Tom and Zaia Kendall from the Permaculture Research Institute Sunshine Coast went to Vanuatu and are hoping to set up two Master Plan sites there to educate local Ni-Vanuatu people about erosion control and soil rebuilding through Permaculture.
As part of teaching a Permaculture course for the Adventist Development and Relief Agency, Tom went to a small village on the island of Malakula in Vanuatu, and found greywater systems and under- and overstory growing methods for cacao and coconut.
As part of our 10 week Permaculture Life Skills Internship, but also open to external students (people not undertaking the Internship), we will be starting a 5 day Self Reliance course this coming Monday (10th September).
The curriculum for our 10 week long Permaculture Life Skills Internships, which will teach students practical permaculture and self reliance skills.
