Summary: 

The Willow Backpack is currently the most in vogue basket in town (and out of town too!). This practical basket can be used for foraging, shopping or even carrying your picnic on a walk.
Because there are more complex techniques involved than some other baskets, this willow backpack workshop is more suitable if you have some experience of willow weaving (or attended any of our other willow workshops).
During the two day workshop you will learn how to weave the D-shaped base, add upright stakes, weave the sides with 3-rod wale and French rand weaves and put on a border.

Take home your own unique and beautiful willow backpack basket.

All tools and equipment will be provided.

Places are limited to six participants per event and must be booked in advance.

NB. This workshop will take place indoors with social distancing and enhanced hygiene measures in place. There will be a smaller number of participants than usual, to allow for at least 2m between all participants. Everybody will be required to wear a mask, unless exempt. We will also have windows open for good ventilation. Please come prepared to work in a cool room with plenty of warm clothing. Please also bring all of your own drinks, food and cups etc. There will be access to toilets and hand washing plus plenty of hand sanitiser available.

Summary: 

We associate woodlands, forests and other natural ecosystems with resilience, longevity and harmony, but often struggle to experience these in our own lives.

By exploring principles derived from nature, this programme will guide you step-by-step through a design cycle that can be used for a wide range of personal circumstances – relationships, health, wellbeing, leisure and work.

You may want to make a significant change, some small improvements, or just want to be more content or effective in your everyday life, and whatever your circumstances this course has something to offer.

The programme comprises six two and a half hour sessions with activities to do at home. During the six week programme you will build up the tools and resources to complete a design that is personal to you after the course. All course materials are provided and you will go away with a toolkit of tools and principles that can be used again and again.

The course will take place in a small group via Zoom.

For more details please see the website.

This course is stand-alone and can also be the first step in training as a Think like a Tree facilitator.

Summary: 

A course for school & nursery teachers, forest school leaders, nature kindergarten teachers, parents and other educators to learn how to engage children in all aspects of permaculture, learning from nature with a child-led approach.

REGISTER HERE; https://forms.gle/f2UJxwrpD46SqMrLA

Permaculture is about working with nature, based on deep observation and understanding of the principles which underpin natural systems. Childhood is the ideal time to get to know nature, and how nature works, through play and experimentation.

We will:

*Find out how permaculture ethics and principles can be applied to education, in how we speak, the activities we engage in and in the spaces we design.
*Discover some great benefits of outdoor learning, including relevant research, and learn how to create session plans which engage the whole child: eyes, heart, hands and head, through active participation in a session learning about soil.
*Look at different garden designs both in school and home gardens and get involved in a practical activity such as testing soil.
* Learn about the different activities that we can do with children and, more importantly, think about how the way we approach the child can enable us to think of infinite possible activities.

Summary: 

This is a special opportunity to gain hands on experience implementing Permaculture systems under the guidance of experienced and internationally active Permaculture Designer Rico Zook. For one month we will live as a community designing, implementing and learning about the many different regenerative systems that are part of a functioning and productive holistic farm ecosystem. This is an in depth experience of living and working on a developing permaculture farm in the beautiful Pyrenees north of Barcelona Spain.
The Can Lliure Project is shifting from the pioneering stage to a secondary successional development phase that gives you the incredible opportunity of real life hands-on practical Permaculture applications in the field, in real life, while being mentored and guided by professionals.
This internship is strongly focused on practical hands-on learning from tools, their care, safe use, and maintenance, to providing, scheduling, guiding and encouraging their use in as many different and useful projects as possible.

Summary: 

Last years successful course in memory of Martin Wolfe, will be happening again this year and although sadly he is no longer with us, we hope that our course will continue his wonderful work of sharing of knowledge and skills, we know this was so important to him.

We have created a course that combines his lectures as well as Marina's experience of working along side Martin and setting up her own farms with Agroforestry methodologies.

“Agroforestry is both a traditional practice, and a modern practice. It has undergone a renewal and uptake for modern sustainable farming methods over the last 30-40 years The name of "agroforestry" was created in the 1977 to describe the deliberate use of incorporating trees into farming practice”

The course will be run by Marina O'Connell - Marina O’Connell is a horticulturist, permaculture designer, tutor and a biodynamic farmer. She has over 30 years of experience of training and growing in sustainable food systems including designing and implementing agroforestry systems on three farms. This two day course will equip you with an overview in how to design, implement and manage an agroforestry system. Starting with an introduction to Agroforestry and it benefits the course will lead you through designing and planning your own agroforestry system

We will visit four agroforestry systems on the Dartington Hall Estate, incorporating Alley Cropping, the Forest Garden at Martin Crawford’s Agroforestry Research Centre, and the new Agroforestry plots at the Schumacher College and at Huxhams Cross Farm.
