Permaculture Design Course starting January 2019 By Tess Wilmot Permaculture is all about learning from and working with nature to create sustainable systems for life and work. In the words of the Permaculture Association : ‘Permaculture is a design process. It helps design intelligent systems which meet human needs whilst enhancing biodiversity, reducing our impact on the planet and creating a fairer world for us all. People across the globe are creating thriving communities with permaculture.’
At the end of January there is an opportunity to take part in a Permaculture Design course in Plymouth. This course is certified by the Permaculture Association and will highlight many of the amazing projects across the city, including Food Plymouth. The tutors are Klaudia van Gool and myself. The programme includes a visit to a well-established and very inspiring permaculture project in Cornwall called Pentiddy.
The Permaculture Design Course gives you a good grounding of permaculture. It will enable you to use the permaculture design process can be applied both in physical, land-based settings and in personal, social and vocational situations. Expect a mix of teaching styles and interactive activities, combining indoor and outdoor classroom work. Grow your personal resilience and empowerment. The course consists of 12 days taught in two-day blocks approximately every two weeks. It starts at the end of January and finishes in April.
Last year’s participants designed a range of projects including allotments, a back yard growing and amenity space, a woodland project, a new community project and a personal work-life balance resource. In the words of MG, a participant in the 2018 course:
“My allotment has come on amazingly well, I have a shed, deck, terrace and fenced off growing area!! The design is still up in the spare room, it made such a difference, to not just the allotment but to my life personally”
