Permaculture as a curriculum has been a significant success in training participants to restore Planetary Health internationally. Rosemary Morrow, author of The Earth User’s Guide to Permaculture and Permaculture Teaching Matters, has received international acclaim for her work training permaculture practitioners and teachers around the world. Lis Bastian, who co-founded the Blue Mountains Permaculture Institute with Rosemary, has taught with her for fourteen years. She is currently senior Program Lead for the Blue Mountains Planetary Health Initiative.

This course is designed to provide the necessary skills and confidence to deliver the internationally recognised Permaculture Design Curriculum to students anywhere. Students will be able to develop a curriculum, structure a short or long course to maximise student learning, and design effective learning resources. By the end of the course all participants will have had the hands-on experience of a range of teaching methods and strategies, and will understand how to inspire and engage learners in a way that results in deep and meaningful learning.

This is a subsidised program, with a number of scholarships for young people who’ve been part of the Blue Mountains Pluriversity’s Permaculture and Social Enterprise Design Program. It is being supported by the Blue Mountains Permaculture Institute, Blue Mountains City Council’s Planetary Health Initiative and has received funding from Wentworth Healthcare, provider of the Nepean Blue Mountains Primary Health Network, as part of the Australian Government’s Empowering our Communities Initiative.
