Permaculture is an ecological design system which allows us to meet our needs for food, shelter, health, and other aspects of well-being while at the same time enhancing the natural environment around us. This is done by observing how nature works and applying the resulting principles and ethics in designs.
This one-day 'taster' course will offer you an introduction to Permaculture as a design approach. The course will cover principles and ethics, some design methods, and offer plentiful examples of how Permaculture has been applied to solve a variety of problems. This can be the start of setting you out on a lifetime-long fruitful Permaculture journey! Their tutors for the day are Nenya Milne and Jenny Smith. Nenya has been teaching permaculture courses in Edinburgh since 2015, having completed her diploma in 2012. Jenny has been involved in Permaculture since 2015 and has been teaching alongside Nenya and James Chapman on Permaculture courses run by Nonstuff Industries. No experience necessary. Please wear suitable gardening clothing and footwear.
