Permaculture Design is an ethical approach to planning and creating more sustainable ways of living. Its focus is on thoughtful arrangement of elements on a site for best functionality, efficient resource use, maximum resource production and minimum energy inputs! It also offers a holistic way of thinking and seeing the world around us as completely interconnected, as such it is used in many contexts – education, community, health, land stewardship etc.

This 1 day workshop will be based mainly on land based application of Permaculture design, it will offer a pragmatic introduction to the what and the how of Permaculture; an overview of the main concepts, principles and patterns involved and how to use them. It will be of interest to anyone wanting to understand the basics of Permaculture, those looking to use Permaculture to design and ecologically manage a piece of land at any scale, be it garden, farm, community or commercial, and those who work (or play!) in related areas that could integrate this approach such as landscaping, gardening, farming, waste management.

We will focus on getting to grips with the foundational principles, where they come from, how they are applied to a project and some key design considerations that together will enable you to see your project from a Permaculture perspective; to think in patterns, to best place elements in your project for maximum efficiency, to make the most of natural resources, and to work with, rather than against, nature. It will be interactive, light-hearted, informative and applicable.

Our Big workshop weekend offers a range of full-day courses to choose from. You can take a single course or two courses over the weekend. Our courses always get positive feedback from participants and you will benefit from on hand expert tutors with years of experience in their field. The weekend format also offers you the opportunity to meet like-minded people and to spend some time in our gardens, orchards and woodlands in beautiful East Clare.
