2024 Courses & Workshops

Permaculture is a natural design science mimicking the patterns of nature. It can be used to help build regenerative and resilient landscapes and communities.

 

It is a solutions based, systems thinking, design process which can help you to adapt to and build resilience for changes in the natural and social ecosystems.

We are working in collaboration with Northaw Community Orchard to deliver a 2-day Introduction to Permaculture course. You will learn how to use permaculture design in your garden and home. You will discover the holistic approach permaculture offers, and have a chance to work on a practical design of your choice, incorporating the permaculture techniques.

Our new course is being designed to support our Permaculture and Mental Health initiative.

 

How do we move away from an 'I' mindset towards a narrative of 'WE'? How can we establish a culture of shared self care, where we feel supported and are less inclined to want to seek comfort in unnecessary behaviours or patterns, which are not only destructive to us, but also to the earth.

We look at the importance of peer support networks and how to use them to strengthen community and collective mental wellbeing. Before we can do this, we need to learn how to build our own mental resilience.

Introduction to Permaculture - Online/On demand

This course will give you an holistic overview of the basic theory and practical application of how permaculture can be used in what you do. We will show you how to use permaculture design in your garden as a pretext to how you can use social permaculture to support your own emotional wellbeing and build connections in your community. We will be sharing tools for individual and community resilience.

​The course is realtime and includes some optional home practice activities, which support the sessions and group work. This helps you to become more familiar with permaculture and how to apply it to your individual setting. It will also support the sessions themselves as part of the reflection process.

The course runs for 2 hours a week for 9 weeks. There will be guest tutors to add diversity to the sessions.

Testimonials

About our online courses:

"Thanks millions for your amazing and inspiring teaching lovely people"

Laura - 2021 course participant

"I took the Introduction to Permaculture Course with Wyld Edges and absolutely loved it. I was brand new to permaculture and felt like I learned so much, it has really sparked what I know will be a lifelong interest. Wenderlynn and Iain also did a brilliant job of moving the course online during the pandemic - it was inspiring for the whole group to come together every week and take time to reflect on the natural world around us." Jess Jackson 2020 course participant

"It was a really interesting exercise and a good learning process to pick up on other ideas to develop from listening to others

visions. Also love the diversity that was covered and the different ways that permaculture can be applied."

Anne- Marie - 2020 design share session.

"I think it was a good mix between your explanations and examples... I think its a very good and balanced mix... I thought you were both very supportive and knowledgeable and I would recommend the course and the support given as an introduction to everyone..."

Ellie - 2021 course participant

"The exchange of what we take away from the lesson is a really great ending I think again for each of us to verbalise what we take away and might apply in the week/use for a project and it brings everyone together again."
