Introduction to Permaculture with Angie Polkey
Your permaculture teacher, Angie Polkey has decades of experience in using ecological and permaculture thinking and applying it in practice in some wide-ranging fields of activity. Angie is an established teacher with experience of engaging diverse groups of adults in accessible and dynamic ways. This is a short but wide-ranging introduction to permaculture as an approach to designing sustainable ways of living and working. Running over 6 weeks, there will home study of around 1-2 hours per week that you can fit in at your convenience, plus weekly group sessions online of about 30-40 minutes.
The course will give a grounding in the core elements of a permaculture design including the ethical framework or values that underpin it, the principles from nature that it draws upon, and a design framework for applying them. You will be encouraged to explore issues that matter to your own life and work and will be given practical examples of permaculture in action.
This course can be taken as a foundation module (along with an accompanying blended online course on Soils which is in prep) for the Permaculture Design Certificate, which is taught in Wales by Angie and co-teacher Alice Gray, and accredited by the Permaculture Association of Britain.
