Kilmartin House Museum’s 8th Permaculture Course will begin with an introductory day on 18th June 2011. The course is the longest running and most established permaculture course in Scotland, with students last year travelling from as far afield as North Queensferry, and even Cambridge, to attend. The Museum’s course is one of only two available in Scotland.
The Course consists of five modules, during which students get to grips with the ethics, principles and tools of permaculture and prepare their own design projects culminating in a short presentation. There are various site visits during the course including a weekend stay at Barmaddy Farm House by Dalavich without electricity and David Blair’s inspirational site at Tighnabruaich. The landscape and history surrounding the museum also acts as a valuable teaching aid.
The Introductory day is designed to help students ensure Permaculture is for them before they embark on the full design course. The Introductory day runs from 10am to 4pm at Kilmartin House Museum in Kilmartin and costs £30. If you wish to book please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01546 510278.
