Introduction to the Permaculture Hungary August 21-23

Permaculture Design Course (PDC) 2017 Ireland - May 19-June 2



/// magyar szöveg lentebb ///

 Basic understanding of permaculture

• What you will learn:
– Permaculture principles: Overview of permaculture design and the philosophy / ethics behind permaculture.
– Concepts and themes in design: begin to understand the components – stability, diversity, order, chaos, yields, resources, time sequences- that are the strength of our systems. It will become clear why nature is our model and how the interactions with the natural systems create resilience.
– Methods of designing: You learn to analyse what components should go into a design, how natural systems can and should be included. And where these things are best positioned on the site as a holistically engaged environment.
– Pattern understanding: Patterns are recurring forms of events that we can find all around us in nature. Understanding these basic underlying patterns of natural phenomena is a powerful tool for design.
– Trees & tree energy transaction: You will learn about the complex interactions between trees and their physical environment.
– Water and aquaculture: Water is the one that connects it all, in this section you will learn about specific strategies of water conservation and control for the humid climate of Ireland, and for specific land form sections.
– Soil: Soil is a precious resource and we will learn about repairing soils healthy food web through various ways of stimulating the soil food web with techniques like compost extract, bio-fertilizers, and chop and drop.
– Earthwork: Earthworks set the framework for garden bed or food forest creation and is inextricably tied to harnessing the energetic exchange of water in the landscape.
– Social permaculture: Here we will go into the social element of permaculture and how we can create local communities moving towards a sustainable future.

Each of the chapters will give you a basic introduction of Bill Morrison permaculture design manual.

A permakultúra alapszintű megértése

• Mit tanulsz majd itt:

– a permakultúra alapelveit: átfogóan összeszedve, mi a permakultúrás módszer maga. Emellett a permakultúra etikai és filozófiai alapjait.

– a tervezéshez kapcsolódó elképzeléseket és témákat: elkezded megérteni az alkotórészeket – állandóság, változatosság, rendszer, káosz, hozam, anyagi források, időkeretek – ezek adják a rendszerünk erejét. Tisztán érthetővé fog válni, hogy miért a természet a mintáját követjük, és hogy növeli a rezilienciát a természetes rendszerekkel való kapcsolódás.

– a tervezés módszereit: bemutatjuk, miképp lehet analizálni, hogy milyen alkotóelemek kerüljenek a tervedbe, valamint, hogy hogyan kell, és hogyan lehetséges bevonni a természeti rendszereket mindebbe. Hogy tudjuk úgy elhelyezni az egyes elmeket egy adott területen, hogy az egy holisztikus összekapcsolódást alkosson.

– a mintázatok felismerését, megértését: ezek a formák visszatérő alakjai a természetben lezajló folyamatoknak. A természeti jelenségek alapvető mintázatainak megértése egy erőteljes eszköze a tervezésnek.

– a fa, és a fák energiaátalakítását: a fák és fizikai környezetük között létesülő komplex interakciókról fogsz tanulni

– víz és akvakultúra: a víz mindent összeköt. Ebben a szekcióban specifikus stratégiákat fogsz tanulni a víz visszatartásáról és hasznosításáról.

– talaj: a talaj egy kulcsfontosságú erőforrás. Megtanuljuk, hogy hogy hozzuk helyre a talajok egészséges táplálékhálóját – mindehhez olyan technikákat tanulunk, amik stimulálják a táplálékhálót. Ilyenek pl. komposztkivonatok, bio-tápoldatok, és mulcsozási technikák.

– földmunka: a földmunka adja meg a kerti ágyások, vagy az erdőkert megalkotásának keretét. Elválaszthatatlanul kötődik a víz tájban zajló energia-cseréjének a kihasználásához.

– közösségi permakultúra: itt belemegyünk a permakultúra szociális vonatkozásaiba – hogyan tudunk helyi közösségeket létrehozni úgy, hogy azok a fenntarthatóság irányába fejlődjenek.

Minden egyes fejezet egy alap tudást nyújt a Bill Mollison-nak a Permaculture Designers Manual könyvéről.
