What is Permaculture?

Permaculture is a sustainable design system that provides for human needs while having positive effects on the surrounding environment.

It is based on the ethics of earth care, people care and fair share, and provides practical solutions to the global crises we are currently facing.

Permaculture is for EVERYONE, regardless of their education, background, or previous experience.

Permaculture is NOT just about trees, or just about gardening! You don't need loads of land to practice it and it's a design method that can be applied to all social systems.

Sustainable Land Use course with Patrick Whitefield

Whoo Hoo!!! It’s booked up, it’s official! I’m going to be attending the Sustainable Land Use course with Patrick Whitefield early next year.

Patrick WhitefieldWhoo hoo!

Do I sound excited?!

The course is actually something I looked at a while ago but at that stage it was held over 9 weeks, which was a bit too much to commit to (though sadly, there’s no longer any funding available). It’s now been compressed into five, plus a half term week in between. It’s still a hell of a long time to be away, and I’ve no idea how we’ll manage that, but it’s such a spectacular opportunity that I can’t  not go just because it would be inconvenient.

The first part of the course consists of three modules: Ecology, Organic Horticulture and Woodland. Then the final two weeks are the 72 hour Permaculture Design Course.

It’s not long from now at all. I hope the goats and Jeroen can make friends before I go …..
