ECOLOGICAL LITERACY is the knowledge and understanding of how nature’s systems work, and how all living beings are dependent on and interconnected with each other. Taking its roots from ecology and whole systems thinking, ecological literacy is an awareness-building course that provides necessary information on the principles and processes of natural systems, how they make life on earth possible and how we can live in more harmony and integrity with these systems.

Summary: 

Various plant species can be used to give an indication of if a site has been continuously wooded for a long time. These plant species are known as ancient woodland indicator plants. Lists of ancient woodland indicator plants vary in different parts of the UK, but they all have in common the fact that the more of these species found in a wood, the more likely it is to be ancient. We are going to spend the day browsing the ground flora of two woodlands. We will try to identify and tick off as many as we can from a species list of fifty-five species.

Summary: 

This two-day course will consist of practical sessions on surveying slopes and defining contours, with the aim of helping the development of the Summerbottom permaculture site at Broadbottom, near Hyde, Cheshire. Organised by the Northern School of Permaculture, the course will run on Saturday 19th and Saturday 26th of March 2022,

On the first day, we will use basic surveying techniques, including those using equipment constructed entirely on-site out of commonly available materials (no batteries required!). Participants will get “hands-on” experience with this equipment. We will also be introducing some of the 20th Century versions of instruments such as the dumpy level and the inclinometer (still no batteries required). We will look at the various ways of establishing levels and contours on the site, leading to a layout for swales and diversion drains for future implementation.

You will learn how to construct and use an A-frame with a plumb line; a simple water level, a dumpy (optical) level as used by builders, and other instruments to establish contours across the site.

This will be followed by a day on the 26th of March where we will look at various ways of mapping the survey results.

Activities are led by Angus Soutar along with colleagues from the Northern School of Permaculture. More details and a booking form are provided on our website.

Dates: 
19 March 2022
26 March 2022

19th of March - Surveying. 26th of March - Mapping. Each day runs from 10 am to 4 pm.

Summary: 

We associate forests with growth, creativity, diversity, connection, strength and resilience – characteristics that make for healthy, vibrant, productive workplace too.

Over two immersive days in a beautiful woodland setting, our programme will guide you through the various elements of a healthy workplace ecosystem, showing how changes, small and big, can transform the way we think about our work, workplace wellbeing, our relationships with colleagues and customers and our place in the wider world.

Drawing on learning from nature via disciplines such as biomimicry, ecopsychology, biology, systems thinking, regenerative leadership, psychological safety, permaculture and holistic design frameworks, you will explore how to take small steps towards having a healthy organisation modelled on ecosystem design, with wide-ranging benefits for people, productivity, purpose and planet.

Both thought-provoking and practical, at the end of the two days you will have:

- a plan for action to inform your own wellbeing for home and work;
- practical and achievable ideas to take back to your workplace;
- an abundance of resources and further reading to share with colleagues;
- and a unique toolkit of innovative tools to ensure your visions can be turned into action.

Facilitators: Sarah Spencer (Think like a Tree), JK McCreight (Where the Mind Grows) and Samantha Woods (Seed of the Forest) They bring a wealth of experience from business coaching, workplace wellbeing, personal wellbeing, permaculture and ecosystem design.

Summary: 

This is a 2-week natural building workshop focusing on efficient, eco-friendly home heating with integrated natural building construction techniques.

Rocket stoves have been an area of enthusiastic development in natural building circles for at least the last 30 years. They not only offer self build potential, but can be super-efficient forms of heating. The batch rocket mass heater is the most efficient form yet.

This course/workshop continues in the tradition of rocket stove experimentation, but with a solid, well-tested core. We will build a batch rocket mass heater at Quinta do Vale (see our project page), but in a configuration which, to our knowledge, hasn’t been tried yet.

Participants will learn …

* the principles of design/function of masonry/mass heaters
* the principles of ‘free gas movement’, the Russian-pioneered revolution in masonry stoves
* the essential ratios in sizing and designing a mass heater
* the construction of the heater core
* cob construction and using cob in stove/heater construction
* the construction of the ‘bell’
* cob and earthen plastering of interior walls

The course is taught in English.

No previous building experience is necessary but the particular challenges of this mountainside location mean the course is unsuitable for people with mobility issues.

The accommodation is camping on-site. 3 vegetarian meals a day are served. Special diets can be catered for. There are hot showers and free wifi on-site. There’s also a nearby river beach and cafés, all within 300m of the quinta.

The surrounding valleys have attracted eco-immigrants from all over the world during the last 10-15 years. We often manage to squeeze events going on in the wider community into our courses so participants can get a taste for the exciting things happening here. So be warned – this place and the landscape and community it’s embedded in can capture your heart and your imagination!

This is a special opportunity to gain hands on experience implementing Regenerative 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.
