30 Bananas a Day!

Low fat, raw vegan friendly, 72 hour Permaculture Design Certificate (PDC) in Thailand July 2011!!

Yes, us frugivores will be catered for as well as cooked vegetarian.  This will be my second PDC after the teaching the first in Panama in December and I’m very looking forward to passing on the knowledge I have collected from many fantastic permaculture sites around the world.  I’ve been on a quest to learn how to be self sufficient to eventually develop my future property covered in an edible fruit forest!  Food forests have been my focus and are something my Geoff Lawton taught me a lot about on my 3 months training with him. The required animal content of the course will focus on things like; attracting wild animals by observing their natural habitats and foods and recreating those on your property and similar techniques.  Animals are an essential part of any natural ecosystem but this does not mean we have to cage them and abuse them to get them to do the work they instinctively do!

The course will be held at Tacomepai Organic Permaculture farm in Pai, Northern Thailand from Sunday the 17th of July till Sunday the 31st of July 2011   Cost is US$650 per person which includes three vegetarian meals per day(fruit and greens for us!), fruit and tea during break time, and accommodation in traditional bamboo bungalows (depending on numbers you may have to share living spaces).

I will try my absolute best to be there! I'll be interning at a farm just outside of Udon Thani (Nong Bua Lamphu to be exact) and I think this would be a profoundly enriching experience! Many thanks for posting this and making those fruitarian options so much easier for us all to relish in!! :-D


You're the man Stephen!!

Hey thanks Kam, I hope you can make it!

It's time for us fruities to make some waves in the Permaculture "omnivore" scene!



This looks incredible!!!

...and it will be even more so by you attending!

I hope to have us fruities be the majority of the course!

awww thanks! :)  You can post this in the events section here.


Will you teach how to grow only in the tropical climate there or can people apply what they learn anywhere, like even in a dessert?


Thanks! :)



The course covers all climates so the info can be applied anywhere in the world.




I couldn't imagine doing a PDC on raw gourmet food, I'd be falling asleep down the back of the class:)

I'll be covering how to plant a food forest but not detailed information on specific fruit trees.  Permaculture is so broad that the curriculum of a PDC is jam packed just covering the basics.  If you have the basics wrong though the details don't matter!
