Introduction to Permaculture Design

Finding solutions in challenging times!

CREATE A BRIGHTER FUTURE

Are you wondering if there is a different way of engaging with life and living systems that would work for the benefit of all? Are you looking for positive solutions to current environmental, local and global issues? Permaculture design offers another way of responding to our current crises and in relating to the natural world around us; providing tools to reflect on and work with the complex patterns and systems we find in nature. These techniques can also be fruitfully applied to various aspects of our human lives.

If you are curious about what permaculture design is but are not ready to commit to the full Permaculture Design Course (PDC), this course is the ideal way to learn about what permaculture has to offer.

Over two days we will provide you with an introduction to permaculture design and a basic understanding of how whole systems thinking can be applied in ecological and genuinely sustainable design. By the end of the weekend you should be aware of some principles of permaculture design and a few tools which you can use to facilitate permaculture inspired initiatives in your community. We aim to empower people to design sustainable solutions for themselves and with others rather than simply follow current trends.
