This 4-module online course empowers you to start growing your own food and to gain an insight into knowing where our food comes from.
As a participant, you will discover a road back to nature through 4 interactive webinars with Krishna.
Module 1 – Soil: Creating a permaculture garden or farm.
Covers the fundamental and basic ingredient of any and all successful organic farming: honor all organic matter, our bio-resources, by returning it to the land. This is our profit; not financial, but nutritional. All well-being starts with healthy soil.
Module 2 – Understanding Biodiversity: The sacred foundation of life.
Honor all the gifts that Mother Nature offers to us. Honoring them means eating them.
The circle garden is your first permaculture garden. This module incorporates many aspects of the philosophy of natural farming. Permaculture practices and the circle garden are easy to replicate in schools, public spaces, offices, hospitals, etc. This module has a huge social and economical value by reconnecting us to essential values such as nutrition, medicinal plants, community, and our relationship with mother nature.
Module 3 – Valuing local plants: Nutritional, medicinal, cultural, social and economic relevance
