Since the beginning of 2010 there has been an evolving team of people successfully working on furthering Permaculture in Scotland following this mission statement:
“To support the beneficial transformation and development of environments, communities and individuals towards a resilient and sustainable Scotland.”
This work is ongoing and we appreciate all the help and support from individuals, projects, funders, the Permaculture Association and anyone reading this. Thank you.
We are delighted to announce our first 4 ScotLAND Centres - Urban Roots in Glasgow, Garden Cottage in Coldstream, Park Road in Midlothian and Kintyre Bioregion in Argyll. In 2012 the Permaculture Scotland Working Group successfully applied to Awards for All for £10,000 to initiate this examplar permaculture network in Scotland.
This fund has enabled us to train experienced permaculture designers in site assessment, work out application forms, guidebooks and other systems for Scottish projects to apply to become Learners and Centres, held some great events, and we have received 14 applications to join the network.
We are still looking for a representative from Scotland to join the LAND Advisory Group, more details here - http://www.permaculture.org.uk/scotland/land
The group are now working on further funding applications and will post more news when we know it.
Permaculture Scotland Convergence: A Festival in the Year of Natural Scotland: June 14th-16th: Comrie Croft, Perthshire.
This was a fantastic event attended by a record 193 people – the biggest permaculture gathering in Scotland. Read a wonderful review of this event.
