SOIL To Help Host a Permaculture Design Certificate Course in June
This June, SOIL staff will be collaborating with the people at Sadhana Forest in Anse-à-Pitres, Haiti to offer a Permaculture Design Certificate Course in Haitian Creole. SOIL’s new Sustainability and Capacity Development Consultant, Jean Arnaud, will be leading the two week course that will cover a wide range of topics such as organic food production, ecological pest management, erosion control, drought proofing, energy conservation, and eco-friendly housing design.
Participants for this sold-out class will earn a Permaculture Design Certificate at the end of the 72 hour course and will be expected to share their new skills with others. Many SOIL staff are planning on participating and we look forward to using information from this course to improve our agricultural work and the materials presented in our outreach and education programs.
Dates: June 3-14, 2013
Location: Anse-à-Pitres, Haiti
Language: Haitian Creole
