Summary information
Summary: 

The weekend is led by experienced permaculture teachers Graham Burnett (author and illustrator of 'Permaculture- a Beginners Guide' and holder of the Diploma in Permaculture Design), and Ron Bates, who has a extensive background in experiential learning and teaching, in particular working with young people with special needs.

This course has been put together in response to requests and feedback for a weekend workshop that has a greater emphasis on practical skills and projects, and will have a greater focus on 'kinesthetic' learning and practice. We will therefore work on a 'hands-on' group project that will teach and embed the principles and ethics of permaculture design.

Dates: 
24 June 2011 to 26 June 2011
