Many of us want to live more sustainably, but with so many 'green' options and such busy lives it can be really hard to know where to start. Permaculture offers us an approach that helps us to identify the best tools and techniques for each of our own unique circumstances. This course covers the key principles of permaculture and how we can apply them in redesigning our homes and gardens to be both more sustainable and abundant. You'll learn about green building, energy efficiency, Permaculture gardening and much more.
This is course is designed to introduce permaculture principles but with an emphasis on supporting participants with designing their own homes and gardens.
We use group work, discussions, video, slide shows, observation and practical activities as learning methods. These are supportive of different learning styles and for people with learning challenges. Our courses are not just about imparting information to the students, there is plenty of knowledge out there, the important thing is knowing how to use this and feeling confident to do so.
Empowerment is the essence of the course. We will be using practical and theoretical teaching methods to create a fun, lively and inclusive experience. As a group we will benefit from collaborative learning and from having fun together. We don't expect any previous permaculture knowledge and recognise that everyone has their own unique skills, knowledge and areas of interest to bring.
