Introduction to Permaculture in Glasgow

Introduction to Permaculture
Summary information

Join us for this exciting opportunity to learn more about permaculture in Glasgow. Permaculture is a design system based on ethics and principles deduced from observing nature. During the course you will find out more about the permaculture ethics and principles and how they are applied in nature and in a garden, and see some other examples of their application. You will also be invited to participate in a practical activity, such as composting.

Why join this course:
*Permaculture is solutions-focussed, so you can learn something which you can then apply to your work, life, garden or projects.
*You will meet other people who are interested in sustainability.
*It is the first module of the full Permaculture Design Course, which is the standard 72 hour course, internationally recognised as the core introduction to permaculture.
*The teacher is on the Permaculture Association's certifying teachers register.
*The vegetarian pot luck lunches are always a highlight of the course!

Permaculture is a holistic design system for sustainable living, creating systems for minimum effort and maximum effect. The introduction is the first module of the full design course and gives the basic grounding in what permaculture is and how it can be applied. It includes an overview of topics that are covered in more detail during the rest of the course. In general we are indoors in the morning and outdoors in the afternoon. Normally the first afternoon is spent doing observations and the second afternoon is a practical activity, such as composting.
