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.

We'll use your donations to further our plans to plant more trees and vines.

Training of Permaculture Teachers Course

ToT certificate

Andrea has recently returned from this course, working with Looby Macnamara, Chris Evans and Tomas Remiarz to learn more about the tools & techniques for teaching and facilitating permaculture learning. Fabulous to work with a group of such superbly passionate permaculture people, she’s come home full of ideas and raring to go!

We’re hosting a full schedule of permaculture learning at Casalinho this summer. Check out our Permaculture Design Course dates here.

Setting out on our Diploma journey

I think the most overwhelming part of setting off on this Diploma journey, for both of us, is working out where to start, and then how to pull everything together into a cohesive whole which someone can make sense of and we can keep track of. Our habit of writing notes and sketches on the back of cornflake packets probably won’t help when it comes to producing a readable portfolio!

Jeroen and I have decide to use this blog to chart our progress and activities. It’s for us as much as for you, as sometimes writing things down forces a sense of order on them.

First stage, Action Learning Pathways …..
