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.
Permaculture Scotland Gathering 2014
We are delighted to announce that the next Permaculture Scotland Gathering will take place at one of our new ScotLAND Centres – Urban Roots, in the South-East of Glasgow – on June 7th from 10am to midnight.
With workshops, kids activities, general meeting, networking, a pot luck lunch, meeting old friends and new, and a delicious local, organic evening meal put on by Urban Roots, it's going to be a great day! After some delicious Cairn o Mohr wine you'll be wanting a dance or a song, so our illustrious permaculture ceilidh band will delight your ears and your dancing shoes, and you can even take a turn on the stage too.
All the info is at www.permaculture.org.uk/scotland/gathering14
We are delighted to announce our first 5 ScotLAND Centres - Urban Roots in Glasgow, Garden Cottage in Berwickshire, Park Road in Midlothian, Kintyre Bioregion in Argyll and Tombreck nr Aberfeldy.
Congratulations also to our new ScotLAND Learners - Skye Permaculture, Tap O Noth Permaculture, Coig Cottage Garden, West Braes, Ardenbrae, Gartmorn Sunken Garden, and Campbeltown Loch Permaculture.
Information about each of these will be available soon on this website.
In 2012 the Permaculture Scotland Working Group successfully applied to Awards for All for £10,000 to initiate this exemplar 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 receive 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 to support new Learners and will post more news when we know it. If you would like to join the network, please get in touch here www.permaculture.org.uk/contact (for category please select Permaculture Scotland)
To keep in touch, offer help or for information email us via the Contact form on this website.
