Our permaculture design course will run from 5.00pm on Saturday 16th September to 6.00pm on Saturday 30th September. There will be a day off mid- course and half day off each week.
If you are looking to make significant positive changes in your life, then the permaculture design course will almost certainly help you. This practical course provides you with a broad introduction to the applications of permaculture in a number of different situations, from food production to community structures, and alternative currencies to eco-housing. The course culminates in the main design activity that helps to consolidate all of the learning and empower you to take permaculture back into your home, life and community.
We will be using practical, experiential and theoretical teaching methods to create a fun, lively and inclusive experience. In addition to traditional lecture-style teaching, we use group work, discussions, observation exercises, guided walks, practical activities, videos, and slide shows as learning methods. These are supportive of different learning styles and for people with learning difficulties. We also visit projects where permaculture theory is being put into action.
As a group we will benefit from collaborative learning and from spending time together. We don’t expect any previous knowledge and recognise that everyone has their own unique skills, knowledge and areas of interest to bring to the course.
This course is for anyone who believes that we need to find ways to better care for ourselves, for each other and for the Earth.
