The courses will be interactive, friendly and fun. You’ll meet like minded people and learn new thinking tools and practical skills to enable you to become a permaculture designer. You will learn about:
- Permaculture ethics and design principles
- Design processes and tools
- Applying permaculture thinking to many issues – from growing food to refurbishing your home
One of the most tangible outcomes of the course is that each participant will complete a design relevant to themselves with an implementation plan of when and how to carry it out.
The course gives you a Permaculture Design Certifiate, accredited by the Permaculture Association of Britain. On completion of the course, participants also become eligible to study for a Diploma in Applied Permaculture Design.
