Permaculture Design Course West Norfolk: April – September

The fourth West Norfolk Permaculture Design Course is starting in April 2013 and will run for six weekend over six months at six inspiring West Norfolk venues. This course has been very popular for the last three years and is helping to build a strong permaculture community across Norfolk. 

This course provides an introduction to the design methods, tools, principles and ethics that underpin this sustainable design system. It is a unique opportunity to meet other people in the area who are exploring more sustainable ways of living and to visit some exciting projects already employing the principles of permaculture.

The first weekend (April 13/14) is an introduction and participants can come to this as a stand-alone weekend. For those who wish to explore further, there will be five additional weekends on 11/12 May, 8/9 June, 13/14 July, 10/11 August and 14/15 September. All those who complete the full course will receive a certificate and be able to continue on to do the permaculture  diploma if they wish. 

Details and information can be found on the Norfolk Permaculture web site at http://norfolkpermaculture.wordpress.com/. For more information e-mail westnorfolkpdc@gmail.com or call Ben on 01760 756029.
