Self-sufficiency is the art of surviving with minimal outside aid and involves a lot more than just growing your own vegetables. Our self-sufficiency courses cover all aspects including lifestyle choices and utilising the resources you have available, animal husbandry, horticulture – including fruit, vegetables and herbs, food production, building and alternative energy options.
Permaculture is a practical and philosophical framework to approaching long-term agricultural self-sufficiency which dovetails beautifully with self-sufficiency. Upon satisfactory completion of the course and exam, students are awarded both a Careerline courses Certificate in Permaculture and an additional Permaculture Design Certificate.
Other courses which complement the online self-sufficiency courses are aquaculture, aquaponics and poultry. Depending on your needs and location, you will find many more options in Careerline courses Agriculture and Horticulture sections
