WELCOME TO THE BIG HOUSE & ELEMENTAL PERMACULTURE
Permaculture Design Course
Held over four long weekend workshops in 2017, our permaculture course focuses on the home garden and provides a unique approach so you can develop a deeper understanding of Permaculture theory through wonderful teaching and by engaging a ‘hands on’ approach by working in the garden.
Each weekend starts on Thursday evening and carries through to Sunday Afternoon, providing plenty of time for teaching, practical application, great discussion, and some relaxation. We also offer evening sessions with motivating films while we share the tasty nourishment provided by the Permaculture network.
