Course Leaders: Angela Malmgren and Lobke Beks
This group will be learning about permaculture in a hands-on way. We are building up a children's permaculture garden on a working permaculture farm in the Züri Oberland!
The Auenhof bei Feldbach, located in the beautiful Züri Oberland, is a learning and demonstration farm where permaculture workshops and trainings are held throughout the year.
In these sessions, the children will learn about topics such as permaculture design principles, companion planting, composting and vegetable gardening.
With the guidance of the course leader, the children will be physically building up the garden beds, paths and permaculture elements in the children's garden. Of course, there will also be quiet time for reflection, for socialization and for enjoying the farm environment.
The course leader, Angela Malmgren, is an educator with over 20 years of experience working with children. She holds internationally recognized diplomas in Montessori education for children ages 6-18, in permaculture design, and for children in permaculture.
