Posted in Events, Movements by Holmgren Design Services on August 19th, 2010

This four-day residential course is designed to deepen understanding of permaculture principles, and improve conceptual skills and planning tools for permaculture practitioners, designers, activists and teachers.  A Permaculture Design Certificate and prior reading of Permaculture: Principles and Pathways Beyond Sustainability are highly desirable for participants to successfully gain from the course, and contribute to it. The core of these courses is the presentation and workshopping in groups of the format of design principles from Permaculture: Principles and Pathways Beyond Sustainability. Additional presentations and group work focus on Reading Landscape, Landscape Mapping, Energy Descent Scenarios and Community Mapping.  David Holmgren presents permaculture ideas through practical projects and personal example, providing a refreshing and unorthodox approach to the environmental issues of our time.

Simon Holmes a Court, Sustainable Cities Round Table – The Energy to Change, 20 May 2009

Posted in SCRT Videos, Sustainable Cities Round Tables by Virginia on June 10th, 2009

Simon Holmes a Court showcases the Hepburn Wind farm project which came into fruition due to the community’s desire to establish a community owned wind farm that would help match the electricity needs of the Hepburn Shire, and thus the Hepburn Wind Farm Project was born. Since then the project has progressed through the necessary stages of development, from preliminary site analysis through the Council planning process and now has a secure planning permit. And during the course of the project, the Wind Park has gained increasing support in the Hepburn Shire community.
