Summary: 

What the course will be like

We work to create a supportive and collaborative space where we can discuss important issues and learn in a playful and effective way.

We provide well prepared sessions based on good evidence and our own experience of using permaculture in our homes, gardens and community projects. The course is lively, participatory and thought provoking. There is a mix of group work, individual reflection, videos, slide shows, practical active sessions and great food!

We will cover

* Ethics & principles
* Design tools & processes
* Examples of permaculture
* An observation exercise, practical exercise or walk
* An overview of the permaculture network and how to find out more.

What we will learn together

Through the exercises and examples you will see how we can rethink our homes, communities and lives to be more productive, less polluting and more life-affirming. By the end of the two days you will be able to explain permaculture to other people and have some tools to take away and use. For some people, the intro course is enough to start a lifetime journey of discovery and action!

What to bring

* Food to share. Please label the food and try to avoid lots of packaging.
* Project information. If you are working on a project, then bring along any photos, maps or drawings that will help others to understand it.
* Practical clothes for outdoors.
* Notebook, pens, books or magazines to share.

Summary: 

A 2 Day Practical Sustainability Skills Workshop, including how to apply Permaculture design to live well on a small piece of land and little money.

For the first time, Steve Golemboski Byrne from Lackan Cottage Farm, and Claire Templar from Tir na nOg in County Mayo are hosting a two-day weekend workshop to learn and experience first-hand how the principles of Permaculture design can support the development of a low-impact land-based project.

The fully immersive weekend will include:

Exploring the setup of a project, including essential knowledge and resilience for our 4 most basic needs: water, shelter, power and food.
The practical side of how things work, and the essential art and skill of developing a project on a small budget by using the resources around us, improvising and *diy*ing.
Topics covered will include rainwater harvesting and waste water management, introduction to natural building and earth plastering, introduction to sustainable energy production, and perennial food systems and no-dig gardening and feature the creative upcycling and recycling of materials…. And of course compost!
Introduction to Permaculture – the ethics, principles, design tools and processes, and key concepts which will support you to ‘permaculture’ your site or project and design your way to ecological abundance.
Cost:

The course costs £100 for 2 days which includes an abundance of hot drinks and snacks and a hot lunch on both days, using fresh ingredients from the garden.

Also included are course notes, and camping/parking space for anyone who wishes to stay over. (There are also other accommodation options – Birch Cottage and our Off Grid Horse Box)
