Introduction to Permaculture one day workshop, 15th November 2014, Southend on Sea

Led by: Graham Burnet (Dip Perm Des)

Details; Held at the newly set up Epicquest alternative school in Southend, this one day workshop can either be considered as a ‘stand alone’ introduction to Permaculture ethics, principles and design, or else can be a lead-in to the more in depth full 72 hour Permaculture Design Course. The day will be led by experienced permaculture teacher Graham Burnett (author and illustrator of ‘Permaculture- a Beginners Guide’ and ‘The Vegan Book of Permaculture’, former Trustee of the Permaculture Association (Britain) and holder of the Diploma in Permaculture Design). Epicquest is an exciting new educational project being set up by the One Love Foundation in order to provide alternative learning opportunities for children and adults in the Southend on Sea area. One of the outcomes of today’s workshop will be to generate design ideas for the future development of the space and its grounds.
