Introduction To Permaculture

Introduction to Permaculture
Summary information

Permaculture is a natural design science mimicking the patterns of nature. It can be used to help build regenerative and resilient landscapes and communities. It is a solutions based, systems thinking, design process which can help you to adapt to and build resilience for changes in the natural and social ecosystems.

This course will give you an holistic overview of the basic theory and practical application of how permaculture can be used in what you do. We will show you how to use permaculture design in your garden as a pretext to how you can use social permaculture and build your own toolkit to help you with challenges you may be facing in your life. The content will include references to Chris Johnstone's work on building emotional resilience.

Examples of areas we will cover are:

What permaculture is
The ethics of permaculture
Zones and sectors
Pattern recognition
How you can use permaculture in your everyday life
The practical application of permaculture design
How to build a toolkit for adapting to environmental and personal change and for resilience for mental wellbeing.

We will also visit the 52 Climate Actions initiative and how it can help you to find ways to do something hopeful and positive towards climate change.

There will be an opportunity to immerse yourself in nature at Wishtree, connecting with your senses and the magical surroundings.
