About the event
Diggin' It is excited to be hosting an introductory course to Permaculture with Lusi Alderslowe on Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th February in Lochwinnoch. Permaculture is a holistic design system for sustainable living, creating systems for minimum effort and maximum effect. The introduction gives the basic grounding in what permaculture is and how it can be applied. Sessions will be a mixture of indoor and outdoor activities, normally the first afternoon is spent doing observations and the second afternoon is a practical activity, such as composting or building a bed.
- What is Permaculture?
- The Permaculture Ethics
