First Permaculture course in Singapore

There is tremendous damage being done to the environment by modern industrial agriculture through fossil fuel use for fertilisers, contamination of rivers through run-offs of pesticides, destruction of soils and decimation of insect populations. We have to think of alternative ways to grow food in a holistic way reflecting natural ecosystems instead of destroying them so as to provide healthy nutrition to an ever growing population.

Permaculture is a design science which emulates the diversity and sustainability of natural ecosystems. It does not pollute or degrade the environment, but enriches it, at the same time meeting human requirements. When applied to an urban landscape through innovative use of space, it actually leads to energy efficiency, reduction of food miles and fossil fuel usage, and provides healthy, nutritious, local food.

The first ever Permaculture course is going to be conducted at Singapore from the 28th to 31st of May.

For more details about this course, venue, cost, registration, timing and other details, please check the website of the organisers

  1. Hi Bhavani,

    i’ve often seen your name on Andy’s Facebook. Thanks so much for promoting the Introduction to Permaculture Workshop. And thanks for loving Mother Earth. Hope i’ll get to meet you in person one day :)

    peace, ruyu

  2. Thanks for visiting this space and hope to meet you too, Ruyu! This is the very first for Singapore, and I hope many will take the opportunity to really understand that we can grow food in small spaces, in a holistic way without destroying the planet.
