Introduction to Permaculture - Weekend Workshop
Lackan Cottage Farm is a 6 acre smallholding featuring natural building, eco-renovation, renewable energies, permaculture gardens, forest gardens, regenerated & newly planted native coppice woodlands, waste water treatment systems, rainwater harvesting, small livestock & horses. A practical, lived-in permaculture demonstration site.
In this Introduction to Permaculture weekend workshop we will focus on how to design and set up and maintain home and small-holding scale systems which productively cycle energy around a site.
We will consider Water, Fertility, Sun, Wind, Human & Animal energy from the perspective of there being "No such thing as waste" (It's just stuff in the wrong place! – formidable vegetable sound system)
So let's get our stuff in the right place! and arrange our spaces to encourage energy to flow through the land/home/people-scapes efficiently, effectively and productively, maximising production & minimising environmental pollution.
Integrating: Land, Animals, People, Water Harvesting & use, Food production, Structures and Shelter,Woodlands, Renewable power and more...
Using: Permaculture ethics & design principles - a simple design process.
