About the Introduction to Permaculture Course

An excellent way to find out more about permaculture is to attend a one or two day introductory course. This ‘taster’ will provide an opportunity to actively learn about the ethics, principles and applications of permaculture design, either as a 'stand-alone' or as a lead-in to the more in depth full Permaculture Design Course.
