Seasonal Talks

 Join us for engaging and thought provoking talks on zoom, every Thursday, from 6.30 to 8 pm latest. Let's connect, debate and network to start creating a better future for ourselves, our families and communities. Change starts with everyone of us, right here, right now.

 The current programme is brought to you by the diverse guild of teachers, apprentice teachers, graduates, practitioners and associates of the Northern School of Permaculture. The Autumn and Winter season focuses on resilience, design practice, education strategies fit for the 21st century and how to cultivate wellbeing in challenging times.

 Angus Soutar will kickstart the Autumn and Winter programme with the talk: 'Onward into the Darkness' on Thursday 5th November. Check the programme below and book your place asap for each talk you wish to attend. Places are limited so don't dilly-dally for too long. After booking you should receive a confirmation message and on the day of the talk a link to join.

 If you are currently studying with the Northern School, or have completed a course in the past, you can select the pay later option which effectively allows you to book a free place. Otherwise the suggested donation is £5 per talk.

 If you can, please, make a donation. It would be greatly appreciated, your contributions help us cover the costs of creating a private video channel to upload the talks to after the live sessions, since so many of you have asked us to make the content available after the events.

 These talks are open to newcomers, the permaculture curious and prospective students wishing to survey the Northern School's social landscapes. You are unlikely to find us actively cultivating a presence on social media so this is the place to connect with us.

 Looking forward to seeing and meeting you soon.
