This one day workshop will see us get to grips with the basics of Permaculture as a functional design approach.
We will explore the ethics, along with some key design principles and planning tools. The day will be focussed on design for small & simple home & garden scale solutions.
It will be participatory & engaging, and there will be a small practical session also.
Participants will gain an initial understanding of what Permaculture is, how to think in permaculture terms, and also some ideas & techniques which can help us to create more productive & resilient homes & gardens.
