  1. 1. Josh Gomez & Rosie Stonehill Skills Resume Co-Created by Josh Gomez & Rosie Stonehill
  2. 2. Permaculture Design WorkWe have been studying Permaculture for the last 5years after attending an introductory course inCornwall. Then in April 2009 we jointly organisedand attended the Permaculture Design Course atMount Of Oaks in Portugal with Lesley Martin.Ever since then we have been practicingPermaculture design on many different projects inPortugal and the UK.The following is one example of our designpresentations..... If you would like to see moreexamples of our designs feel free to ask.

  17. 17. Design Summary Process Review Examples of Ethics & Principles applied in DesignEarth Care: Increased diversity of habitat.Returning nutrients to the earth in compost.People Care: Inclusive and empowering forpeople of all abilities. Everything Gardens: Flowers borderingpaths encourage pollinating insects and pestpredators.The Yield is Only Limited by theImagination: Edible lawn provides a valuableyield instead of unproductive green desert.Optimized use of Edge and Natural Pattern:Herb Spiral. Keyhole Mandala Beds.Undulating Edged Pond.Each Element Serves Multiple Functions:Keyhole Mandala/Food Forest/Pond systemplaced to create mutually beneficialrelationships. Each element both receives andgives something to the other elementscreating a collectively stronger environment.Relative Location/System Thinking:Compost boxes close to kitchen for organicwaste. Also close to the table top gardens KEYenabling easy access to potting compost for Ethicsusers. Sited to be easily accessed by tractor orwheelbarrow for moving bulk amounts of Basic Principlesmaterial. Design Principles
  18. 18. Permaculture Teaching ExperienceIn December 2009 we started the PermacultureDiploma specifically with the intention ofbecomming accredited Permaculture teachers.We will be giving a public presentation of ourwork over the last two years at ouraccreditation event on September 7th 2011 atQuinta Cabeca do Mato, Tabua, Portugal.After this accreditation we will be qualified andfurther preparing ourselves to teach andcertificate our own Permaculture DesignCourses. As part of our diploma work we have developed a Permaculture Design Course syllabus program. We have also had many opportunities of teaching alongside other Permaculture teachers enabling us to find confidence and our own style of teaching together as a team. Subsequently we are prepared for, and enthusiastic about, enabling others to create abundantly sustainable Permaculture systems for themselves and their local communities, helping to supply the needs of people for many generations to come.
  19. 19. Permaculture Teaching ExperienceWe have developed our teaching so that it isaccessible and enjoyable for all ages especiallyconsidering that children are the future of ourworld to come and the education of thoseindividuals is of the highest importance and hasthe greatest possibility for positive change.The way we teach the course is 50% practical withhands on experience, games and group work and50% classroom lessons. Where technology isavailable we have prepared digitally projectedlessons, we can also teach both on black or whiteboard and we are considering using A3 flip chartsof our lessons as another teaching tool. We have included one of our lessons for you to see. In a normal lesson situation we will give much more detail as we are explaining, discussing and answering questions. Here is the basic structure of what would be seen by the students....
