The course is open to all, regardless of any previous experience or literacy levels. We will follow the international guidelines to cover the course syllabus in full. The content and teaching style is aimed at those wishing to apply permaculture in any setting, although it is particularly suitable for those interested in developing livelihoods and enterprises. We want to help you apply permaculture thinking to a wide range of applications, in a flexible way. We aim to provide you with the tools to facilitate family and community-based projects of all kind. Many of our students go on to set up permaculture-inspired initiatives of their own. You can read more about people who will benefit from the course.

The course will be led by Angus Soutar with Darren Roberts, Teresa Pereira and Sara Steeles. Angus has rich experience of guiding and implementing permaculture design in a variety of commercial settings. He is keen to share this growing body of knowledge during, and after, the life of this course.
