Learn how to grow more food for less effort, develop productive and resilient homes, gardens and communities, and find local solutions to our global social and environmental problems.

Join us on this four-day course covering permaculture ethics and principles, site design, house design, soil, organic gardening, water in the landscape, community and alternative economics, with practical sessions on composting, no-dig gardens, and site design.
