NEXT PROGRAM
 "Learning and exploring sustainable life principles"
from 1st to 15th november 2001
 


This is a basic program for 15 days, were the participant lives Permaculture
in every day activities.
During this time the student may learn Permaculture principles, and would
acquire basic skills and knowledge that would be very useful for their
further life projects.

The program is based on the research activities applied on our daily life
and experience and would be supported by the study of the diverse material.
Gaia has an actualized library on sustainable related issues, most of the
material is in English.

During the program there will be plenty of opportunities to see Permaculture
living systems in different development stages, and you may be actively
involved in this process and work.

For the foreign participants, it would be a great opportunity to practice
Spanish on a daily basis, and to learn the social and cultural Argentine
context as well. 

Some of the topics we would learn and practice together will be:
Permaculture principles and ethics
Design strategies 
Forest Garden 
Windbreaks 
Greenhouse 
Seed saving 
Ponds construction and maintenance
Natural building 
Appropriate technologies
Grey water systems/ dry compost toilets
Wind energy systems
Alternative economies
Natural cooking 
Group dynamics. Consensus decision making
Organized activities during 6 days a week (with one optional free week-end )
Theory (research, presentations, exchange circles)
Hands on learning (in different Permaculture areas)
Community work collaboration (cook, cleaning, maintenance)
Cost: US$300 

For those who have finished successfully this program and may be willing to
stay longer, and deep the experience we offer,
"Willing worker on Permaculture (1 month)"

This program is address to those who have finished program 1 or 2, and want
to stay to share the experience for a longer period, while they continue
helping in different areas of the Ecovillage project.

Also open for foreign participants that already had Permaculture background
and practice. 

The Volunteer work will be in exchange for your accomodation. You'll have to
pay for your food (us$5 per day).
