Description

Our Introduction to Permaculture workshop is your gateway to sustainable living. If you are looking for ways to a more ecological lifestyle, this could be the beginning of your journey.

Join us for an inspiring day of discovering and/or strengthening your understanding of permaculture! In the morning, we'll dive into the ethics and principles of permaculture, and how they are applied in designing harmonious, ecologically sound landscapes as well as lifestyles. We will wander through the farm, unlocking key principles and techniques, and observe the natural landscape with a stroll through a forest patch nearby.

In the second half the morning, we will get our hands dirty and learn practical skills that can be applied right away through hands-on exercises such as building a compost pile. After a rejuvenating lunch break, let your creativity flow as we engage in a dynamic design exercise. Put your newfound knowledge into practice and start to design your sustainable future.

How to prepare

How to prepare Arrival: To ensure a smooth start, we kindly request that you arrive 10-15 minutes prior to the workshop commencement. Parking: For those arriving by car, we have a limited number of parking spaces available directly at the farm. In the event on-site parking is full, there are convenient off-site parking areas on Jalan 2 and Jalan 3, just a short walk away. We'll provide guidance on these designated parking options. General Recommendations: - Dress comfortably for outdoor activities. Closed-toe shoes or boots are ideal for exploring the farm. - Bring a refillable water bottle to stay hydrated throughout the day. - Consider additional items such as mosquito repellent, sunscreen, a sun hat, sunglasses for sun protection, and a pen and notebook to capture valuable information, insights, and inspirations! Refreshments and Lunch: The workshop runs from 8:30 AM to 5:00 PM, with a break for lunch. Please note that lunch is not provided. You have the option to bring your own lunch, and the nearby Taman Melawati offers a delectable array of dining choices and excellent coffee to recharge during the break. Rest assured, we'll keep your energy levels up throughout the day with tea and snacks.
