Humanity is going through challenging times. Faced with so much uncertainty, a change of ways and a Permaculture way of thinking seems necessary. Despite not currently being able to meet in person, I feel it is important to keep sharing this work and hope it can be done by offering this online course.

On this online introduction to Permaculture course you’ll be taking a few steps into a positive future. Permaculture shows us how we humans can find our healthy place in nature and shift from separation, scarcity and disease to an ecology of wellbeing.

On this face-to-face live online course you’ll be in a virtual classroom, where you’re able to engage with others, contribute and ask questions. We’ll be covering the basics of Permaculture Design and by the end of the course, you will be ready to try it out in your garden, your workplace and your life.

"I found the Permaculture Principles we learned all relevant to my life. If I never touch a plant again, my life will still have been changed by this experience."
- Daniel, permaculture intro course participant

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.
