Join us "on the promenade" for this full Permaculture Design Certificated course, running by the seaside over 6 weekends. We start on 2nd/3rd December 2017 and continue one weekend a month in 2018.

The venue is The Parade, Hoylake's thriving community arts centre which is situated on the Hoylake sea-front at the north-western tip of the Wirral peninsula,

The course will be led by Angus Soutar with support from Paul Smith and visiting teachers. Angus has rich experience of guiding and implementing permaculture design in a variety commercial settings. He is keen to share this growing body of knowledge during, and after, the life of this course.
