Permaculture is a practical system for sustainable living, based on observing principles and patterns in nature. By maximising relationships in living systems, permaculture has empowered people worldwide to develop dynamic, resilient projects that work with nature, rather than against it. Whatever scale or aspect of human living, whether the home and garden, community or congregation space, or one’s own life and career, permaculture can be applied to each situation.
This is an interactive taster day outlining permaculture and introducing you to some of the fundamental tools and principles that can be used to design sustainable, resilient projects.
The course content will include:
- What is permaculture?
- Introduction to permaculture ethics and principles
- Nature observation
- Social permaculture
- Permaculture as a design system
- Applying permaculture
- Next steps

To support a rich learning space, we are limiting participant numbers to a small group size. If you know you want to participate on the course, we recommend you book as soon as possible in order to secure your place.
Transport: While we may be able to connect up participants in advance, please be responsible for your own travelling to the farm. If coming by train, bus 25A has worked well before – 10-15 mins walk from Oxford train station. (A bus journey planner is here). Alternatively, you might want to take a taxi from the train station. Closer to time, we will communicate with all registered participants, so you can choose to meet one another at the station for a joint ride to the farm (about 8 miles or 25 minutes), thus sharing travel costs!
