Volunteers and Helpers

    We are always looking for keen people to get involved ,it is in fact the very spirit of our project,  so if you have some time on your hands come over and join us. In exchange for your input we will happily provide you with accommodation and food. At present there is much work to be done in the garden, from growing to preserving, designing the outside areas to be more efficient and productive and also preparation for forthcoming events.  Maybe you will have some ideas we can work on too.  Email us for more info permaship2 [аt] gmail [dot ]com

    This June we look forward to welcoming a guest teacher  Doug Crouch from TreeYo Permaculture who will be sharing his experience and knowledge with us as we delve into the powers of recycling water from our households and getting food from water.  In addition to that, we will take a journey into the world of design from a permaculture perspective. Learning the principles of design both theoretically and interactively will allow one to begin to design for energy efficiency in all fields of sustainability. We will be learning permaculture principles that are reflections of the patterns of nature or natural law as it is sometimes called. 
    The course will be a finely woven meander of theory, interactive design exercises, and hands on application of the material.  Expect to dig and sweat but also to have a few "a ha" moments when exploring the power of Permaculture Design.  We will be setting up the landscape side of Greywater harvesting while also starting the initial stages of aquaculture implementation at the site.  So if you were ever curious about watering your plants from your shower, about growing plants in the medium of water, or how to lay out your property for maximum production with a low energy input please join us for this dynamic workshop.

 Our courses are a great place to meet people who  share curiosity and have a willingness to practice  a more sensical approach to living and life. Its also a place  to make  contacts and enjoy good company. Its a relaxed atmosphere in a beautiful place with great food, good music, lively nightlife ,if so desired,  and what we learn here is both exciting and practical. 
   In the evenings we open the stage to our guests to share with us there own  projects or interests and  have a room set aside with  multimedia projection and screen for this purpose and have enjoyed some great talks and presentation's ,if you are interested in this let us know ,we also encourage artists of all kinds to bring there work for display and sale click here for more info

    At the end of this course we hope you will  be armed with the inspiration and knowledge to start creating your own permaculture site and join in the experiment . Come, enjoy,  spread the word.

Bring your Creations with you 

Art and Music, the human expression of life, lays by the core of a fulfilled existence .This be so we want to promote artist's and musicians and creators of all kinds from the Permaship Center. We aim to do this in a number of way's.
    During our course's we will make exhibition's for Artist's to display and sell their work. We will not ask for any commission on the sales and will continue to offer work's to our visitors  and guest's indefinitely.
    If you are a musician  send us your music and we will also promote during our events and offer to our guests and visitors. We are also working closely with Artmospheric an upcoming crew of talented producers who host events throughout the year including an annual festival . They are always looking for new talent to take to the stage and we would happily make introduction's .

    In the future we can visualize  events held here specifically for music and art but we start small and simple, permaculture principle number 2 :). So get in touch ,send us your work ,your ideas and your co-operation.
