Come and design with us!

On the 14th of August Lumia and Nick host a permaculture designCamp (link goes to Nick's diploma design) at Beyond Buckthorns, our homestead in Pirkanmaa, Finland. Together with our participants we will design an area at Beyond Buckthorns. Read about last year's designCamp at permakulttuuri.fi (in Finnish).

Besides collectively designing, we also will have a small 1 hour talkoot in the garden. And of course there will be a lot of time for chatting, discussion and exploring! Welcome, if you would like to try hands-on permaculture designing, learn more about permaculture design in general, work and hang out with others – or just help us with this wonderful permaculture project called Beyond Buckthorns 🙂

Feel free to come for the day or stay overnight. We have 4 places for tents and one tent up already for 1-2 people. Please bring your own tent & beverages and food to share with everyone for the evening bbq and breakfast if you stay overnight. For the bbq we will provide garden veggies like salad and grilled zucchinis 😃 . On Saturday, a late soup lunch and coffee throughout the day will be served to keep everyone's energy up!

The day starts at 11 am with coffee and getting to know each other, after which we’ll start with a site review and get onto business! At some point we’ll have lunch and the talkoot, and then continue with the designing. The barbeque and the sauna will be hot in the evening 🙂

Design presentation and discussion is on the next day after breakfast.

If you have questions, just ask us!
