Education & Consulting

Permaculture is an ethical design system. It is not to be confused with one trending idea or another. At Lillklobb Permaculture, I intend to offer education and consulting services that ground you in the best theory possible and let you engage with working examples. I believe that it is only when you can do both that the holistic design process will make sense. Ultimately, you are the one implementing, managing, and guiding your life. My job is to build your confidence along the way.

I’ll be here at Lillklobb, in the heart of Espoo, putting together systems you can learn to trust.

Education: workshops & courses

After basic infrastructure has been implemented in the fall of 2016, a full curriculum of courses for 2017 will be completed. Next year will see two semesters of educational opportunities offered at Lillklobb.

  • Winter 2017

Winter’s offerings will begin in January 2017 and focus on the theoretical underpinnings of permaculture design and agroecology at large. Courses will range from the traditional, two day “Introduction to Permaculture” to in depth discussions around site design.

  • Spring-Fall 2017

As the growing season begins, courses will switch to practical workshops on implementing lessons from the winter in order to give the hands on experience many find necessary to reinforce confidence in the theory.

Lillklobb As a Venue

Are you a permaculture professional or sustainability expert looking for a venue? Lillklobb will be developed as a venue for a wide range of topics that we cannot hope to meet all by ourselves. If you would like to arrange a workshop or short course, reach out and start the conversation.

Permaculture Design Course

  • The first full 72-hour Permaculture Design Course (PDC) will be scheduled only after we decide that our venue meets our exacting standards in both curriculum content and demonstrability of permaculture design in action.
  • Stay tuned for a new pathway towards PDC attainment which, pending approval, will be available as early as next year.

Consulting: personalized design and education services

If you have a project or are thinking of starting one and would like a second opinion – or a guiding hand- we are here to help. Our consulting strategy is predicated on ensuring our clients’ understanding of the whole system. Our permaculture designs are tailored to your circumstances, not the other way around: the design and management will be realistic or it won’t be presented.

The following two links are intended to give you an impression of the kind of attention to detail one can expect during the design process:

2. 2011 Nottinghill Forest Garden Commencement

Lillklobb Permaculture also offers second opinions and peer review of permaculture designs.
