Sept 29-30:- Intro to PermaCulture @Hockerton Housing Project (HHP)

A fantastic couple of days learning about Permaculture at Hockerton Housing Project…


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.

 


Permaculture combines three key aspects:


1. An ethical framework


2. Understandings of how nature works


3. A design approach


 


This unique combination provides an ethical framework that is used to design regenerative systems at all scales – from home and garden to community, farm and bioregions.


The word ‘permaculture’ comes originally from ‘permanent agriculture‘ and ‘permanent culture‘ – it is about living lightly on the planet, and making sure that we can sustain human activities for many generations to come, in harmony with nature.


Permanence is not about everything staying the same. It is about stability, about deepening soils and cleaner water, thriving communities in self-reliant regions, biodiverse agriculture, and social justice, peace and abundance.


 


The introductory course at HHP offers a great opportunity to find out more about Permaculture. You’ll learn the ethics and principles whilst also learning about design, observation and practical examples in the wonderful setting of HHP.


 


Places are limited. The cost of the 2 day course is just £80 (but subsidies are available – please enquire).
