Message par pfco » 05 Jan 2018 08:56

afin de permettre au personnes qui travaillent de faire un CCP avec un minimum de jours de congés, nous avons planifié un stage qui profite des jours fériés et ponts d'avril.

voici les dates:
30 mars au 3 avril avec une journée pratique le 4 pour ceux qui souhaitent mettre les mains et le nouveau savoir en actions :super:
7 au 10 avril avec une journée pratique le 11 avril
27 avril au 1er mai avec une 3me journée pratique le 2 mai.

Le stage aura lieu à Miramont d'en bas, sur la commune de Montesquieu-Avantes en Ariège. Le lieu permet de rester sur place, pour l'hébergement veuillez contacter Aurélie et Arnaud par mail à
Notre formateur Rakesh Rootsman Rak est anglophone, le stage sera donc en anglais, avec des traduction si nécessaire. :langue: N'ayez pas peur, l'anglais de Rakesh est très compréhensible, il a beaucoup d'expérience avec le formation an anglais comme langue étrangère pour les élèves. Voici le programme plus en détail...


This fully certified course (certified by Permaculture Association Britain, and Roots n Permaculture School) will delve deep into how we can use permaculture to create rich beneficial relationships between people, communities and their surroundings, including how to grow food, build houses and create economies, while also enriching and taking care of nature.

Special emphasis will be put in creating a temporary community for the duration of the course, where we use social permaculture tools to make sure everyone's needs are met, so we can all enjoy living together in a joyful, supportive learning environment.



Permaculture is a design system for creating abundance in all aspects of our lives. Permaculture teaches us how build natural homes, grow our own food, restore diminished landscapes and ecosystems, catch rainwater, build communities, take care of waste and much more.

The word 'permaculture' historically comes from 'permanent agriculture' and has evolved into 'permanent culture' - it is about living lightly on the planet, and making sure that we can live in harmony with nature while sustaining human activities for many generations to come.
Permaculture is a rigorous and systematic set of tools, ecological principles and methodologies, underpinned by ethics, which help us to design and create this culture of permanence. A culture that allows us to design how we cater for all our needs and the needs of the planet and all its creatures, without exploiting or depriving other humans or creatures of their needs.

The ultimate goal is to create systems that create abundance for all humans, creatures and mother earth, without exploitation of humans, animals or earth’s non renewable resources.

With permaculture insight we can design our inner tranquillity, it can be applied to creating integrated and supportive communities, building or retrofitting houses to be more energy efficient, creating ethical businesses and livelihoods, as well as creating rich abundant low maintenance food growing spaces.

=== PDC Course Syllabus ===

The course will from day one put into practice social permaculture. We will create a community and practically explore how we ensure everyone's needs are met, and how everyone can safely express themselves, without conflict. Having found our inner balance and balance within our newly forged community, we then move into exploring the traditional permaculture syllabus, including environmentally friendly food growing; soil generation; water management; house building; alternate economics and livelihood, etc.

Having explored the theory of permaculture ethics, principles and approach to challenges, we will then move on to in depth design work and practicals (hands-on work), which solidifies the theory.
The emphasis remains on learning the patterns and concepts that are applied in permaculture, so you can apply this to all aspects of your life after the course has finished. Hence the practicals will be a way to reinforce the theory and design work that we cover.

Where and when appropriate we will visit nearby intentional communities and projects that integrate permaculture in their design (subject to consent by the students).

The syllabus will cover the following areas

- Principles of Natural Systems
- Sustainable Design Methodologies
- Patterns in Nature, Culture and Society
- Reading the Land & Understanding Natural Processes
- Large Scale Land Restoration Techniques
- Water Harvesting Technique
- Design Principles of Sustainable Human Settlements
- Grey Water Recycling
- Natural Building Strategies
- Cultivated & Productive Ecologies
- Food Forests, Plant Guilds, Gardens for Self-Sufficiency
- Energy Conservation Technologies
- Appropriate Technologies and Renewable Energies
- Urban Environment Permaculture
- Wildlife Management and Biological Pest Control
- Community Activism
- Invisible Structures: People, Community, Economics, EcoVillages
- Sociocracy; Dragon dreaming; Six thinking hats
- Community Supported Agriculture
- At the end of the class, students engage in a group design project.

=== TEACHERS ===

Lead Instructor

Rakesh Rootsman Rak – An experienced Permacultre designer teacher, forest garden specialist, yoga teacher, homeopath and reggae DJ. Rakesh has been designing and teaching permaculture to individuals and communities since 2009, and has taught over 120 permaculture, forest gardening, eco village design and related courses. His design portfolio ranges from a forest garden on part of a 30-hectare ecovillage in Croatia that he co-owned through to many urban community food growing gardens, private farms and back gardens as well as designing collaborative businesses, urban water retention systems and even computer software and documentation systems. Rakesh is also passionate about sharing his journey of self empowerment (learning how to make all the things you need for yourself rather than relying on the system to provide for you), this includes eco architecture (low impact housing); capturing and storing energy (electricity, heat, lighting, etc); fuel efficient heating systems (rocket heaters and stoves); water capture, purification and recycling systems, natural bee keeping and so on. He is one of the founders of the Children in Permaculture project which was launched at the international permaculture convergence in this year. So be prepared to go off on inspirational tangents occasionally.

The venue is an old "masters house" with barns and other annexes, which is being renovated to become a new permaculture space in Ariège. Camping space and a few rooms as dormitories, as well as a kitchen, will be ready for your accommodation. We will have the opportunity to discover the concept of the venue at different moments throughout the PDC. Permaculture ethics is applied to all levels of the work done and "green" retrofitting applied wherever possible. A great space to discover that we will fill with joyfull life for three weekends.

=== FOOD ===

To create a deeper sense of community, throughout the course we will create teams who will help cook every day. We will create a system which allows us to express what our dietary needs are, so that we ensure every meal is ideal for everyone.


The cost for the training is based on gift economy, where participants are invited to contribute what they can afford and are willing to pay. The cover the training costs we need to raise on average €350 per person. However we invite you to propose how much you would like to contribute (between €200 and €600. We encourage those of you who can contribute more to do so, which should allow us to cover our costs comfortably. If there is a shortfall in the final sum (which by experience is unlikely), we will request the shortfall to be covered anonymously via a magic hat process. This process is part of the permaculture ethos, which allows people to pay according to their capacity, while meeting the needs of the hosts, teachers, etc.


To make the most of the PDC and increase the exchange in-between participants, we invite people to stay on site for the nights as well. The hosts propose sleeping space in dormitories or camping spots outside. Camping-cars can be placed as well. The costs for staying overnight are 5€ per day = 70€ for the full course. Please contact Aurélie et Arnaud by e-mail at to reserve your spot.

=== FOOD COSTS ===

To ensure we keep the food costs and quality at a level the students require, we are adopting the tried and tested self organising method. This means we will ask you to either bring enough food ingredients to cover your food needs for the duration of the course or bring a mix of food and cash. The food could include home grown veg, grains, preserves, etc. The cash will go into a pot which will be used to buy food as and when required, which will be managed by an elected group of participants. We kindly request everyone to only bring vegan, vegetarian food, which we will pool together and collaboratively cook in teams. If appropriate, fresh organic veg will be contributed from the venue.
