The first module, "Man and Other Animals", is the moment of the acquaintance of the participants of the course, who will study together during the summer and work in teams on design projects at the end. So, we will consider such topics as social interaction, building sustainable communities and teams. And the ecovillage is a suitable place for immersion in this topic. You will have the opportunity to look at the life of ecovillage, which is seven years old, to communicate with its inhabitants, to take part in discussions and to play games aimed at creating sustainable communities.


Also, we will look at the place of animals in permaculture and build a chicken tractor together. The third day will be devoted to the ecological building: we will visit a house constructed of straw panels and hemp, and try our own forces in a self-constructed building.


There will be a guided tour to the picturesque hills of the Permaculture Center and the estate 'Carrot Wolves', during which you will see a permaculture vegetable garden with different types of beds and numerous permaculture techniques, a pattern fruit garden, a cob house, rainwater collecting system, and many other things.


In the evening we will gather near the fire for communication.
