LAND seminar i Norge

LAND Norge
Gunn Marit fortæller om Porsgrunn Andelsgård på LAND seminaret

Af Maja Kristine Christensen

Den 27.- 29. Oktober 2017 blev der afholdt LAND seminar på Eidanger Prestegård i Porsgrunn, Norge. Koordinator for LAND Danmark, Cathrine Dolleris og Maja Christensen var taget til Telemark for at deltage.

Overskriften for seminaret var at diskutere kriterierne for LAND centrene i Norge og desuden at vurdere Eidanger Prestegård under LAND kategorierne. Herudover var det første gang at LAND netværket i Norge mødtes på denne måde og udvekslede erfaringer.

Under weekenden var der et blandet program af præsentationer, vurderinger, diskussioner og socialt samvær. Men først og fremmest diskuteredes og fastlagdes de forskellige kriterier, på de forskellige LAND niveauer – henholdsvis: LAND spire, LAND lærling, LAND center. Den nye kategori, LAND spire, kom til da LAND kategorien er ny i Norge, og man fandt behov for at imødekomme nytilkomne permakulturprojekters interesse i at blive en del af det større LAND netværk. Desuden kunne vi med denne kategori få flere spirende projekter med under LAND netværket og således udbrede kendskabet til permakultur yderligere i Norge. LAND spirer i Norge er eksempelvis permakulturprojektet Spiralen i Oslo.

Porsgrunn Seminar blev under seminaret i vurderet som LAND lærling og blev akkrediteret.

LANDmade

Under seminaret blev der desuden etableret et samarbejdet i LAND netværket om projektet LAND made. Projektets formål er at opelske og støtte lokale bæredygtige håndværk og skabe undervisning af disse på LAND centrene i tre nordiske lande, som sandsynligvis bliver i Danmark, Sverige, Finland. Projektet søger støtte fra Nordisk kulturfond under kategorien HANDmade og skal foregå rundt omkring på LAND centrene i Norden allerede fra 2018. Første workshop vil foregå i forbindelse med Nordisk Permakulturfestival i Hardanger i juli 2018.

The Nordic Permaculture Movement is creating cohesion and consistency through Scandinavia!

As every year since the creation of Permakultur Danmark the boards of the 3 Nordic Permaculture
associations together with many other engaged permaculturist gathered to figure out how to support each other and the permaculture movement in Scandinavia. This year the gathering took place in the beautiful eco-village Friland in Djursland.

During the Nordic Permaculture Gathering many inspiring activities took place. Participants made new useful contacts and shared their projects, many interesting Nordic permaculture collaborations are being consolidated. Here an overview of the activities:

We got the chance to share a yearly evaluation on the state of the Norwegian, Danish and Swedish permaculture associations. That process helped us all to evaluate on the different strategies we are following and see which ones works best. It is clear that to connect through local networks is key as well as to keep a solid core team to make sure that the association is running smooth.

Opening session for the Nordic Permaculture Convergence

A couple of session where focusing on the LAND network. As it is expanding and reaching to the other Nordic countries apart from Denmark. The idea was to gather the collective wisdom and to strengthen the network. All the important information and the minutes of the meetings will be uploaded soon.

We also had the honour to assist to Tyco’s and Karoline’s diploma project presentations. The process sparked heated discussions about the diploma process. This were dealt during the Nordic council meetings and many good decisions came forward.
For example: with the aim to speed up the design of the Nordic diploma, a new group has been formed, It has been called the Nordic Permaculture Secretary. It consist of one member from each of the Nordic Permaculture Associations and one Diploma holder from each country. This group will refined the agreed text and make a strategic plan to discuss during the year the major conflicting points in the text. As for example what is expected of a diploma aspirant and how should the project be presented.

One of the most fruitful session, in my opinion, was on planning fund-raising activities for the research group as many new ideas on how to get funding came forward and some participants committed to work further with developing a big collaboration strategy to apply Scandinavian and European funds.

