Learn how to incorporate animals into the design of your garden or food production system to increase its overall abundance, simplify management and optimise the health and productivity of your chickens, cows and other animals. This workshop includes a field trip exploring local animal production systems where we can experience successful integrative animal systems that can be implemented at various scales from the backyard to commercial.

Topics covered include:

Integration not Segregation
Role and Importance of Animals in Permaculture
Overview of Common domestic animals and wildlife
Choosing Breeds
Reviving and preserving heritage utility breeds
Animal Welfare and Care

This course module is one of 14 which make up the internationally renowned Permaculture Design Course (PDC).

You are welcome to attend just this module to learn the skills outlined above (without doing the other modules), but if you wish to gain the Permaculture Design Certificate you must complete all modules within a 12 mth timeframe and satisfactorily complete an Individual Permaculture Design Project.
