January 30, 2017

What can you expect? 
 

Friday night is a meet and greet evening and everybody brings a finger supper to share.  Please bring your drinks along.  I will provide cutlery and cups and glasses.
 

 

Saturday morning is an early start – 7am

 

Starting with a lovely quiet yoga stretch session of 15 minutes and then the following will be covered:

 

Permaculture Design Principles including Zoning and Sectors; Compost Making and Soil Life; Sheet Mulching; Vermiculture; Chicken Tractors; Water Strategies and Irrigation including Swales; Planting different beds/areas; Nursery Work including Sowing, Transplanting, Soil Mixtures and propagating with cuttings;  Seed Saving and Storage; Pasture and Orchard management.

 

Compost making:

 

Chicken tractor is moved….

 

It is stressed that this is an introduction course that explores all the above-mentioned areas from a permaculture point of view. It is impossible to go into great depth with all the areas – instead, the course is designed to capture your interest, provide a solid base to start off from and tie you into a support network for the journey ahead.

 

Tea and a snack is served at about 11am  and lunch around 1pm
