Summary: 

An excellent way to find out more about permaculture is to attend our two-day introductory course. This 'taster' will provide an opportunity to actively learn about the principles and see examples of designs being implemented by projects. Our weekend course offers an introduction to the ethics, principles and design tools of permaculture. Come along and learn what Permaculture is and what it can do for your and your current lifestyle. This course is suitable for you if you have a smallholding, small garden, allotment and even if you are don‘t grow food. Its a great opportinuty to meet and connect with like-minded people.

The course provides the opportunity to discuss vitally important issues in a positive, creative and supportive space. The course is lively, participatory and thought provoking.

The sessions include:

Ethics and principles

Design

Examples of permaculture

An observation exercise

A practical exercise or walk

An overview of the permaculture network and how to find out more.

Our introductory course doesn't cover all the topics in great detail - it is a taster and overview. If you already know you want to find out about permaculture in more depth, it may be better to go straight on to a full permaculture design course, we offer discounts for those participants who go on to do the full design course after the introduction course. Some people however have found that attending an introduction to permaculture course was enough - with the enthusiasm generated by the course, plus books and their own knowledge, people have gone on to create some incredible projects after attending the weekend course.

Hot drinks and biscuits will be provided. This course is not residential. It will run from 9am to 4pm each day.

Summary: 

Permaculture is a natural design science mimicking the patterns of nature. It can be used to help build regenerative and resilient landscapes and communities. It is a solutions based, systems thinking, design process which can help you to adapt to and build resilience for changes in the natural and social ecosystems.

This course will give you an holistic overview of the basic theory and practical application of how permaculture can be used in what you do. We emphasise the importance of the ethics and prime directive, the key underpinning to permaculture.

We will show you how to use permaculture design in your garden as a pretext to how you can use social permaculture and build your own toolkit to build personal resilience. The content will include references to Chris Johnstone's work on building emotional resilience and guidance from 'Active Hope' by Joanna Macy and Chris Johnstone. We will also look at how we can use permaculture design to build community resilience.

Some content will include discussing the COVID-19 crisis and how it can be used to learn about resilience and pattern recognition.

Examples of areas we will cover are:

What permaculture is
The ethics of permaculture
Zones and sectors
Pattern recognition
How you can use permaculture in your everyday life
The practical application of permaculture design

The sessions run for 2 hours a week for 9 weeks. For more details please contact us.
