Volunteers and Helpers

    We are always looking for keen people to get involved ,it is in fact the very spirit of our project. During the Permaculture Design Course we will need some help with preparing and serving for meal times, keeping the site tidy and preparing for practicals. Email us for more info permaship2 [аt] gmail [dot ]com

    We are very excited to announce that this coming summer Bulgaria's first  Permaculture Design Course will be held at Permaship. We will be welcoming back Doug Crouch from TreeYo Permaculture to guide us through the fascinating realm of Permaculture Design during 2 weeks of inspirational learning.   This is a certificate course, which means participants will graduate through creation of their own design project for an existing site. The PDC certificate grants you the right to teach permaculture to others in any form other than teaching the PDC itself, for which you would also need to obtain a diploma.
    We have made every effort to make this PDC the most affordable  you can find whilst keeping the quality of teaching and hosting to the highest standards. We are looking forward to what promises to be an amazing event.  For course details click here

 Take a look at some photos of our previous Courses   

   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.  It's also a place  to make  contacts and enjoy good company.  There is a relaxed atmosphere in a beautiful place with great food, good music and what we learn here is both exciting and practical.  

    In the evenings we open the stage to our guests to share with us their own  projects or interests.  We have a room set aside with  a multimedia projection screen for this purpose and have enjoyed some great talks and presentations.  If you are interested in this let us know.  We also encourage artists of all kinds to bring their 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 and  spread the word.

Fees,Food and Accommodation 

The fee for this course is 650BGN /325Euro and  sliding scales fees apply.   A 50% deposit will be required to secure a place on the course with the other 50% payable on arrival.  The price includes camping accommodation and home made delicious organic food a lot of which we produce from the Permaship gardens. 

We have made every effort to keep the cost of this course as low as possible in order to make it accessible to more people . We do have considerable costs to cover for this course and  therefore if we do not reach the numbers the course cannot run. In the unlikely event of this we will return all deposits made as soon as possible. Deposits are also refundable for any other reason up to the 14th May 2011.

  We have a camping ground and you can bring your own tent or reside in one of our native Indian style tipis (places in the tipis are limited to twelve people, six in each). The Camping ground has access to toilets and an outdoor solar shower. We also have WiFi internet free of charge. 

 If you are not keen on camping than there are  some reasonably priced  hotel, apartment and room  options in the village starting from 10LV /5Euro a night.

Hotel IT, Hotel Saga - 0888-872506, Hotel Perenika, Guest house Sevt, Guest House Teres, and others. Hotel Saga is the closest to us and costs aprox 12lv/bed, hotel IT is not much further away and costs 25lv/bed, Sevt guesthouse is 10lv/bed in the summer and Teres guesthouse makes sense for groups of 10-12 people as then the price will be approx 9lv/bed.
