‘Specialist’ refers to a specific area of specialist knowledge within or close to permaculture that the course will focus in on. Courses listed as specialist could include specific areas of society and management, or certain skills such as ‘make your own solar panel’, ‘wild medicine’, or ‘earthship building’.
Children in Permaculture
Many resources have been created, including surveying existing resources, writing case studies, creating films, and a new book:
Earth Care, People Care and Fair Share in Education: The Children in Permaculture Manual
The resources are for people working with children aged 3-12 years, such as school, nursery and kindergarten teachers, as well as those working in non-formal settings such as after-school or out-of-school club leaders (e.g. scout leaders), parents (whether natural, foster, adoptive or grandparents) and others who are aware of the importance of their role in children’s education.
