Recently the KKSDPP was granted permission to rezone 1 hectare of the farm as an Institutional Zone. This allows us to run our suite of permaculture and regenerative living courses once more.
Part of our new zoning directive is the redevelopment of the project’s training and accommodation infrastructures which has resulted in the project scaling down farm-based educational courses to small-scale short course formats and internships at present.
Thus we have moved our Permaculture Desing Course to two new venues in Noordhoek in Cape Town and Oudeberg Permaculture farm in Oudeberg run by Love Green Permaculture. Please follow this link lovegreenpermaculture.co.za to find out more about the venues and the courses being run there every year.
Currently, we will be running the following programs at Berg en Dal in 2018. Dates and details will be loaded once we have finalised preparations.
- Earth Building Course: 10-day course run by Neil Smith and Alex Kruger
- Permaculture Internship: 6-month practical internship at Love Green Permaculture Berg en Dal. This is a live in position on the farm that involves managing and developing a well-established homestead permaculture project facilitated by Kent Tahir Cooper. This program also involves either a Permaculture Design Course by mentorship or Regenerative Farming Course by mentorship depending on the skill set of the participant. Details of this program will be loaded shortly.
Please see the relevant pages for more details on the courses.
