Summary: 

Low Carbon Living and the Climate Emergency Inspired by Holmgren's Permaculture

We can declare our own climate emergencies at home with our families and with our lives at work and at home. What would this look like? 
These evenings aim to empower us to plan for the worst and hope for the best. To shake ourselves out of the crazy panic. To uncover some ways we can make a difference in our own lives that will help reduce our carbon emissions, support the natural systems and meet our human needs.
All evenings will include:  An overview and introduction to Permaculture thinking through principles and patterns applied to low carbon living- Practical activity. Don't panic! Whats the problem? An overview of tools to apply. With an emphasis on low cost and easy to implement take home ideas solutions. A look at the 3 Bs. This workshop has been inspired by David Holmgren's RetroSuburbia. The Downshifter's Guide to a Resilient Future
Evening 1. The Behavioural Field: Patterns of Decision and Action and includes how we make beneficial connections. This is the peoplecare section. Arguably the key to change is how we behave. Carbon footprint. Calming eco-anxiety.
Evening 2 Biological Field: Patterns of life and growth. This explores effective land and resource use and includes growing food. Land regeneration.
Evening 3. Built Field: Patterns of Human Habitats. This looks at the built environment and includes eco-retrofitting your home. Energy. Water. Humanure.

This is an evolving course and we plan to harvest and share insights.

Summary: 

Here at Garden Cottage we can produce over a ton of fod a year - but mostly between July and October (being the same latitude as Alaska). So how can we spread the use of our harvest around twelve months of the year? This two day course focuses on a range of preservation techniques for both seasonal produce and some year round opportunities covering a wide range of topics which will be adjusted to the interests of the participants. Lunch is included (including sampling previously prepared preserves). From wild garlic pesto to elderflower cordial, freezing soft fruit to vegetable crisps and many junctions in between. A great couple of days!

Summary: 

This in depth course will give participants a toolbox of ways to engage children in permaculture using a holistic, creative approach which involves children in the whole process as a partner in their learning.

REGISTER HERE: https://forms.gle/28jQ71G4dmrUz6Qj6
MORE INFO: http://childreninpermaculture.com/events/cip-tot/

The aim of the course is for participants to have a thorough understanding of the Children in Permaculture pedagogy, activities, curriculum and permaculture design tools, such that they can create a portfolio for their next step towards becoming a CiP Trainer. The portfolio will include a Permaculture Design for a children's garden and a Session plan for working with children. Both these designs would be of the standard of a Diploma in Applied Permaculture Design, and can be submitted as one of the ten designs for the diploma. On completion of the practitioners training course and the portfolio, graduates will be official 'CiP practitioners' which means that they will be able to work with children as 'Children in Permaculture practitioners' on courses, events etc.

It is for people who have completed a Permaculture Design Course (72 hour or approximately 12 day course) and the CiP two day introduction course (if you haven't completed this introductory course, it is on the 21st & 22nd April 2020 at the same venue).

Summary: 

NOW ONLINE!: 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.

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.

This training course is being led by Lusi Alderslowe, with co-teachers Rakesh Rootsman Rak (London), Nim Robins (Wales) and Gaye Amus (Finland) and is a product of the three year European ‘Children in Permaculture’ project in which best practice has been shared across the continent from Finland to Italy, Scotland to Romania.

Summary: 

We will look at restorative pruning of mature trees, regular pruning of shaped trees and initial pruning of young trees.

It is by kind permission from the Mayhew family that we will have access to their well established orchards. There are a variety of trees in different stages of growth so there will be a lot to learn about here and plenty of opportunity for hands on experience.

This course will also cover tool use and maintenance and health and safety.

Please Note ; Pruning courses are always subject to weather and may be cancelled at short notice.
