Connect with the Permaculture eXchange crew for two days of permaculture design. When you leave this course you’ll be full of enthusiasm, ready to roll up your sleeves and get stuck into all those permaculture projects around the yard or farm. You’ll also be in a prime position to explore and research other aspects of permaculture design that may interest you.This introductory level permaculture course could be just what you’re looking for if you’re wanting to; live more sustainably, reduce household bills, grow some of your own food, integrate chooks, worms or bees into your garden, or build more sustainable community networks like food co-operatives or community garden groups in your local area.

This two-day course focusses on practical implementation as well as the theory behind permaculture- the history, principles, design skills and the things that make ‘permaculture’ happen.Topics include; what is permaculture? soil, climate, zone planning and sector analysis, suburban strategies, kitchen gardens and food forests. We take a look at what you can do in a suburban backyard or small-scale acreage property, and cover solutions for renters and people living in apartments with only a balcony to garden on too!
