COFA (College of Fine Arts, UNSW) will be running the first delivery of a Permaculture Design Elective over winter break. Enrolment is limited to 24 places. (16 UG and 8 PG), Demand is high and we feel we will run each semester as a result.
It is a 6 UOC course and will run as a 1 week intensive. Monday June 25 – Sunday July 1
Mon – Fri classes will be held 10 – 4 in the new Design Rooms at Kensington Campus with a few off site local visits within walking / bus distance including Costa Geogiadis’s verge garden at Bondi and a couple of community gardens.
Sat – Sun – will be a field trip to a permaculture property near Sydney. We plan to camp there Friday and Saturday night and do some practical work – so it will be gloves, work boots and dirt under the nails. We have tents for everyone if you don’t have one of your own.
I will be working on the course outline over the next week or so with Cameron Little, a highly experienced and qualified instructor who will be our Lecturer for the course.
Assessment will be project based.
Course codes are SDES9758-10334 (PERM) and SDES3801-10337 (PERM)
