Children in Permaculture Training of Teachers

CiP Training Courses

The Children in Permaculture courses inspire educators to take children outdoors to learn from nature. The main courses currently on offer include:

* 12 hour Introduction to Engaging Children in Permaculture course (online or in person)

* Permaculture Design Course for Educators

* 5 day Practitioners’ course

* 5 day Train the Trainer course

The 12 hour Introduction to Engaging Children in Permaculture course demonstrates different activities which you can do with children outdoors from the session plans in the Children in Permaculture Manual to the activities on the website. Highly experienced trainers introduce the permaculture ethics and principles in a way which enables students to see how they could introduce these to children’s lives. Lots of ideas are presented about designing and creating gardens with and for children, getting students motivated to create some in their own schools or gardens.

To see if there are any upcoming courses, please see the Children in Permaculture Events Page. The courses can be delivered online or in person. 

The Introduction to Engaging Children in Permaculture course is an interactive, face to face event, so experienced trainers can come to you so if you have a group of people and a venue to host a course, please do get in touch.
