This is a short but wide-ranging introduction to permaculture as an approach to designing sustainable ways of living and working. Running over 6 weeks, there will home study of around 1-2 hours per week that you can fit in at your convenience, plus 4 group sessions online of about 30-40 minutes. The taught content is followed by 2 assignments to deepen your practice and apply to a site of your choice; these will be due a month after the final online course seminar.
The course will give you a good grounding in the core elements of a permaculture design including the ethical framework or values that underpin it, the principles from nature that it draws upon, and a design framework for applying them. You will be encouraged to explore issues that matter to your own life and work and will be given practical examples of permaculture in action.
This course can be taken as a foundation module in conjunction with the accompanying blended course, The Living Soil, for the Permaculture Design Certificate taught in Wales by Angie Polkey and Alice Gray, accredited by the Permaculture Association of Britain.
