Summary: 

Students will learn all aspects of living and working on a permaculture farm and will learn methods and design applicable to everyday farm situations. They will be fully involved in all farm activities.

There will be no “lecture room” experiences in the Practicals, because all learning will be accompanied by practical experience (learning whilst doing), but it is probably a good idea to carry a notebook and pen around with you!

The Practicals are in blocks, a 2 week Urban Focus Block followed by a Sustainable Building week, and a 4 week Rural Focus Block, with a Water Management week in the middle. Each Practical week runs from Monday to Friday (5 day week).

Permaculture Site Design Course
October 10 & 11th
November 7 & 8th
Three Hares site design course.

Venue: Glencourse Centre, Penicuik, Midlothian
Site (15 min walk from venue): Three hares Community Woodland, Auchendinny, Midlothian.
Online application form: http://goo.gl/forms/vJ2ntdBc0E

This is a special, one off course helping to design the new 3 Hares community woodland site.

James Chapman (lead teacher)is a specialist in large, complex site design.

In the first weekend we will be looking at a variety of James’ design work including community gardens, farms and woodlands along with design techniques like model making and CAD. We will also be looking at ways to add to the long term success of the three hares project. We will be breaking a large site into smaller zones and projects.

In the second weekend you will be creating a design for one of the zones highlighted in weekend one. The areas we need to look at include a building, garden, forest garden, willow coppice, wood fuel coppice, compost toilet, access and the new C.I.C. business.

**The site is only accessible by foot and so therefore requires good mobility, due to restrictions.

Minimum requirement for this course is completion of an Introduction course and/or previous practical experience. Completion of a design for the project can count as part of your Diploma portfolio.

Please feel free to speak to us about this.
