The main aim of the curriculums that I help participants to explore through courses and workshops is to bridge the gap between theory and practice of Permaculture, mainly design. The courses/workshops are aimed towards introducing a whole-systems approach to design regenerative landscapes and the curriculum is so planned that, anyone, irrespective of occupation, age and background will benefit from exploring these.
The curriculum for the workshops is in the form of either a series of one/two day workshops or a series of short courses.
The curriculum for the PDC is the internationally recognised 72-hour PDC curriculum as recommended by Bill Mollison, the founder of Permaculture. This is strengthened by more sessions and activities.
The online support around the workshops/courses includes reference material for the participants to explore in the comfort zone of their personal spaces.
I am working with resource people to also include trainings for necessary relevant skills like nursery management, working with bamboo, irrigation, water management, grafting and pruning of plants and the like, in the times to come.
If you are exploring permaculture or would like to know more about courses and workshops, simply drop in a line…
WHAT STUDENTS SAY
A very humble bubbly teacher , Mrs. Jyoti Deshpande, absolutely breaks your worldly view towards nature and brings you into reality and the birth pains that nature deals when clashing with humans. Her depth of knowledge I think is a gift from God, and the best part is that she shares this gift with the others in the most simplest, yet a way , that stays with us forever. It has made me see the reality of nature,in depth, where she has helped me in connecting not just my eyes or thoughts,but also the heart towards nature. My just 2 days experience with her has made it easier to walk towards our dream. And this is really going to get the best out of us . When the view towards nature changes, it will remain with you forever. Thank you so much mam.
Two days awesome.
God bless you for your Love towards what God has made.
Jyoti mam, you have just given me ‘ wealth’, which will always remain with me. Had a very comfortable learning with the liberty to be ourselves. Space for exploring with guidance. Every doubt was cleared with no hesitation, clear explanation. One can totally start working in the mind as you teach. Looking forward for more.
Food for thought( for others )-Practice permaculture and it will make one realise , what kind of humans we really are and what we ought to do.

If you think you can contribute/collaborate with me for the above in any way, if you have special skills that you think you could teach and could be useful to participants of such courses, or you hold courses and workshops for such skills and would like to collaborate, you are most welcome to drop in a note with details and I will be happy to work on it and include it in the curriculum, if it fits in. Even if you have any ideas, please write an email and I will be glad to have suggestions.
