"When we design, we are always building for future floods, future fires, future droughts, and planting a tree a few inches tall that will be future forest giants, throw future shadows. Future populations will need future soils and forest resources, shelter, security. So somebody needs to range ahead in time, scout out the next century. We are not daydreaming. We are time scouts." Bill Mollison (1928- 2016)
The Northern School of Permaculture newsletter has finally been born! We have been conceiving it for five years and are very pleased to be welcoming this in to our community. We aspire to make it better by design. We want to hear your feedback so please do get in touch and let us know what you enjoy or would like to see more of.
We are currently establishing a programme of Urban Gardening and Practical Permaculture skills which we will be advertising shortly. These courses and workshops will aim to combine theory with practice and offer individuals the chance to enhance and develop their skill sets.
Each and every workshop will offer a theoretical knowledge base, followed by working together to implement a designed application using each particular technique in selected permaculture sites in Lancashire and Cheshire.
Here is a list of some of the workshops we have in mind. We would really appreciate it if you would register your potential interest in advance, so we can schedule the programme accordingly. We are also keen for our community members to make suggestions or offer ideas as to other potential workshops that we can offer in the future. Urban Gardening and Practical Permaculture Skills
