Practical Permaculture - a weekend for beginners

Summary information
field_summary: 

Held at the idylic setting of Dial House in west Essex, this residential weekend workshop can either be considered as a 'stand alone' introduction to Permaculture ethics, principles and design, or else can be a lead-in to the more in depth full 72 hour Permaculture Design Course.

The 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 September 2010 to 26 September 2010
Teachers
Graham Burnett and Ron Bates
