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.

With guest teachers & virtual project visits

The Permaculture Design Course is a 72-hour often life-changing experience, accredited by the UK Permaculture Association.

The 7 modules of our online Permaculture Design Course bring us together as a learning community to explore practical and creative solutions for creating resilient ecosystems and designing abundant lifestyles and livelihoods. We will discover how we can work with, rather than against nature to fulfil our human needs whilst caring for the earth and the people.

The course has a strong emphasis on ecological and social design thinking and how this can be applied in different parts of our life and society. It offers us the opportunity to face the predicaments of climate breakdown and the biodiversity crisis and form our own healthy response to these challenges.

Each module consists of 5 to 10 live face-to-face teaching hours and some compulsory as well as voluntary assignments. You will work on your own as well as in small groups exploring different subjects and designing a project of your choice that you will present to the group in the final module. On each of the 7 modules we will have a guest speaker, some of whom live in different parts of the world and are able to share their practice and perspective.

Summary: 

What does it take to transform our urban spaces into places where we can thrive together in community with nature? How can we elevate urban lifestyles with conscious and regenerative practices that will increase our living quality while also taking care of the life around us?

This certified and unique Permaculture Design Course will help you to build a strong foundation with deep knowledge, philosophy and hands-on practice to help navigate towards a more balanced, conscious life in the city.

For the first time Sarah Wu (Costa Rica), Eduardo Terzidis (Portugal) and Patrick Vernuccio/The Frenchie Gardener (Berlin) will join in collaboration as teachers to offer this urban-focussed Permaculture training and guide you through a unique experience that will have an everlasting impact on how you look at life.

Join this Urban R/Evolution in a group of like-minded humans that want to make the planet a better place.

Why this course? Why in a city?​

​By 2050, 68% of the world's population will live in cities. It becomes more crucial than ever to welcome back nature into these highly populated places, reconnecting back with seasons and cycles, strengthening our ability to work with the land and nature, to grow our own food, to understand the ecosystem around us while creating balance within ourselves and nature.

No matter where you live or what you do, it starts with yourself. Regenerating from the inside out, understanding interconnectedness, the social and value systems we grew up in, cycles and patterns in nature and the need for looking at yourself and everything around you holistically.
