Permaculture Design


Permaculture Design

Permaculture is a design approach for living more lightly on the planet as thriving, resilient communities.

This course offers guidance, inspiration and support, for those seeking a more sustainable and integrated life. It is for anyone who is seeking responsible ways to care for ourselves, for each other and for the Earth.

Both practical and personally transforming, the course develops an understanding of  permaculture principles, ethics and design methods, providing skills that you can apply to your own life.

“Inspiring course focused on how to integrate permaculture into every aspect of life – it’s not just about gardening”

The course is held on dates through autumn 2012:  1-3 September (residential), 15-17 September, 29 September- 1 October, 13-15 October (full days).

It is based at Hawkwood Nursery, Organiclea’s growing site, an inspiring example of  permaculture applied to regenerate our land and our community on London’s abundant urban edge.
