Permaculture Course

A great weekend was had down at Graceworks with the design students looking at:

Forest Gardens which you can find out more about on our projects pages.

We also looked at Regenerative Agriculture focusing strongly on building soils and restoring ecosystems as the foundation to regenerating production, and communities.  The importance of restoring watercourses – and the water cycle as a whole – is recognised, along with mineral cycles and biodiversity, as foundations for a sustainable permanent agro-ecological production base.  At the same time dependency on external inputs is minimised, and we look to improve livestock health and quality of produce, and increase farm profitability - with the most efficient use of the manpower available.

Great day anyone who hasn't done the Permaculture Design Course should drop us a line and find out when the next course is running.
