• Sustainable food and agriculture systems
• Sustainability and health
• Design exercise and group work

Day one and two covers the theory in various outdoor locations around Rippledown where we look at permaculture ethics and core principles, observation and surveying.

On completion you will have sufficient knowledge to be able to go off and start to practice it in your own life and begin to create plentiful yields of food, beauty, renewable resources and wildlife, sustainable communities and a more sustainable planet for all.
