Summary: 

This course, the first of 3 long weekends that can lead to a PDC, led by Angie Polkey, will give you a wide ranging introduction to permaculture as an approach to designing more sustainable ways of living and working on the Earth. It will give you a good grounding in the core elements of a permaculture approach including the ethical framework or values that underpin it, the principles from nature that it draws on, and a design framework for applying them. In the course you will be encouraged to explore and consider the issues that matter to you in your life and work, as well as offered plenty of practical examples of permaculture in action in a wide range of contexts. The course also includes an inspirational site, where you can see how sustainable design works in practice, as well as a design exercise during which you will work in groups to develop a permaculture design for a designated area (e.g. piece of land or a building). You now also have the opportunity to study for the full Permaculture Design Certificate, with this being the first module in a group of 3. Feedback from a recent course: "I absolutely loved the course last weekend. I loved your style of teaching and the fun we had, yet we still managed to learn so much. Your passion for permaculture inspired me and I left buzzing and I'm still feeling very excited at learning more. I know I will look back in the future and remember your course as a turning point in the way I live my life."

Summary: 

This practical course will introduce the possibility of significant and positive life changes. Although permaculture is most commonly thought about in connection with gardening & farming, its principles, ethics and design methods can be adapted and used in each individual's own work, interests and home to bring about a more harmonious & sustainable lifestyle. Permaculture offers a perspective on all aspects of building a sustainable future. Application of design encourages us to use our individual skills, knowledge and interests, whilst drawing on traditional wisdom, science and our innate ability to observe and learn from the world around us.

This introductory course doubles as the start of a longer, full permaculture design course (PDC) that runs on 1 weekend a month up to July and participants of the introductory weekend will have an opportunity to continue onto the full PDC if they wish.
