An event every week that begins at 6:30pm on Wednesday, repeating until 8th March 2017
Permaculture is a design system based on the observation of natural systems; it is the application of the principles of ecology to create genuinely sustainable outcomes. Permaculture draws from nature, traditional practices and contemporary thinking to create a solutions and function based approach to design. This subject is potentially of interest for everyone as it applies to food, energy, waste, soil, water, housing, local economies, people and enterprise.
This permaculture design course is a carefully constructed educational experience, including elements of both theory and practice, that provides the knowledge and tools to live on this planet in a harmonious and restorative way.
The course will be led by Steve Jones, a permaculture teacher and designer from Sector39, which is recognised by the Permaculture Association (Britain), and which will issue internationally recognised certificates of completion to the course participants.
29 and 30 October 2016

After the field trip, the course will continue with twelve 3-hour evening sessions in the Cloister Room at Chester Cathedral, 6.30 to 9.30pm (with a soup & sandwich supper included) on the following Wednesdays:
These evening sessions will be supported by homework reading, watching key videos and making notes on progress.
