Over 14 immersive days we will enter deep into the world of permaculture and explore all of the different topics and practices that can help you on your way to changing your life based on the intelligence, patterns and principles found in the natural world. The curriculum of the course includes the living landscape, soil health and the soil food web, food growing and plant propagation, plant identification and uses, trees and perennial food systems, natural building and retrofitting, food preservation and fermentation, social and community based permaculture and much more- all based on the curriculum set by the UK Permaculture Association.

Throughout the course we will be guiding you through a full design process that will give you a solid grounding in using the permaculture ethics, principles and design tools in a range of contexts, and towards the end of the course you will complete a group design project of your own, giving you the practice of putting all you have learnt into action. You will receive a PDC certificate on completion of the course which is recognised and respected around the world.

We will be taking part in lots of practical activities across the site to integrate and apply the theoretical learning, and we will be making the most of this fantastic area by visiting different local sites to see some of the best examples of permaculture in action, including a day trip to Glasbren. We will also be making the most of the rich natural environment of the fantastic national park coastline, ancient SSSi woodland and other local habitats.
Permaculture covers not only land-based design but personal, social and community design too. Although this course is firmly rooted in the land and we share our specialisations around land based living, it’s relevant to everyone no matter how or where you live, whether it’s rural or urban, with limited or abundant resources, and with or without access to land.

“I waited 13 years to do this course of which during that time I was sad that I hadn’t done it. Now I realise that the universe brought me here at just the right time and I’m so happy I did it with you and no other teacher. Thank you so much, you changed my life and my heart”  Pixie, 2023 course participant

Our courses offer a relaxed, rounded and grounded learning experience, finding a balance between brain food and group work, discussion and reflection and practical, hands-on experience. We craft a safe, held, gentle learning environment, rooted firmly in the land and the living world, encouraging all learning styles and finding space for every voice. It will be a blend of practical knowledge, deep nature-based wisdom and joyful connection – accessible to newcomers, demystifying permaculture, whilst also offering wisdom and nuggets of gold for those more experienced.

Rather than ‘gardeners’ or ‘designers’, let’s think of ourselves as players in a bigger ecosystem, part of nature, trying to make a positive impact, restorative disturbances and applying a regenerative mindset to how we go about meeting our needs as individuals and as communities.
