Summary: 

Join us for this exciting opportunity to learn more about permaculture in Glasgow. Permaculture is a design system based on ethics and principles deduced from observing nature. During the course you will find out more about the permaculture ethics and principles and how they are applied in nature and in a garden, and see some other examples of their application. You will also be invited to participate in a practical activity, such as composting.

Why join this course:
*Permaculture is solutions-focussed, so you can learn something which you can then apply to your work, life, garden or projects.

*It is the first module of the full Permaculture Design Course, which is the standard 72 hour course, internationally recognised as the core introduction to permaculture.
