Carraig Dúlra PDCers Meitheal and Reunion weekend

September 11, 2021

Meitheal is a Gaelic word for a group of people who come together to do something and was used to describe collaborative activities in rural Ireland- such as harvesting or building.

This event focuses on harvesting and building the network of past permaculture design certificate participants at Carraig Dúlra, over a weekend of work and play, shared meals and fireside conversations.

It is hoped that the event will help create more meitheal’s, and more collaborative groups that cross-fertilize across the different year groups who already  support each other’s projects which all focus on community level regenerative practices.

About Carraig Dúlra’s permaculture design certificate course

Co-evolved by a female design team (and gender balanced tutor team) people care – inclusive and specifically welcoming to all, fair shares – sliding scale fees, grants, and other options, and transformative learning – with a Global citizenship approach are core to the PDC.  It has been developing at Carraig Dúlra in spring or summer without fail for nearly 10 years.

With a lot of luck and some blended online components and reduced group sizes we managed to continue to have courses in 2020 and 2021 despite the pandemic. At the beginning, the permaculture courses often had more than 50% of participants coming from overseas. In  recent years, permaculture is becoming better known in Ireland and there have been increasing numbers of participants based on the island of Ireland. During the pandemic we had no participants from outside of Ireland although the diversity of nationalities on the course reflect Ireland new demographics.
