This course is designed to introduce Permaculture principles but with an emphasis on supporting participants with designing their own homes/gardens.
About the Tutor:
I first came across Permaculture back in the late 1980’s, being fortunate enough to meet one of the first designers working in this country. I found the subject full of common sense ideas which immediately inspired me to apply some of the principles in my own life. I had already started gardening out of a desire to grow healthy organic food for myself, at a time when there wasn’t much of it available for sale in the shops and this proved to be a good place for me to start applying some of these new ideas.
