Andy Goldring, Laura Smith, Helen White and Niels Corfield will be running the next Permaculture Design Course (PDC) in January 2019.
The course is open to anyone – no prior knowledge of permaculture is needed, just an enthusiasm for the subject area and a willingness to learn.
What will the course cover?
This is a full permaculture design course which follows an internationally recognised curriculum and offers information about, and some hands-on experience of, the basics of permaculture design: designing for sustainability in all walks of life.
Whether your interest is gardening, farming, planning, building homes, community work, economic regeneration, business or green lifestyles, the application of Permaculture principles empowers you to make a positive contribution towards a sustainable future.
The course will enable you to apply permaculture principles and design methods to help move towards sustainability. We will have a mixture of teaching styles, group work, visits and practical activities.
The course will be on Saturdays and Sundays, from 10am to 5pm:
