Summary: 

Join us for this exciting opportunity to learn more about permaculture in Glasgow. Permaculture is a design system based on ethics and principles deduced from observing nature. During the course you will find out more about the permaculture ethics and principles and how they are applied in nature and in a garden, and see some other examples of their application. You will also be invited to participate in a practical activity, such as composting.

Why join this course:
*Permaculture is solutions-focussed, so you can learn something which you can then apply to your work, life, garden or projects.
*You will meet other people who are interested in sustainability.
*It is the first module of the full Permaculture Design Course, which is the standard 72 hour course, internationally recognised as the core introduction to permaculture.
*The teacher is on the Permaculture Association's certifying teachers register.
*The vegetarian pot luck lunches are always a highlight of the course!

Permaculture is a holistic design system for sustainable living, creating systems for minimum effort and maximum effect. The introduction is the first module of the full design course and gives the basic grounding in what permaculture is and how it can be applied. It includes an overview of topics that are covered in more detail during the rest of the course. In general we are indoors in the morning and outdoors in the afternoon. Normally the first afternoon is spent doing observations and the second afternoon is a practical activity, such as composting.

Summary: 

Permaculture is a natural design science mimicking the patterns of nature. It can be used to help build regenerative and resilient landscapes and communities. It is a solutions based, systems thinking, design process which can help you to adapt to and build resilience for changes in the natural and social ecosystems.

This course will give you an holistic overview of the basic theory and practical application of how permaculture can be used in what you do. We will show you how to use permaculture design in your garden as a pretext to how you can use social permaculture and build your own toolkit to help you with challenges you may be facing in your life.

Examples of areas we will cover are:

What permaculture is
The ethics of permaculture
Zones and sectors
Pattern recognition
How you can use permaculture in your everyday life
The practical application of permaculture design
How to build a toolkit for adapting to environmental and personal change and for resilience for mental wellbeing.

We will also visit the 52 Climate Actions initiative and how it can help you to find ways to do something hopeful and positive towards climate change. https://www.52climateactions.com/

There will be an opportunity to immerse yourself in nature at Wishtree, connecting with your senses and the magical surroundings.

Facilitators

This course is facilitated by Liz and Sam.

Liz is a mother, sustainability professional, eco-retrofit project manager, gardener, and chartered civil engineer with a Diploma in Applied Permaculture Design and has been teaching introductory Permaculture courses for 6 years. She has a thriving urban permaculture garden with a mini orchard, pond, hugel beds and much more. She also has a passion for alternative forms of education for children.

Sam’s passion for permaculture design started in Kenya after he completed a Permaculture Design Certificate. Permaculture presented a new set of design tools that inspired and shifted his perspective on the amazing possibilities of what can be achieved for people and nature, through good design. This led to Sam managing Sutton Community Farm on the edges of London in 2012-16, which he helped turn into a successful community-owned business. Today, Sam works at Forum for the Future focusing on ways we can shift our food and farming systems to be radically more sustainable.
