This information-packed two-day course is suitable for home gardeners, professional horticultural staff and anyone interested in living sustainably.

Permaculture can be defined as a design system for sustainable living.

It considers the patterns and relationships observed in nature; landscape, plant systems, flora and fauna, and the inter-relationships between them.

Permaculture imitates natural systems to provide a healthy and maintainable life style, yield bumper crops, recycled waste and low energy use housing.

In this two day intensive course you will be introduced to the underlying ethics, domains and principles which govern this design philosophy.

Permaculture practice and thinking can provide you with a strong ‘recipe’ of checks and balances to guide you through various aspects of living sustainably, from urban food production to using our built environments sustainably.

Bill Mollison – the founder of Permaculture - built a base of 10 design principles. David Holmgren, the co-founder, works with 12 principles. Together, we explore these principles and begin to consider how you can use them to create a more satisfying and resilient lifestyle.
