So What IS Permaculture?
’PERMACULTURE’ is a word that was coined in Australia during the 1970s to describe a design system pioneered as a response to what many globally saw as serious challenges to the survival of all of us. It has since become a worldwide movement encompassing all aspects of how human beings can live harmoniously in relation to our Earth and it’s finite resources.
What If I Can’t Afford A Course?
We believe that our permaculture and other courses offer very good value for money, and are a worthwhile investment for individuals, projects and organisations. However we do recognise that for some people costs can be hard to find in the current climate of austerity, in which case we suggest a number of creative options to make your learning more affordable.
