We will be running online courses in 2021. More details to follow on our new website.
About our courses
Permaculture is a natural design science mimicking the patterns of nature. It can be used to help build regenerative and resilient landscapes and communities. It is a solutions based, systems thinking, design process which can help you to adapt to and build resilience for changes in the natural and social ecosystems.
This course will give you an holistic overview of the basic theory and practical application of how permaculture can be used in what you do. We will show you how to use permaculture design in your garden as a pretext to how you can use social permaculture to support your own emotional wellbeing and build connections in your community. We will be sharing resilience tools by Chris Johnstone as part of our social toolkit for wellbeing.
The course is run live, face to face with two educators who will facilitate your journey in growing your skills and knowledge of permaculture design. The course includes some home practice activities which support the sessions and group work.
We will invite you to do the home practice to help you become more familiar with permaculture and how to apply it to your individual setting. This will support the sessions themselves as part of the reflection process. It will also enable you to share the activities with friends and family.
We encourage online collaboration with the other course participants to guide your experience during the course and to share your home practice during the sessions as part of helping to build a culture of collaboration and shared interest.
This online course runs for 2 hours a week for 9 weeks, plus upto 2 hours home practice, each week.

About our online courses:
“I think one can easily forget that it is suppose to be “only” an introduction to permaculture. I think you give much more than that. You initiate a process, if one is ready for it. This might be because of the subject, but I think it is also because of your very personal approach. I have enjoyed every moment of it and am sad that it will come to its end.”
