How do I Become a LAND Centre?
There are two pathways to becoming a LAND Centre.
The first is an independent pathway, where you have an initial assessment with a LAND tutor, work through the criteria, create your site design and have a final assessment when you feel that you are ready to become a LAND Centre. If you are already an experienced permaculture practitioner, with a well established site and are confident that you are pretty much there already, this may be the best pathway for you.
The second pathway is our new LAND Learner programme which is currently under development. This twelve month programme will include a monthly, LAND tutor led online session, where we will work through each of the LAND criteria. There will also be supporting resources, a handbook, designs and activities to do between sessions and you will be allocated a peer learning guild to keep you on track. This pathway is particularly suitable for people who want additional support to develop their demonstration site, or who wish to do a deep dive into creating a resilient, comprehensively designed permaculture project. We will let you know once the programme is ready to start.
We are updating the process to become a LAND Centre. Get in touch with our Project & LAND Coordinator if you are interested in becoming a LAND Centre.
