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.

  1. I went on the 2011 course and it was amazing! I met so many interesting and lovely people it restored my faith in humanity.

    I’m now embarking on a full diploma course and looking forward to spreading the word of Permaculture 😉

  4. Permaculture and our teacher Hannah are inspiring. Those people who did the course last time are hoping that along with this year’s Leicester permaculture students we can form a Shires (we were drawn from Derbyshire, Northamptonshire and Leicestershire) Permaculture Community so that we can share skills, ideas and labour for each other’s projects. With this in mind on a couple of Saturday evenings during the course we’ll have social meet ups so that people can have a chance to meet and ‘network’.
    If you’ve already got a handle on permaculture or have done the course before you’ll be welcome too.
