Design Your Own Permaculture Garden
I have been getting lots of enquiries for Permaculture garden design – too many to be able to take on! Where possible I pass on enquiries to other designers and gardeners.
For those of you who are interested (even a little bit?!) in designing your own garden, or simply applying a Permaculture approach to your plot, I am planning to repeat a course that I ran a couple of years ago – ‘Design Your Own Permaculture Garden’.
This will be a 2 day course, based in Strokestown, Roscommon. I am taking expressions of interest and I will set a date when I see what the interest is.
It will cover simple and effective steps to get started on creating multifunctional gardens that provide the things we need and the things we love: Healthy food, water, natural medicine, biodiversity, nature beauty, play and community.
Design skills – overall layout, windbreaks & shelterbelts, plant guilds & choices, plant and element placement, forest gardening…. & more!
Practical skills (depending on time of year) – plant propagation, planting, composting, mulching….. & more!
Email me to add yourself to the notification list and I’ll be in touch once we set a date! [email protected]
Would be very interested in this course as I to grow my own food in a sustainable manner using permaculture techniques, but as I am only beginning I feel this course would be a great introduction to help me on the path of creating a more sustainable life working with nature. Please let me know when you have a start date. Looking forward to it!
Sorry Patrick I have only just seen your comment. I will run this course in the autumn, and I have added your name and email address to a notification list so I can let you know when I have details.
Hi Hannah :)
I hope all is well with you! I’m wondering if you are thinking of running another ‘Design Your Own Permaculture Garden’ course in the future? I’d love to do it when it’s next running!
Hi Sinead, apologies I just found these comments somewhat late!! I’ll be running this course in the autumn and I’ll let you know when I have details.
