Looking to live in the world in positive, affirmative, and sustainable ways? Looking to find new, inspiring and economically viable ways to build lives and communities?
Permaculture is about living lightly on the planet, in harmony with nature and making sure that we can sustain human activities for many generations to come.
Using a vibrant combination of theory and practice, our Introduction to Permaculture course will introduce you to
- observation techniques
- natural systems and patterns
- ethics and principles of permaculture
- permaculture design tools
What to expect
The course is informative and interactive. You will leave having designed a permaculture space, putting into practice everything you have learned. Additionally, you will have the grounding to be able to progress onto the full Permaculture Design Course.
Our setting is an inspirational education resource, a superb place to draw inspiration from nature.
This course is facilitated by Liz from Grow South Permaculture and organised in conjunction with the Wild Hive Ecological Education Collective
