Ark Eden CAS Project

Posted by Peter MUIR

Ark Eden will be hosting a hands-on CAS opportunity at their venue in Mui Wo during September-October.  In this activity students will work on a range of developments to create a Permaculture Education Demonstration Site at Ark Eden. Permaculture is an approach to designing human settlements and agricultural systems that are modeled on the relationships found in natural ecologies.

Students will work alongside experts from several different fields including permaculturalists, ecologists, eco-designers and horticulturalists. They will become versed in sustainable principles and learn many hands-on skills that cannot be learned from books.

Students would need to commit to a number of Saturday’s in order for this to be considered a CAS Project (for years 12-13).  Students, including MYP students, may also join on a daily basis (though registration is still required).   Costs, dates and registration details can be found on this registration form – Ark Eden CAS Activity 2013
