Design a Sustainable Future for you, your family, your community!

Design a sustainable life for you, your family or your community with our urban permaculture design course in central London at Myatt's Fields Park in Angell Town, between Brixton and Camberwell.

In a collaboration with Joshua Gomez of Eco Solutions, we are very pleased to announce this twelve day PDC (Permaculture Design Certificate) course. The course will be lead by fully qualified permaculture teacher Joshua Gomez, with special guest teacher Graham Bell, and we will be delving deep into all aspects of permaculture. Our special focus will be finding sustainable solutions to urban living and giving each participant the opportunity to design for themselves a greener, ecologically and economically abundant future. Subjects we will cover include:

  • urban natural growing and sustainable living solutions
  • accessing local resources for your projects
  • biotech solutions for everyday life
  • growing food to eat or sell
  • edible forest gardening
  • tree grafting or plant care knowledge
  • composting and aquaponics
  • minimising waste and maximising output
  • how to run a sustainable business or community project.

When: Saturdays and Sundays every weekend from Saturday 27th April to Sunday 2nd June 2019 from 9am-4.30pm.

Where:  The offices and grounds of Myatt's field park, Cormont Road, SE5 9RA.

Qualification: On completion of the full course we will award you an internationally recognised permaculture design certificate, approved by the UK Permaculture Association.

Course content: The course involves twelve teaching days plus added optional 'practical days' during week days. These 'practical day' are for if you want to come along and get your hands dirty as we learn through the practical effort of establishing community demonstration gardens. We have broken the course down into modules so you don't necessarily have to do the full twelve day PDC course. We are happy if you just want to attend a weekend or even a single day of the course. To find about the course modules in detail see here.

How to book: To confirm your interest in taking part in the course, please fill in the online form here. Joshua from Eco Solutions will then be in contact via email to discuss your booking, including the number of course days you wish to attend and payment.

Cost of the Course: The price for the full 12 day course varies from £900 (Full cost) to as little as £200 (Full Concession) depending on your income. The cost of a single weekend is £160 (Full cost) to £50 (Full Concession), and a single day is £80 (Full cost) to £30 (Full Concession). To find out more, see here. * If you can't afford to pay at all for the course itself, please don't let that stop your learning. You are welcome to volunteer at one of the course's mid week 'dig-ins' where you can learn about urban permaculture the practical way.
