Heathercombe is a wonderful place to spend two weeks learning permaculture. It's established forest garden demonstrates how permaculture thinking can help us meet our physical needs, even in such challenging landscapes as Dartmoor. The course also shares how the Centre has a strong emphasis on how permaculture thinking can be applied to the important subject of caring for ourselves and each other. Empowerment is the essence of this course. The main design activity helps to consolidate all of the learning to empower participants to take permaculture back into their own homes, lives and community.

After teaching 96 permaculture design courses in other places, Aranya will finally get to teach one at home! Since moving to Trelowia at the end of August 2019, he and his partner Jules have been working on developing their home into a flagship permaculture demonstration site and documenting their process online. While it may be some while before this process may be considered anywhere near 'finished', there's plenty to be learned from observing a site in its early stages of development. Come and help shape the future! In addition we'll be visiting other local projects - those planned include Martin Crawford's forest garden, Plants for a Future's original site, and nearby Keveral Farm. This course offers an extra emphasis on small-scale food prodcution and forest garden systems.
