Going further

We are excited to announce that the 2016 Spring into Action! Permaculture Design Course will be hosted at furtherfield commons in Finsbury Park. We feel a lot of commonality with the furtherfield vision:

'We believe that through creative and critical engagement with practices in art and technology people are inspired and enabled to become active co-creators of their cultures and societies.'

A vision that sits well alongside our action-orientated approach to permaculture design.

The Spring into Action! Full Permaculture Design Course will take place in Spring 2016
fortnightly over six weekends:

12 - 13 March
26 - 27 March
9 - 10 April
23 - 24 April
7 - 8 May
21 - 22 May

Last weekend on our current Design 4 Action! course Marc Garrett introduced us to some of the work constellated with furtherfield - intersections where art, technology and social change meet. We also asked 'Can Britain feed itself?'; thought about, with and like fungi with a session on mycorrhiza; considered edges, hedges and windbreaks; and did some scenario thinking - four-dimensional design with a look towards the future(s).
