@ Lackan Cottage Farm, Co. Down
Friday 4th - Sunday 6th September
Our 2nd visit to Lackan Cottage where Steve, Claire & Lyra "want to demonstrate how a low impact lifestyle can be a practical reality, meeting our own needs for food, energy, waste and water from the land around us"
Lackan Cottage Farm is a 6 acre smallholding featuring natural building, eco-renovation, renewable energies, permaculture gardens, forest gardens, regenerated & newly planted native coppice woodlands, waste water treatment systems, rainwater harvesting, small livestock & horses. A practical, lived-in permaculture demonstration site.
This workshop will be a weekend of interactive, exploratory & hands-on learning about the core principles of Permaculture & how to use them. It's an excellent opportunity to learn permaculture theory & practise. We will cover all the core themes; ecological design principles, ethics, & try our hands at some small permaculture design projects onsite. There will be a blend of thinking, listening, discussion, observing, interacting, exploring, questioning, designing & hands-on practical sessions.
Course cost is on a sliding scale with limited lower cost places, It includes all meals & the option to camp onsite. Other accommodation options (such as tipi or holiday cottage) will be available at separate cost.
