Social Landscapes is running another full 72-hour Permaculture Design Course this year. The course is accredited by the UK Permaculture Association and puts special emphasis on the use of Permaculture in the urban context: small scale food growing, retrofitting of houses, water in the home, working in groups, livelihood and transition, while not ignoring other topics, such as agroforestry, natural building and bioregional planning.
While the Permaculture Design Course gives you an overview of many of the dimensions of local community resilience and transition (see the various topics on the Social Landscapes webpage), it prepares you to effectively use ecological design principles and permaculture tools in many contexts and be a designer yourself.
This particular course also includes 2 optional permablitzes (practical permaculture days) and 2 optional design clinics, where participants either design together or are supported in realising their personal design projects.
The course starts in April and runs over 7 weekends into July.
There is a free info evening in Streatham Hill coming up on Tuesday the 19th of January and more will likely be announced for February and March.
There are also a few places left on the 2-day Introduction to Permaculture end of January…
