This course can be used as module one of the full Online Permaculture Design Course.
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.
