Leeds Introduction to Permaculture course

Introduction to Permaculture
Summary information

What the course will be like

We work to create a supportive and collaborative space where we can discuss important issues and learn in a playful and effective way.

We provide well prepared sessions based on good evidence and our own experience of using permaculture in our homes, gardens and community projects. The course is lively, participatory and thought provoking. There is a mix of group work, individual reflection, videos, slide shows, practical active sessions and great food!

We will cover

* Ethics & principles
* Design tools & processes
* Examples of permaculture
* An observation exercise, practical exercise or walk
* An overview of the permaculture network and how to find out more.

What we will learn together

Through the exercises and examples you will see how we can rethink our homes, communities and lives to be more productive, less polluting and more life-affirming. By the end of the two days you will be able to explain permaculture to other people and have some tools to take away and use. For some people, the intro course is enough to start a lifetime journey of discovery and action!

What to bring

* Food to share. Please label the food and try to avoid lots of packaging.
* Project information. If you are working on a project, then bring along any photos, maps or drawings that will help others to understand it.
* Practical clothes for outdoors.
* Notebook, pens, books or magazines to share.
