- Explain, using labelled illustrations, the use of different survey equipment, including:

*a dumpy level for determining slopes; *a tape measure for triangulating a point;

*a spirit level, line and tape for determining a slope.

- Survey a site, between one and four thousand square metre in size, that has been selected for a proposed Permaculture system, recording details, including: *topography *dimensions *location of features.

- Prepare a site plan, to scale, of the site surveyed, including contour lines and the location of all  existing features.

- Distinguish between, using labelled drawings, different types of earthworks, including: *banks   *benching  *terracing *mounds.

- Explain the factors that affect the excavation of earth for a specified Permaculture system, such as:

*soil type *sub-soil  *rock  *site access *vegetation *in-ground services.

- Compare two different methods for moving earth for a specific Permaculture development.

- Compare different methods for the provision of drainage on a site proposed as, or being developed

as, a Permaculture system.

- Explain the different reasons for moving earth in two specified Permaculture designs.

- Determine the earthworks required for a proposed Permaculture system, including:

*quantity of earth to move *where to relocate earth to *method of moving the earth.

- Analyse two different, specified Permaculture designs for temperate to cold climates.

- Determine fifty plant species suitable for inclusion in a Permaculture system in temperate to cold areas.

- Determine ten animal species suitable for inclusion in a Permaculture system in temperate to cold areas.

- Prepare a Permaculture design for a temperate to cold climate, including:

*a plan *materials list  *plant and animal varieties lists.

- Determine the types of materials required for specific Permaculture plans supplied to you.

- Calculate the quantities of materials, showing necessary calculations, required in a specified permaculture plan.

- Estimate the work-hours required, showing any necessary calculations, to complete each section of work.

- Estimate the equipment required, showing any necessary calculations, to complete each section of work.

- Analyse two different, new Permaculture systems, to determine specific tasks which may need to undertaken over a period of years, until the system reaches maturity.

"Complete this course after Permaculture Systems and you are ready to create a design for a range of situations - as a consultant to others or for your own property." - Adriana Fraser Cert.Hort., Cert.Child Care., Adv.Cert.App.Mgt., Cert 1V Assessment and Training., Adv.Dip.Hort. SCI Tutor

For people with prior experience in permaculture, this course develops more advanced skills in permaculture. This course is an ideal follow on from Permaculture Systems, or a Permaculture Design Certificate undertaken through a different institution.
