Introduction To Permaculture

Dates: TBC

Venue: Wishtree, Devon, EX21 5JN


Full £200

Our three day introduction course goes beyond the garden, offering insight into social permaculture and its benefits. It will give you an holistic overview, showing how the basic theory and the practical application of permaculture can be used in your garden, personal life, home & work; in your community and for wellbeing.

During the three transformative days we will use our wealth of experience and knowledge of living off-grid, working with our community, and our deep interaction with nature, to help inspire you into reframing your approach to how you live and work. We will look at how to design your garden and lifestyle using minimal resources and finances, the benefits of zoning and the importance of working with nature and networking.

We will introduce you to inspiring techniques we have used to build our own psychological resilience, as well as practical hands-on skills. We will link these together using permaculture design frameworks and storytelling, to help you flourish & thrive, and be empowered in times of challenge.

Permaculture is a natural design science mimicking the patterns of nature. Its solution-3based, systems thinking approach can be used to help build regenerative and resilient landscapes and communities. It brings together a set of specific, desired, elements. When these are designed to work together in an efficient way, they can help create sustainable economic and ecological, resilient and regenerative systems. This course will introduce you to all of this, highlighting the importance of the ethics and principles of permaculture and how permaculture can be used in whatever you do.

Our courses are interactive and fun, using a variety of free flow, game-based, indoor & outdoor sessions to deliver creative, rejuvenating learning. You will have an opportunity to tour Wishtree where we use permaculture to underpin how we think, live and work.

No knowledge of permaculture is necessary in order to attend this course. We welcome those aged 10 to 100+. Children must be accompanied by a responsible, caring adult.
