Introduction to Permaculture Design Course
Using whole-systems thinking, permaculture is the conscious design and maintenance of productive ecosystems based on applying principles that reflect the diversity, stability and resilience of nature.
This 20 hour introductory course will take participants through the foundations and theory of permaculture, work through some of the design exercises and apply the concepts to a collaborative design project for the Strathmore High School Community Greenhouse space.
The outcome of the course will be a co-created permaculture design for future installation in the space.
