It may interest some of you to know that I am collaborating with Suzie Cahn of Carraig Dulra (permaculture smallholding in County Wicklow) and Lusi Alderslowe (Scottish permaculture teacher) to bring about a new 12 day intensive Permaculture Design course at Carraig Dulra this June 13th-24th. 'Intensive' meaning we will all live & learn onsite together for the duration of the course!
This is an opportunity to explore many areas of Permaculture in depth, with a diversity of tutors, Aside from the three of us we will learn from local experts: craftspeople, natural builders, botanists, foragers, beekeepers.... at a site where permaculture design is being productively put to use in the landscape and in the people-scape. Carraig Dulra features forest gardening, permaculture gardens, natural building, landscape water harvesting systems, ponds, the ooby store project, community development & much much more....) There will be alot of hands on practical learning along with ecology & design theory.
The course is fully endorsed by the Permaculture Association in the UK, this means that we will be covering all the 'core curriculum' that you will find on any Permaculture Design Course worldwide, it also means that particpants will get a certification of completion from the P.A.UK. -you can use this to go on & complete a permaculture diploma if you wish. Most importantly it means that the quality of the course will be top notch! Please have a read of the course description below the poster image (keep scrolling down this email!⁾ to see more detail.
If you are interested in joining us for this adventure you can book/get more info through the Carraig Dulra Website or contact me by email or phone, Places are limited to 20 people so do let us know if you are feeling tempted!
