Permaculture in the city -Galway
The day will offer an introduction to the what and the how of Permaculture, an overview of the main concepts, principles and patterns used in Permaculture design and an introduction to using applied Permaculture techniques, including 'Social Permaculture', in an urban setting.
It will be of benefit to anyone wanting to understand the basics of Permaculture, and anyone looking to use Permaculture to design and ecologically manage a piece of land at any scale be it in homes, balconies, small gardens, urban farms, roof tops as well as wider community and commercial spaces.
You will learn how to see your project from a Permaculture perspective; to think in patterns, to best identify and place elements in your project for maximum efficiency, and to make the most of natural, human and potential urban resources around you.
