Introduction to Permaculture one day workshop, 15th November 2014, Southend on Sea

Led by: Graham Burnet (Dip Perm Des)

Details; Held at the newly set up Epicquest alternative school in Southend, this one day workshop can either be considered as a ‘stand alone’ introduction to Permaculture ethics, principles and design, or else can be a lead-in to the more in depth full 72 hour Permaculture Design Course. The day will be led by experienced permaculture teacher Graham Burnett (author and illustrator of ‘Permaculture- a Beginners Guide’ and ‘The Vegan Book of Permaculture’, former Trustee of the Permaculture Association (Britain) and holder of the Diploma in Permaculture Design). Epicquest is an exciting new educational project being set up by the One Love Foundation in order to provide alternative learning opportunities for children and adults in the Southend on Sea area. One of the outcomes of today’s workshop will be to generate design ideas for the future development of the space and its grounds.

Hi folks, I’ve spent some time today talking to Chay and Jules EpicQuest Southend about the EpicQuest education project see http://epicquest.co.uk/ They have invited me to run some Permaculture Design Skills workshops to help think about ideas for their new centre in Wallis Ave, Southend on Sea.

I’m proposing running 2 (maybe more) weekend workshops in September and October which will provide a basic grounding in Permaculture Ethics, Principles and Design Skills, facilitated by an experienced permaculture designer (me!), with a focus on creating ’emergent’ design ideas for the project by pooling our collective skills, creativity and expertise to come up with realistic and workable design proposals.

Focus will be on generating ideas for the building, as well as garden and growing areas and ‘wild’ spaces around the grounds.

Participation will be donation to help cover my time and facilitation (suggest £10 – £30 quid for each 2 days workshop depending on what you can afford/think reasonable).

No previous knowledge of Permaculture is necessary, this would however be an excellent opportunity for those who have previously done a Permaculture Course (eg, a Permaculture Introductory Course or full 72 Hour Permaculture Design Course, or working towards their Diploma in Applied Permaculture Design) to revise and brush up their design skills, or produce work for their design portfolio.

Who would be interested in participating?
