Observation and Mapping Course 2018

Observation and Mapping Course 2018

19th - 22nd March 2018
 
This training has been developed to assist participants in the early stages of any design process - the observation and survey of a site and its steward. While a few days is limited time to fully observe a site, much can still be learned by being present on a piece of land, examiningand trying out different observation and mapping tools, and by sharing experience. Hence this training takes participants through a hands-on, land-based design process on a real site, bringing permaculture theory to life.
