This is the basic two day Introduction course. We will cover elements such as zoning, sectors, inputs and outputs analysis and how to apply the practical application of design.

We will look at examples of how permaculture design has been implemented at our off-grid, demonstration, LAND learner, project, Wishtree. Some content may briefly cover social permaculture. We will talk you through how we have used it in designing our lives and livelihood to run North Devon Permaculture CIC (Community Interest Company).

At present the site is not suitable for wheelchair users or those with physical disabilities due to the rough and wet ground. We are aiming to improve this.

Cost includes food and camping. However facilities are limited with only a compost toilet. All profits go towards helping us meet our commitments to our local community.

Facilitators

This course is facilitated by Liz and Sam.

Liz is a mother, sustainability professional, eco-retrofit project manager, gardener, and chartered civil engineer with a Diploma in Applied Permaculture Design and has been teaching introductory Permaculture courses for 6 years. She has a thriving urban permaculture garden with a mini orchard, pond, hugel beds and much more. She also has a passion for alternative forms of education for children.

Sam’s passion for permaculture design started in Kenya after he completed a Permaculture Design Certificate. Permaculture presented a new set of design tools that inspired and shifted his perspective on the amazing possibilities of what can be achieved for people and nature, through good design. This led to Sam managing Sutton Community Farm on the edges of London in 2012-16, which he helped turn into a successful community-owned business. Today, Sam works at Forum for the Future focusing on ways we can shift our food and farming systems to be radically more sustainable.

Summary: 

- Introduction to Permaculture
- Delivered by Nenya and Jenny of NonStuff Industries

Permaculture is a way of designing nature-friendly, low carbon, productive systems based on three ethics: Earth Care, People Care and Fair Share. It is an ecological, holistic design system which allows us to meet our needs for food, shelter, health and other aspects of well-being, while at the same time enhancing the natural environment.

Permaculture can be applied everywhere and at any scale – whether a farm, smallholding, community space, allotment or small urban garden. Although most closely associated with designing land-based projects and food production, you can use the same principles to design your home, business and entire life, to create more abundant, enjoyable and sustainable outcomes.

This 2-day Introduction course gives participants an overview of Permaculture, exploring its key principles, ethics and design tools. We’ll explore how Permaculture is used in designing food growing systems, but also look at how the principles can be applied in the personal and social spheres.

There’ll be a good mix of theory, discussion and design examples. The course is participant-centred, and there’s a definite element of creativity.
