 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 urban and sub-urban settings, as well as those in rural locations. The course content has a wide and flexible application, not only for home and garden design, but also for those wishing to apply the permaculture design techniques within their business or career.

 We aim to provide you with the tools to enhance and facilitate community-based projects of all kinds, including Transition Towns and Incredible Edible initiatives. 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 Teresa PereiraMarie Edwards and Suzanne Clifton, with occasional support from visiting teachers. 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.
