In the making for over two years and drawing on the amazing work and research of many UK and International educators, our mini course series allows you to study bite sized courses in your own time, from your own home.

This course is Module 1 of the full Designing for Resilience, Foundations in Permaculture course.
Here is what some of our students have to say about the full course:
'Very interesting and useful the perspective of applying the principles to several situations, including our own life design, rather than just to land based designs. Also, great practical examples!'
'A huge amount of rich and interesting content to absorb but it all makes perfect sense! I have made a lot of notes and will come back and learn more... It is good to get a thorough grounding in permaculture principles at this stage so we can see how they are applied in practice'.
