Permaculture / Self Sufficiency Courses

Courses in Permaculture / Self Sufficiency: Permaculture/Self Sufficiency is fundamentally based on biological and ecological principles. Self sufficiency aims to create balanced, productive systems that provide for human needs, harmoniously combining the land with the people that live on it. Within a Permaculture system, work is kept to a minimum, “wastes” become resources, productivity and harvests increase, and environments are restored. Permaculture ethics can be applied to any environment, on any scale from dense urban settlements to individual homes, from farms to entire regions. We have courses which cover subjects from Healthy Buildings, Permaculture to Alternative Farming
