A one day introductory workshop hosted by Davie Philip of Cultivate and Bruce Darrell of Feasta, both based at Cloughjordan Ecovillage.
Using an active learning approach this workshop will give an introduction to permaculture design principles and outline how they can be applied to your own life and work.
Who should come to this workshop?
This course is for anyone curious to find out more about Permaculture and trying to decide whether to take a more extensive course. The one day session is also a 'stand alone' introduction to Permaculture ethics, principles and design, and can act as a perfect lead-in to the more in-depth Permaculture Design Course (FETAC L5) run in Cloughjordan over 3 weekends or the 10-day intensive, residential Permaculture Design Certificate Course (accredited by the UK Permaculture Association)
Ecological design for living and working - run over 2 weekends
Apply your permaculture design skills to an advanced, practical, applicable or otherwise 'useful' design.
This course is a follow-on for learners who have completed the Permaculture Design module, to deepen their knowledge and experience of permaculture. Taking Action Learning and David Holmgrem's Permaculture - Principles as core elements, the module provides the opportunity to develop an awareness of a deeper understanding of permaculture principles and their application to wider areas. Including site visits and practical sessions which merge theory with practice to bring permaculture in to your own life.
Taken in combination with the the FETAC L5 accredited Permaculture Design Course, these two courses can lead to a full UK Permaculture Design Certificate. The Weekend Permaculture and Applied Permaculture Courses are delivered by NICER Training, the FETAC accredited provider, in partnership with Cultivate.
