Introduction to Permaculture

Introduction to Permaculture
Summary information

Permaculture helps us find practical solutions to complex problems, it’s for everyone - even if you have no garden or land! Find out how it can help you and the planet on this accessible, friendly weekend course.

Spend time with like-minded people and leave with practical tools and tips, plus hopefully reassurance that there are lots of small but mighty things we can do to salve the climate and wildlife emergencies around us.

This weekend course is set up to be informative and inspiring, and will help you:
• Understand the Ethics and Principles of permaculture
• Learn eco’ observation and design methods
• Understand natural systems and patterns
• Share skills and knowledge with others
• Enjoy reflective time in nature

The course gives you the opportunity to discuss important issues in a positive, creative and supportive space. Students have told us they find the small-group learning lively, participatory and thought provoking. You’ll get to join in hands-on work together, trying out down-to-earth techniques like no-dig lasagna-beds and self-watering pots. The course also starts you off on designing your own permaculture patch or project – straight away putting in to practice the learning you’ve gained!

This course is hosted at a permaculture-based community garden and led by Emily Howgate and Shila Fletcher of Muck & Magic. Both are permaculture practitioners and attentive facilitators, with experience working in national conservation groups and local community orgs.

Cost £125 (concessions on request)
