Summary: 

Permaculture is not just growing food in a sustainable way. It is a complete design methodology in which we we learn from nature how to manage systems in order to fulfil human needs with minimal negative environmental impact. Sure, it usually starts by wanting to grow our own food but soon develops into ideas about working together to sustainably management of all our society needs; leaving the world at least as healthy and abundant as we found it.

The course is held at Garden Cottage in Britain's oldest intentional forest garden. There is nowhere better to learn about permaculture. You will be learning in a place where permaculture principles have been put into practice for over 25 years!

The course will be led by Graham Bell. There is no-one better to start your permaculture journey with. Graham has a thirty year engagement with permaculture and has been teaching the subject for twenty five years.
