Permaculture Design Warwick is seeking expressions of interest from people wishing to complete an extended delivery Permaculture Design Certificate Course, to be held in the Warwick area in 2012.
The course has been designed to allow for people who, for various reasons, cannot commit to a single 14 day
traditional course delivery.
The course will be delivered over a series of alternate weekends, through a three month period.

Permaculture (permanent agriculture) is the conscious design and maintenance of agriculturally productive ecosystems which have the diversity, stability, and resilience of natural ecosystems. It is the harmonious integration of landscape and people providing their food, energy, shelter, and other material and non-material needs in a sustainable way. Without permanent agriculture there is no possibility of a stable social order.
Permaculture design is a system of assembling conceptual, material, and strategic components in a pattern which functions to benefit life in all its forms.
The philosophy behind permaculture is one of working with, rather than against, nature; of protracted and thoughtful observation rather than protracted and thoughtless action; of looking at systems in all their functions, rather than asking only one yield of them; and allowing systems to demonstrate their own evolutions.
