The next 10 Day Reconnecting with Nature Course & Retreat by Tim Wigley will take place at Terra-Khaya Eco Backpackers in Hogsback, 13-23 October 2016. The 10 day in-depth course will focus on reconnecting with nature at a deeper level. Applying techniques such as permaculture design will be explored during this workshop; in a life enhancing way. The course will be also be assisted by Shane, Earth Guardian at Terra-Khaya.
The essence of this workshop will be about creating a deep appreciation for nature and the way ecosystem processes work. It is this appreciation that becomes the foundation for using tools like Permaculture Design, Holistic Management and Green Building in order to design landscapes around human settlements that are vibrant, healthy and self-regenerating.
These topics are the basket of tools we would like to present and use as we seek to work with nature in a regenerative way: ? Life of the Soil ? Mulching ? Compost Making ? Succession and Productivity ? Communities of Plants (Guilds) ? Permaculture Principles ? Natural Farming ? Organic Gardening Methods ? Listening, Observing & Allowing the Land to tell you! ? Design Principles ? Water Cycle ? Sun Energy ? ?Pests ? and Protection ? Tree Planting ? Food Forests ? Seedling Production ? Herbs and Healing ? Vetiver Grass ? Sacred Eating ? Living Fences ?
