Permaculture Courses:

a great example of apermaculture garden

We have held 4 very successful Permaculture weekend workshops run by John Nzira. John was born in Zimbabwe and currently lives and works in South Africa. He is an African Permaculture legend and has been teaching and establishing farms, orchards and gardens for twenty years. A former coordinator of the Fambidzanai Permaculture Training Centre and program manager for Food and Trees for Africa, he is currently the director for the Ukuvuna Permaculture Consultancy. John is a recipient of the DEAT award for conservation and the Silver Gilt medal 2006 Chelsea Flower Show UK Royal Horticultural Society presented by HRH Queen Elizabeth. His aim is the development of practical skills in permaculture food gardens, nutrition, medicinal food and landscaping with indigenous plants. In 2011 John received 2 awards from the Dept of Agriculture and Rural Development (GDARD) – one for water conservation and management and the other for being an Ambassador for Community Projects
