Hands-On Practicals Series – Online Permaculture Design Course Components


While Beau is a gifted Permaculture Design Lecturer, his real talent is in the Research, Development, Design, and Construction of Permaculture Design Systems. The Permaculture Design Systems at Rak Tamachat make it one of the premier Permaculture Design Education and Research Institutes in the world.

The Rak Tamachat Online Permaculture Design Course – Practical Series is what really makes the Rak Tamachat PDC one of the best online Permaculture Courses in the world! You will get a first-person viewpoint of all the Permaculture Design in Hands-on Practicals which will guide you through the running of the Rak Tamachat Permaculture Farm.

Beau uses the Permaculture Design Systems to move the Permaculture Design Classroom outdoors. This shows you how the Permaculture Design Theories and Permaculture Design Strategies discussed in the Lecture Series are implemented on a real operating Permaculture Farm. The Rak Permaculture Design Practicals are what set the Rak Tamachat Online Permaculture Design Course apart.

Learn the power of Permaculture with Hands-on Teaching in an Experiential Learning Environment.

Module 04 – Liquid Fertilizer


Learn how to make the Correct Soil Structure by adding in Organic Fertilizers. Permaculturists know that to assure the Correct Nutrients are in the food we grow, they must be in the Soil. Learn how to use Anaerobic Composting / Fermentation to make concentrated Nutrient-Rich Organic Liquid Fertilizers.


Module 05 – Plant Propagation


Learning how to properly propagate your plants and trees opens the World of Permaculture to you and your family. In this Series, you will learn the Five Plant Propagation Techniques used by Professional Permaculturists. Learn how to: Save-Seeds, Suckering, Rhizome Separation, Air Layering, and Grafting.


Module 06 – Swales & Levels


Permaculture draws on a wide array of Skills, one of the strongest is Earthworking. When we start a Permaculture Design after assessing the Sites Access, we plan the Water Flows with Earthworks using an A-frame and Site Level. Permaculture uses Earthworks to: “Slow it Down, Spread it Out, Sink it In“.
