Permaculture Theory & Practicum: Darren Doherty (Chicago)

August 16, 2014 - August 19, 2014

Darren Doherty Workshops

Darren J Doherty (of Regrarians Ltd.) one of “the world’s leading experts” in Permaculture will be conducting an Applied Permaculture course in a 140 acre property in Elburn, Illinois and a 54 acre farm in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Darren is often called a “teacher’s teacher” & “consultant’s consultant”  He has been described as “one of the most prolific permaculture designers on Planet Earth.”  His greatest strength is his practical application of Permaculture on nearly 2000 farms and properties that he has designed or developed in 47 different countries.  See Farm Implementations by Regrarians Ltd clients.

 The class is designed in such a manner that both novices and experts will benefit from the practical application of Permaculture Design.

If you know what Permaculture is, join us to take your knowledge and experience to the next level.  Work with Darren as he applies the principles of Permaculture Design to each of the properties to develop a Permaculture plan that is both sustainable and profitable.

Find out how Darren applies his Regenerative Design Principles with a methodology called “Regrarianism.”  “Regrarian’s are those who are actively undertaking the serious and timely process of regenerating, restoring, rehabilitating, rehabitating, rekindling, and rebooting production landscapes across this planet.

The first two days will be spent applying Permaculture principles around the Regrarians Platform:

The investigation and study of these elements will create an action plan to transform the farm from an orchard to a stacked sustainable enterprise in the first two days of the Applied Permaculture Design Course (Theory).

The next two days will be spent implementing the plan, explaining how to accomplish the plan, and setting a Gantt Chart for planned actions.  Find out where Permaculture is headed and learn the topics and use of Regrarian Design, including Polyface Farming Systems + Keyline Design & Plowing.

See the Outline of the Course.

Students are welcome for the first two days ($260 with advance sign up), last two days ($260) or for all four days of the course ($520). Work study can be used to fund part of the course as applicable.
