"Permaculture is the design of regenerative, self-sustaining and resilient natural systems that fulfil human needs like food, shelter, health, social, cultural and psychological needs whilst acknowledging and providing for the needs of all species within our ecosystem and caring for the Earth.”
This is a rather special course! Design a sustainable life for you, your family and your community with our urban permaculture design course in central London. With the collaboration of Eco Solutions and Father Nature, we are very pleased to announce this 12 day Pdc (permaculture design certificate) course, with lead teacher Joshua Gomez and special guest teacher Graham Bell. We will be delving deep into all aspects of permaculture, while giving special focus to finding urban solutions and giving each participant the opportunity to design for themselves a regeneratively greener and more ecologically and economically abundant future. Running both Saturdays and Sundays every weekend from the 27th of April till the 2nd of June at Myatt's field park.
The course involves 12 teaching days plus added optional practical days for people who want to come along during any of the week days and get your hands dirty and as we learn through the practical effort of establishing community demonstration gardens. This course will be modular, so people that don't necessarily want to do the full PDC, are still welcome to come along for a day or weekend.

Why is the price on a sliding scale? To Put both the ethics of fair share and people care into practice, we have made this course's vital knowledge and learning accessible to all by making it on a sliding scale. Making it equitable, means that those of you who can afford to pay a little more are actually making this course available for those of a lesser income. We greatly appreciate your contribution and all excess proceeds that do not cover both venue and teaching costs from this course will go into a fund for further subsidizing low income participants on other courses and into the future development of community garden projects.
If you can't afford any of these don't let that stop your learning, come and volunteer to get your hands dirty at one of our mid week dig-ins and learn about urban permaculture the practical way. Email us to fine out more.
