There are still a few places available on Graham Burnett’s Introduction to Permaculture weekend at Dial House in Essex, but book fast to avoid disappointment!

Dates: Sat 6 – Sun 7 September 2014

Venue: Dial House, North Weald, near Epping, Essex

Led by: Graham Burnet (Dip Perm Des)

Details: Held at the idyllic setting of Dial House in West Essex, home to the political punk band CRASS, this residential weekend 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 weekend is led by experienced permaculture teacher Graham Burnett (author and illustrator of ‘Permaculture- a Beginners Guide’, Trustee of the Permaculture Association (Britain) and holder of the Diploma in Permaculture Design).

Accommodation: Camping in the Dial House gardens. You are welcome to arrive on the Friday evening (after 18.00 please) to put up your tent and get settled plus join in for a bit of a social session. There may be VERY LIMITED places to stay inside the house; please contact Graham for details or to enquire about availability.

Now they have one grown on the plot and they are in need of funds again. [Read more...]
