Spread over one full weekend and 12 Wednesday evenings at the Cathedral, this PDC is designed to be accessible to those who can’t make the time for a 2 week residential but covers the same subject matter. This is our second course in conjunction with Chester Dioceses and final bookings and payments are direct to Claire Henderson Davies, the artist in residence at the Cathedral.
Working in a 1000 year old building in conjunction with the Anglican church certainly puts an interesting spin and provides a stunning setting to study the application of ecological principles and at first they seemed an unlikely partner. However the Church readily admits they fall short on rising up to their environmental responsibilities and seek new partners to work with to extend the range of their remit and action on the ground. With climate change, food insecurity, collapsing ecosystems and diversity and increasing war around the world for the remaining fossil fuels something big has to change, and that is our whole outlook and relationship to this living earth we are all part of.
Price £350. All inclusive. Includes certification and registration with the Permaculture Association. 12 evenings with supper at the Cathedral plus a full weekend fieldtrip away in North Wales visiting permaculture projects and community initiatives.
The course kicks off with a weekend away at Llanfyllin in North Wales to take part in a community apple day, visit a community food forest and see a range of community initiatives and co-operatives Sector39 have had in developing over the years.
You will stay in renovated old Workhouse building, also managed and owned by the local community as a resource and centre for local creativity, enjoy wonderful whole food cooked by us and served with our own sour dough and pickles.
A perfect way to start your learning journey.
