Permaculture & Sustainable Food Workshop

🕓 30 mins - 3 hours 🪙 From €150 🏠 Client venue/Online


Workshop Description

This Permaculture & Sustainable Food workshop for Community Groups, Libraries and Family Resource Centers introduces participants to permaculture and regenerative farming. We will learn about practical methods to improve soil health, reduce waste, improve yield and result in healthier harvests. No previous experience necessary. Learning Outcomes: • Understand the different systems used to grow food and their impacts. • Explore innovations and advancements of regenerative farming. • Learn useful and practical ways to grow food and garden that replicate processes from nature. At our workshops, we offer a range of duration and delivery options to suit the needs of your group. Whether you prefer in-person sessions or online workshops, each option offers unique advantages. For instance, a 30-minute online workshop provides a solid foundation, covering the basics effectively. However, opting for a longer, 2-hour workshop enables deeper learning and allows us to accomplish more together. Choosing the extended option not only enriches your learning experience but also ensures we can delve into more advanced topics and incorporate more interactive activities, resulting in greater value. So, for a more comprehensive and in-depth session, we encourage you to consider the longer duration options.

Otherwise, we recommend you opt for a 2 hour workshop or less, which can be delivered indoors or outdoors without the need for a community garden location.
