Course Leaders: Angela Malmgren and Lobke Beks
ReGeneration Permaculture is proud to offer a pioneer permaculture program specifically designed for children. These programs are offered in collaboration with the permaculture farm Auenhof bei Feldbach.
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.
During the spring and summer of 2021, we began building up a permaculture garden there, specifically designed for children. This garden is an experiential space for children to learn about permaculture, gardening, food production, collaboration and cooperation.
During our day camps, the children will have the opportunity to interact with and observe the ducks, chickens and goats on the farm, to harvest produce and to take part in cooking fresh food from the garden, as well as learning about permaculture and sustainable living. Each camp week has a particular focus, and the children have the opportunity to learn about and build up various elements of the children's permaculture garden.
Beginning in the summer of 2022, we will be offering an overnight camp for children ages 9-12 together with support from WWF. This camp gives the children a deeper experience not only in the gardening aspects of permaculture, but also offers great opportinuties for community collaboration. The hayloft at the farm provides a secure and dry space for sleeping.
The course leaders Angela Malmgren and Lobke Beks are experienced pedagogues with additional training in permaculture design. Our goal is to offer a program that is based on the principles of permaculture, and allows the children to learn about the practical aspects of permaculture in a hands-on way.
