DirectRooms.com – Courses in Siem Reap teach locals about new permaculture techniques
DirectRooms highlights that Siem Reap will be the centre for a series of classes that will explain to teachers the new processes being used in permaculture.
A permaculture approach aims to develop methods that people can use to live with the land and nature in a sustainable way, without the need for constant human intervention. The Intermediate Permaculture Course is specifically targeted at teachers from Siem Reap’s Teacher’s College to identify practices that can then be taught in the classroom.
Subject matter covered by the course will look at methods such as soil management including making compost and the recycling of water as well as the creation of sustainable farming systems. The classes will offer teachers the chance to give feedback on the content which will then be reviewed and go towards creating a permaculture curriculum to be used within schools. The course will run from 4th to 8th January 2011.
The program is being organised by the Singing Tree Community Center which has also designed a course specifically for local farmers that people staying in a Siem Reap hotel (http://directrooms.com/asia-cambodia/hotels/siem-reap-hotels/price1.htm) may like to attend. Trainings will present strategies on setting up organic farms with organic ways to combat pests and intercropping techniques which look at the best use of locally produced plants.
Lek Boonlert, marketing head at DirectRooms commented: “Demand for the courses is always strong with many getting sold out as people look to help out within the community. Hotels in Siem Reap will also be booking up as people attend the program so making reservations is advised for people heading to the city.”
