Introduction to Permaculture course

We have coming dates for you to choose from
26th - 28th April 2024 or 20th - 22nd September 2024

'The word 'permaculture' comes originally from 'permanent agriculture' and 'permanent culture' - it is about living lightly on the planet and making sure that we can sustain human activities for many generations to come, in harmony with nature. Permanence is not about everything staying the same. It is about stability, about deepening soils and cleaner water, thriving communities in self-reliant regions, biodiverse agriculture, and social justice, peace and abundance.

Course:

This three-day course is an exciting way to learn about permaculture design. The certificated course will provide an opportunity to actively learn about permaculture and how we can use it to benefit our lives more sustainably and positively. 

This is no ordinary ‘Introduction course’. It has been designed to support the gardener or landowner, helping us apply the tools and techniques we can use in our unique circumstances. 

We work with nature to get the most out of our environment.

We will give you a practical focus on the ethics, principles and applications of permaculture that you can take home and apply to your land, garden, workspace and lifestyle, connecting us harmoniously to the world around us.

At River Ebro Permaculture, we have implemented permaculture on the farm for the last ten years. You can see examples of executed designs and principles in practice and development, from greywater systems and compost toilets to no dig-beds and companion planting. We are making this site a diverse and regenerative system, providing for humans and the natural environment.

Course content:

  • What is Permaculture?

  • The principles and ethics of permaculture, an introduction and understanding

  • The history of permaculture

  • Site walk

  • observation skills

  • Systems thinking

  • Design practice

And much more...

 

By the end of the course, you will better understand permaculture and be able to apply the principle to your life, work and hobbies. Observe and read the landscape around you in a new light, understanding how nature and we can work together — providing us with an ethical framework to design regenerative systems at all scales.
