Sue Rae, New York

The PDC at Daruma was as thorough academically as I had hoped for and more, with plenty of opportunities to explore the practical application of much of what I was learning.  It is a fascinating place to come and learn about permaculture, both from a hands-on practical, and academic / theoretical point of view…Read more...

Daruma

DARUMA ECOFARM IS A PERMACULTURE DESIGNED EDUCATIONAL ECOVILLAGE THAT HAS EXISTED FOR OVER 10 YEARS.

On-Site At Daruma Ecofarm

Take a video tour of Daruma, shot in 2015 by Jem Moore, award-winning director, musician, author, jet pilot, and all around Baroque kinda guy.

Things have developed considerably in the years after this shoot, and continue to do so.  The video still gives a good representation of some of the facilities, grounds and activities such as permaculture courses that take place at Daruma.

We are not a commercial farm meaning, Daruma is not purposefully engaged in the production of food products for sale. Rather, the central purpose of the farm is too provide an ecologically integrated, life-long learning environment. The production of farm products is therefore for pleasure, recreation, health, and learning. We do produce some organic fruits and vegetables as well as animal products and these are eaten by our family, staff, volunteers and students.

Above this, surplus can then be shared with friends and neighbors or sold. Daruma farm is not a ‘self-sufficiency’ farm but rather a way to practice self-reliance. We enjoy our relationship in the community as consumers and this also builds community resilience. We enjoy being involved in our local market as consumers and especially, Daruma and Mosaic volunteers enjoy the atmosphere of the nearby evening market.  You can find out more about Daruma here

Library

The privately curated library at Daruma Ecovillage is stocked with over 800 books either with ‘Permaculture‘ actually in the title, or books that are directly related to the topics covered in our Permaculture Design Certificate (PDC) Courses and Natural Building Courses.

You can see a selected listing of the books by following the above link to the Library page, and on the Library page itself, we have provided you a link to the ‘Library Thing’ website, which we use to catalogue our books.  That can be searched, filtered and ordered if you would like to check if we have a specific title before your visit.

Although our time is very much occupied during a Permaculture Design Course at Daruma, we do try to pack in as much as possible. A thorough review of the literature, is one of the things that is of course well outside the scope of a PDC. We do, however, have a physical Library on-site with over 1,000 books covering all the many fields that you could think of within any of the Permaculture Domains of Action.

So, an ‘optional activity’ is for Students to carry out a brief review of a book that informs or underpins permaculture thinking.  This can be a book a student chooses individually, or that has been suggested to them by the Daruma team.  You can see these permaculture book reviews here.

Volunteering, Internships, Apprenticeships

It seems incredible, but since 2007, we have hosted over 800 PDC Students, WWOOF Volunteers and Interns from more than 36 countries. Even as the project expands educational offerings that fund our operational expenses, in consideration of the generosity and spirit of the volunteers that have given time and energy to help build our farm, we strive to continue to offer excellent volunteer opportunities as a part of the Daruma initiative towards life-long education in sustainability.
