Introduction To Permaculture
July 20th to 22nd
August 17th to 19th
Venue: Wishtree, Devon, EX21 5JN
Time: 9am – 5pm (each day)
Our introduction course is unique as we go beyond the garden and offer the opportunity to share knowledge on social permaculture. This gives you an holistic experience showing how the basic theory and the practical application of permaculture can be used in your personal life, at home, in your community and for wellbeing. We have created a third day especially to cover the social aspect, using our valuable experiences and interaction with nature to inspire us.
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. The aim is to bring together a set of specific elements which, when designed in the right way, can help create sustainable economic and ecological systems.
This 3 day intensive will introduce you to the basic ethics and principles of permaculture, introducing you to a variety of innovative tools. No knowledge of permaculture is necessary in order to attend this course.
