About the project

Permaculture is an ecological design system that consists of ethics and principles that can be applied in aspects of life from land and food production, to economics, health and education. From the point of view of Boodaville, as well as many organizations in the field of human development, the tools offered by permaculture can function as a solution to environmental, social and work problems in communities.
The key to this idea, and what we want to convey in this training, is the good design based on knowledge of permaculture and in the context of a training for youth workers we also want to share skills so that participants can transmit these ideas and facilitate the integration of permaculture in the lives and projects of young people. We have been recommended by the National Injuve Agency, that the course should be 7 days. That is why in the design of this course we have focused on only three main ideas permacultural design, non-formal education strategies and group cohesion and in the course syllabus there is no deepening of other key topics of permaculture such as plants, energy and much more. The objectives of this course are to transmit skills to make successful and ecological projects, to teach effectively and to lead groups. We will also touch on the issues edible forests and water to open the door and promote an interest in permaculture.

We are very open to the idea that all the sessions, ideas, activities and resources that we use during the course of the course can be replicated by any participant to use with their groups. Until the end of the project in July the participants are welcome to contact us for advice or reminders of the activities.

About the venue

Boodaville is a developing rural permaculture centre in Spain. Visitors learn about effective & sustainable design techniques. The terraces make perfect flat camping areas, with olive trees for shade. We will set up your tents for you and some people can sleep in the tippee – but you need to bring a good sleeping bag, and a torch light. We have enough mattresses to provide them for most participants but the quality and comfort ranges from a thick mattress, to a thin yoga mat.

In Barcelona you will be at Enriquez Arte. The space has 2 large communal areas, a kitchen, dining area and an outdoor patio with a developing garden, dorm rooms, one bathroom with shower and plenty of hot water. It is located just two minutes from Vilapicina metro station on the Blue line. There are local shops very nearby.

Financial matters:
Local board and lodging are fully covered. Travel (flights, other means of transport) expenses are compensated (up to 100%), based on the actual expenses incurred and the distance from your location of residence to the location of the project (Barcelona, Spain). In case of Hungary the available sum is €275/participant*. You will be reimbursed with 100% of your travel costs up to 275 euro*.