During the Nordic Permaculture Institute meetings some people was more interested in depending on permaculture topics rather that attending the formal association decisions. So they were able to have an alternative. Anyhow the group remarked that this forum is the only time in the year where the two associations are sharing a decision taking space. Therefore it is important to give priority to that formal association gathering for knowledge and skills sharing we hold the Nordic Permaculture Festival every summer.

Among the alternatives there was a guided tour around Friland were Tove explained all the intricacies of the living community and the design of the passive constructions. They were so inspired by the beautiful natural buildings and their people.

Tyko showed the new piece of land where him and Karoline are planting chestnuts among other trees and bushes in a medium scale agroforestry system.

Niels Corfield from UK hold an inspiring session on advanced design. Looking specifically at how to tackle major challenges in your permaculture project. Some participants seem to have a break through on how to handle the permaculture projects the are creating.

The next Nordic Permaculture gathering will take place in Lund, Sweden the from the 9th till the 11th of February 2018. So write it already in your calendar!

Tillykke til to nye diplomholdere

I weekenden afholdtes Nordisk Permakultur Træf på Friland. Karoline & Tycho præsenterede deres arbejde foran 40 deltagere fra Danmark, Sverige, Norge og England og blev her tildelt deres diplomer i permakultur.

Nordisk Permakultur Træf er de nordiske foreningers møde og stedet for diplomakkrediteringer. I år præsenterede Karoline Nolsø Aaen og Tycho Holcomb deres arbejde over flere år med permakultur. Permakulturens bedstefar Tony Andersen gav, som deres vejleder, sin anerkendelse for et flot stykke praktisk arbejde med loddet på Friland 30, som rummer Tycho og Karolines hjem, skovhave og planteskole.

”Anerkendelsen af at det vi arbejder med virkelig er permakultur, er nok det vigtigste for mig,” siger Karoline. ”Anerkendelsen fra permakulturnetværket betyder, at jeg føler et stærkere fundament. Det øger selvtilliden, når jeg skal formidle, både i undervisning og ved foredrag i større cirkler. Det giver en bedre faglig selvsikkerhed til at tale om permakultur i forsamlinger på et højere niveau, når jeg ved at diplomholdere fra hele Norden har anerkendt mine kompetencer til at udtale mig på permakulturens vegne.”

Tycho supplerer Karoline: ”Vi startede med at tænke over om vi skulle tage diplom i 2011-12. Det var på samme tidspunkt vi flyttede til Friland og begyndte at bygge vores hus. Selvom vi ikke har bygget huset og lavet haven for at tage diplom, så har det alligevel fulgtes ad. Det er en cyklus der nu slutter, for vi er færdige med hus og have og er klar til at kaste os over vores nye jord og skovlandbrugsprojekt. Diplomet føles som en fin afslutning på et stort kapitel.”

Danmark har længe haft brug for flere diplomholdere til at løfte opgaven omkring blandt andet vejledning i diplom. Der er nu otte diplomholdere, men flere af dem er ikke så aktive som de har været, så Karoline og Tycho får sikkert rigeligt at gøre med nye aspiranter.

Tillykke!

 1-img_0670
Permakultur Danmark inviterer alle medlemmer af Permakultur Danmark til Nordisk Permakultur Træf 2017!
Træffet finder sted på Friland, Ravnen 4, 8410 Rønde, Danmark, og forløber fra 20. januar kl. 16 til 22 januar kl. 14.

Tilmeld dig til mødet igennem dette link: https://goo.gl/forms/raUznoGPCPTwg79d2

På træffet mødes permakulturalister fra både Danmark, Sverige og Norge, samt måske endda Finland. De sidste mange års arbejde med at udvikle det fælles nordiske diplom-system fortsættes på træffet, hvorfor det kan være meget givtigt at møde op, hvis man ønsker en dybere forståelse for indholdet i en diplomproces, hvad diplomets formål er, og hvordan udviklingen i det nordiske samarbejde har været indtil videre.
Mere info om diplomprocessen, og det nyeste beslutningsforslag som er til vedtagelse ved dette træf om denne, kan findes i dette dokument: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B2YSldrp2_vCSE5Fam1DTDByems/view?usp=sharing
