Course summary

This course follows the full 72 hour Permaculture Design Course using a blended approach which includes the more theoretical parts of the course being taught online - in Zoom, teleconference sessions on Tuesday evenings, and on Saturdays for the full day. This will enable people to travel and see some amazing permaculture sites around Galloway and get stuck in with some practicals, whilst being able to be with your own kids, in your own home (or whereever you are) for the other half of the course. Giving us the best of both worlds!
Permaculture is a holistic design system for sustainable living, creating systems for minimum effort and maximum effect.
The Permaculture Design Course is a 72 hour course which covers:
* the Permaculture Design Process: SADIMET, and the theory and practice of different design tools from mapping to implementation. This includes different opportunities to use the design tools and create an entire design in a small group.
* Permaculture ethics and principles and their application
* Themes of soil, water, plants& trees, growing your own food, the built environment, resource use, social systems and contexts. Each one explored in detail with a combination of student research and sharing from all participants
* Site visits
