Permaculture for Your Allotment and Garden

Introduction to Permaculture
Summary information

Learn how to use ethical design practices to make your growing space productive and resilient by working with nature. We will be looking at both the theory and practice of designing a plot including soil health, planting plans and materials, water use and harvesting and how to centre your design to meet the permaculture ethics of Earth Care, People Care and Fair Shares.
This is a two day course based in Leicester. Day 1 , we will be meeting at the Parish Centre in Evington and Day 2 , we will be travelling to a nearby site to put the Day 1 learning into a practical context.
