*Update, After talking to many colleagues at the International Permaculture Convergence we have moved this to 1 – 14 May 2016 to allow more time to prepare and promote the course.

We are very keen to hear from anyone interested in this course, we see a great potential to contribute to grass-roots development in Eastern Uganda while creating a fantastic learning environment for all concerned.

After a very successful fact finding mission to Eastern Uganda in 2014 we are keen to put together a PDC to run there, one that is designed for both local Ugandans as well as international participants.

The course might serve as a fantastic general introduction to working in East Africa, whilst meeting all sorts of people and projects with experience in crop diversification, reafforestation, income development, and much more.

This course is developed in close association with Dolen Ffermo a Wales/ Uganda farmers link. This charity was launched by colleagues of ours who are also local residents in Mid Wales, over 20 years ago.. Over that time a considerable network of project links has been developed.

  • Price for International Participants: £450 + return flight (c£350)
  • Price for East African participants: US$120.00
  • Ideal for individuals wanting to gain direct experience of project work in an Africa context and to work with an experienced team from the region

The first day of this course is 1 May 2016. We will meet in Jinja  a few das earlier before travelling to Kamuli where we will be based for the duration of the course.

      Hi Maria, I have changed the dates to April 2016, and will confirm these asap… we are sorry to have had to change it but we were perhaps over optimistic in the time scale, but will definitely go ahead in April, I will publish a booking form for this in the coming 10 days

    What language would the class be taught in, I’m hoping to help some participants attend from the DRC. They speak several languages including French and Kiswahili but not English.

    Thank you!

      Thanks for your interest Jeremiah, we will be teaching in English and are seeking a Kiswahili translator to work with u son the course. I have some French as well, but not good enough to teach in. The new dates for April will now be fixed, I have to confirm the exact days but I am hopeful we wont have to change them again.
