The Permaculture Design Course conducted is set up to help Aranya Agricultural Alternatives to create demonstration farms and sites in local villages that teach and spread permaculture techniques throughout rural India. Aranya gets many requests from local farmers for assistance in designing and implementing permaculture on their land.
Permaculture offers a solution based approach to conscious design. It alters how one lives their life, their relationship with Mother Earth and all her life-forms. Therefore, this course is for anyone, regardless of origin, gender, age who would like to live an ecologically balanced life and contribute towards a sustainable future. Click here for more details.
The Permaculture Design Course is an internationally recognized, 72-hour course resulting in a Permaculture Design Certificate (PDC). Credit for this course is now accepted by a growing number of universities around the world.
The course provides an introduction to Permaculture design as set forth by the movement’s founder, Bill Mollison in 1978. The word ‘Permaculture’ is a contraction of “Permanent Agriculture” and also of “Permanent Culture”. The aim of Permaculture is to create systems that are ecologically sound, economically viable and self sustaining. Click here for more details.
Aranya Agricultural Alternatives is also very happy to welcome interns who are able to make a long term commitment of a minimum of 6 months.
During the course of internship, students will be mentored by Narsanna Koppula and team in creating their own permaculture projects, carrying out and following up on long-term results.
Volunteers are expected to give a minimum commitments of 3 months, Aranya is a busy, active NGO who does not have the resources to host volunteers for shorter terms; as the projects they need help with require training and follow through with implementation.
