    THE AIM OF THIS BOOK IS...


    To provide a wide range of practical and comprehensive guidelines, tools,


    and techniques for delivering effective Permaculture workshops. It includes


    over 200 presentations, creative thinking exercises, and practical hands-on


    exercises, which can be used by local facilitators to design and implement


    effective courses appropriate to the needs in their area. It has been


    designed to work in conjunction with the companion books ‘‘A Resource


    Book for Permaculture – Solutions for Sustainable Lifestyles” and


    “The Facilitator’s Resource Book for Permaculture Training and


    Assessment.”


    These workshop techniques include knowledge and practical techniques for


    environmental rehabilitation and sustainability, strengthening community


    resilience and local economies. The contents of the book are based on concepts


    of deep ecology, the inter connectedness of our environment and culture,


    and the principles and ethics of sustainable community development.
