Part one runs from 30th June to 4th July. Part two follows after a few months: from the 8th to 12th September. The course is also available on a modular basis (the days are integrated with our other courses in the region, so you can "mix 'n' match" the days you attend).
The venue is at jack's House - a new eco-building of strawbale construction at the Worsley Hall allotments in Wigan, home of the Wigan Allotment network.
The course is open to all, regardless of any previous experience or literacy levels. You do not need any previous experience of permaculture. An "Introduction to Permaculture." is, as usual included in the course. There is no paperwork, no bureaucracy, just a chance to learn from people with in-depth experience of enterprise and community projects. We will look at the application of permaculture design to all situations, urban and rural alike.,
The course will be led by Angus Soutar with support from friendly visiting teachers.
This is a "no frills" course with fees for the complete course at £240. For more details follow the links to the Northern School website: http://northernschool.info/wigan.
