About me

Hannah Thorogood has been a permaculture designer and teacher since 2004. She completed her diploma in applied permaculture deisgn in 2005. Hannah is a senior tutor within the british diploma system and is also one of the diploma tutor trainers. Hannah teaches PDCs at her home farm, The Inkpot in Lincolnshire as well as a number of other courses such as the Permaculture Teacher Training Courses.

Hannah's main passion is permaculture farming - she runs the Inkpot Organic Farm, a Permaculture LAND centre. She uses regeneratice grazing techiques to manage 130 acres with a diversity of animals - cows, sheep, turkeys, hens, goats and ducks to build soil, sequester carbon, increase habitat and produce award winning food with very high welfare standards. Most wednesdays the farm opens to volunteers to come along and join in with what she is up to that day - please do get in touch if you would like to come along and bring a lunch to share.

Hannah is very busy running the farm, her family, tutoring apprentices and teaching various courses, so if she does take a while to respond to communications, bear with her!
