The 3 Week Permaculture Course takes place in Nepal’s awe-inspiring Royal Beach Camp that hosts a variety of entertaining activities like rafting, kayaking and canyoneering.

You’ll also get an engaging opportunity to work on a Tree Plantation to learn about Sustainability while helping both the local ecosystem and compensating for your air travel and transportation in Nepal!

The Second Week gets down and dirty with farming, restoration work, and developing your final project for presentation to the group at the end of the course. You’ll visit with the local farmers who grow organically, learning and sharing knowledge with others and truly experiencing the Nepalese Way of Life along the slopes of breathtaking Mountain Ranges!

As you prepare your final project during Week 3 of the Permaculture Course, you’ll be diving further into your farming and restoration work.

The daily schedule typically includes morning yoga and stretching to prepare your body for the hard work during the days, plenty of time to work on your project, enjoy team activities, group meetings to prepare or debrief, along with time to relax and talk about the experiences of the day as a group.

Day 19 of the Permaculture Course is Presentation Day followed a by a celebratory BBQ on the Beach with your group! The next day, enjoy a shopping trip to Kathmandu and personal time for sightseeing before departing the next day.

The Permaculture Course is stocked with activities that will educate you and help you grow as a person as you learn to grow crops in challenging climates! Challenge yourself and step out of your comfort zone to become an expert farmer with a life-changing experience under your belt!
