Training Courses

Ghana Permaculture Institute

Training Courses

We have two(2) project sites at which we offer training: the small demonstration farm site where we have accommodation and classrooms and the main Ghana Permaculture Institute site, which is still in development but is already a large model permaculture farm and demonstration site where we have a range of local accommodation options. Alternatively we can arrange accommodation in hotels in Techiman.A lot of the training we do takes place in the field with the farmers and communities that we work with and support. It is participatory, hands-on, and aimed at getting real results on the ground.There is a saying that  ”practice without theory is blind, but theory without practice is irrelevant”. We have a good knowledge of the theory but our day-to-day work is to put that into practice, so our classroom is the world.

We currently offer training in 4 main areas:

  • 1: Training on how to make moringa products.
  • 2: Training on mushroom production.
  • 3: A full Permaculture Design Course (PDC).
  • 4: Internship program.
