Teacher’s Training (Teaching Creatively and Dynamically)

Are you a group facilitator, community presenter, teacher of any level (from pre-school to adults)? Do you love sustainable living, Permaculture and creating community?

You don’t need to be a Permaculturist or have completed your PDC to do this but you’ll live Permaculture for a full week (the best way to learn it!)

Come and join this wonderful training happening at our beautiful Sunshine Coast next November:

Come play in the Elphinstone Rainforest at Rolling Earth Farm and Retreat! A group of creative and conscious learners and teachers are gathering to share an experience with an empowering innovator in creative education from Australia.

No previous experience is necessary. We are all teachers, whether it be casual with friends or family, or formal with classes. This is for anyone who teachers or may teach, from new learners to those with a lifetime of experience. We will share in a transformational journey of experiential education in a positive and supportive environment. Come play games, walk in the rainforest, and have fun upgrading your creative teaching toolkits!

Gaiacraft is joyed to announce an awesome learning opportunity! One of the original Permaculture lineage is coming to Rolling Earth in the Elphinstone Rainforest (Robert’s Creek, BC) all the way from Crystal Waters Ecovillage in Australia!Crystal Waters was designed by Max Lindeggar, one of the founders of GEN, the Global EcoVillage Network . This will be an awesome experience and would be an opportunity to synch up with many other activated solutionaries from across North America.

Join a group of conscious people of all ages and educational levels for an inspiring boost of creativity to enhance your ability to teach any subject in a dynamic, engaging and inspirational way. In a rare visit from Australia, Permaculture Pioneer Robin Clayfield who co-wrote the foundational PC education text ‘Teaching Permaculture Creatively”, will come to share a lifetime of experience teaching in unique and creative ways. We will gather in the fabled Elphinstone Rainforest at a permaculture inspired 5 zone micro-farm site and retreat centre. From gardens to rainforest locations, we will meet and mingle with many plants, animals and people from this tiny coastal mountain village. Feasting on local organic food, and sleeping in cozy and rustic dorm style accommodations, this nourishing experience will recharge our energy for practicing and sharing world changing ideas surrounding Permaculture, community, health and environment.
