Permaculture Design Course (Bury)
This full Permaculture Design course, certificated internationally by the Permaculture Research Institute will run on one Saturday per month, starting on Saturday 16th February 2019. A full list of dates is available here. This course is also open on a modular basis.
The course will be held at the Manchester Road Community Arts Centre which is south of Bury Town Centre on the main road leading to Prestwich (North Manchester). This has good public transport links and is easily accessible from the M60 and M66 by car.
The course is open to all, regardless of any previous experience or literacy levels. We will follow the international guidelines to cover the course syllabus in full. Each person completing the course will get an internationally-recognised PDC certificate.
The content and teaching style is aimed at those wishing to apply permaculture in urban and sub-urban settings, as well as those in rural locations. The course content has a wide and flexible application, not only for home and garden design, but also for those wishing to apply the permaculture design techniques within their business or career. We aim to provide you with the tools to enhance and facilitate community-based projects of all kinds, including Transition Towns and Incredible Edible initiatives. Many of our students go on to set up permaculture-inspired initiatives of their own. You can read more about people who will benefit from the course.
The course will be led by Angus Soutar with support from visiting teachers. Angus has rich experience of guiding and implementing permaculture design in a variety of commercial settings. He is keen to share this growing body of knowledge during, and after, the life of this course.
