Permaculture is about working with nature to make a better world for us all. By studying patterns in the natural world, we can derive for ourselves a set of guiding principles. Permaculture design uses these principles to develop integrated systems to provide for our needs of food, shelter, energy and community in ways that are healthy and efficient. Through permaculture design we can improve the quality and productivity of our individual lives, our society and our environment.
Permaculture has an ethical basis:
- Earthcare - enabling all life systems to continue and increase
- Peoplecare - enabling access to the resources people need for a good quality of life
- Fairshare - voluntary limits to population and consumption; to share resources for Earthcare and Peoplecare

This course will be lead by Hannah Thoroughgood, an experienced permaculture teacher and co-founder of HEAP, the East Anglian Permaculture group (full biography here).
