On the course you will be equipped with practical techniques and strategies to apply permaculture design in your home, garden, work place and local community. With the price of oil and food escalating this design methodology will be invaluable in the future of energy conservation.
Over the two days we demonstrate how to apply permaculture ethics and principles to your design projects. We cover: the input and outputs of your home and garden, observational design, sustainable food growing, we will have two group practicals and watch two permaculture related DVDs.

We visit two permaculture projects in York: The Stables edible garden and The Lolliplot, a communal garden for children with hearing loss. There will be plenty of time for discussion and questions.
