Basic understanding of permaculture
– Permaculture principles: Overviewing what permaculture design is and the philosophy and ethics behind permaculture.
– Concepts and themes in design: begin to understand the components – stability, diversity, order, chaos, yields, resources, time sequences- that are the strength of our systems. It will become clear why nature is our model and how the interactions with the natural systems create resilience.
– Methods of designing: You learn to analyse what components should go into a design, how natural systems can and should be included. And where these things are best positioned on the site as a holistically engaged environment.
– Pattern understanding: Patterns are recurring forms of events that we can find all around us in nature. Understanding these basic underlying patterns of natural phenomena is a powerful tool for design.
– Trees & tree energy transaction: You will learn about the complex interactions between trees and their physical environment.
– Water and aquaculture: Water is the one that connects it all, in this section you will learn about specific strategies of water conservation and control for the humid climate of Ireland, and for specific land form sections.
– Soil: Soil is a precious resource and we will learn about repairing soils healthy food web through various ways of stimulating the soil food web with techniques like compost extract, bio-fertilizers, and chop and drop.
– Earthwork: Earthworks set the framework for garden bed or food forest creation and is inextricably tied to harnessing the energetic exchange of water in the landscape.
– Social permaculture: Here we will go into the social element of permaculture and how we can create local communities moving towards a sustainable future.
Each of the chapters will give you a basic introduction of Bill Morrison permaculture design manual.

‘Permaculture gardening goes far beyond ‘landscaping’ or maintaining a vegetable plot. In an urban context it works to integrate the abundant resources of people and community, city ‘waste’ streams, unique micro-climates, and more, with growing healthy and nutritious food locally, creating art and celebration, and building community in ways that are environmentally regenerative- providing refuge for pollinators (and humans!), contributing to air quality, responsibly collecting and using rainwater and so on, and on top of that, are beautiful too!’ It will be useful to anyone with an active interest in environmental and productive urban gardening or landscaping in a private or community garden and in public spaces.
