Summary: 

We are excited to announce a PDC with room for 24 participants in the beautiful archipelago of Orkney led by Graham Bell. A unique location, with a fascnating and often underappreciated place in Britain's cultural and historical heritage, Orkney provides the backdrop for this opportunity supported by Pebble Trust, via Permaculture Scotland's ScotLAND Project, and hosted by Stromness Community Garden. This will hopefully be the first such course of many to target social, economic and ecological regeneration in the Highlands and Islands of Scotland.

The price of this course is on a sliding scale. The full rate, including 12 days of tuition, lunches, trips out and evening events is:

  • £300, for unwaged or irregular earners
  • £450, for regular earners on a low household income
  • £700, for those who are financially secure
  • £950, for those who are financially comfortable

Payment by instalments will be possible, as long as the full amount is paid within a month of the course ending. The most expensive ticket is essentially a 'gift ticket', as it enables more people who can afford the cheapest ticket to attend (which is essentially a bursary rate as this undercuts our 'break even point'). If you are very keen to attend the course, but find that the cost is prohibitive, please get in touch to find some alternative arrangement.

For those who need it, we have arranged for accommodation options near to the venue. August is the peak of peak season for Orkney, so we are very lucky to have this accommodation reserved for you! Please see articles linked for further information about the options available, and enquire with Rachael when you book to reserve your place.

Summary: 

Permaculture is a holistic design system for sustainable living, creating systems for minimum effort and maximum effect. This course is one weekend per month. The first module can also be taken as a stand alone introduction, which allows you to come along and meet everyone before you commit to the rest of the course. From February to June we will be exploring all the remaining core topics of the Permaculture Design Course, which enables participants to recieve the Permaculture Association’s Internationally recognised Certificate.
Using a diverse range of different teaching styles we will find out more about
* the Permaculture Design Process: SADIMET, and the theory and practice of different design tools from mapping to turning waste into resources. This includes different opportunities to use the design tools and create an entire design in a small group.
* Permaculture ethics and principles and their application
* Themes of soil, water, plants& trees, growing your own food, the built environment, resource use, social systems and contexts.
* Different sites including the Concrete Garden, North Beachmore, Tarbert Health Centre, and others (tbc).
* Next steps on your permaculture pathway

Summary: 

The revival of the Northern School in-person Permaculture Design Certificate course continues this Autumn when we will be working in partnership with Warland Farm to stage the "extensive" (12 days over 12 months) version of our course. We follow the international syllabus, but the content will reflect our surroundings in the Central Pennines.
 
As usual, the course is open to all. It is suitable for busy people in the locality and in particular for artisans and those interested in developing livelihoods and enterprises, either with family or from a community base. Throughout, there is an emphasis on learning from Nature to help us deal with the complexity and uncertainty surrounding our everyday lives.
 
Warland Farm is on the border of Lancashire and Yorkshire near Todmorden. The Farm supports a growing collective of artisans who are working with a steeply sloping hillside typical of the Upper Calder valley.
 
Our course is led by Angus Soutar who is an internationally certificated permaculture tutor. Angus has been a member of the PAB since 1990 and has now been teaching the PDC for 30 years.
 
The course starts on October 12th 2021 and more details are provided on our website.

Dates:
