course with Robin Clayfield and Looby Macnamara, and a Social Permaculture Course with Starhawk, Robin Clayfield, Looby Macnamara, Robina McCurdy and Peter Cow.
These are edge events leading up to this year's incredible International Permaculture Convergence in London, in September.
