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)

21 September 2019 to 22 September 2019

A joint meeting of Schumacher College with the College for Real Farming and Food Culture. If we are to achieve the goal of ensuring everyone in the world can live well and in harmony we must re-think everything from first principles. Join us to re-assess all the big ideas we take for granted. We will be rethinking everything from the practicalities of cooking and farming, to the buildings in which we live, medicine, education, the mechanisms and ideologies of politics and economies and even the underlying notions of science and moral philosophy.

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 opportunity 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.

The tutor will be Bob Mehew one of our directors at The Apricot Centre. Bob is a project manager and has project managed the development of the new Huxhams Cross farm, he is an expert at using permaculture design for projects and business development.

Dates: 
6 July 2019 to 7 July 2019

We are a 34 acre farm that has been designed using permaculture methodologies. We are certified organic and biodynamic. We also run a wellbeing service on our site.
