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.
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)
