Spring Into Action 2016 – Permaculture design in London – LAST PLACES AVAILABLE!

Last weekend 15 new design thinkers were unleashed on the world! End of course presentations of Designs for Active Community Transformation In Our Neighbourhoods from the students of our last London-based PDC have included the redevelopment of a community food growing space in Camden; a dog, person and wildlife friendly small garden in Bethnal Green; a sensory garden for an elderly grandfather; a proposal for turning the anti-social practice of peeing in public places into a pro-social way of generating power and fertility for the borough of Hackney; a forest garden in the south of France; a food growing, skill sharing and time bank project supporting refugees at Furtherfield Commons in Finsbury Park; kinesthetic sculptures as wind generators; a proposal to turn Clissold Park in Stoke Newington into a healing garden based on Ayurvedic medicine and sacred geometry principles and many more!

It's been an amazing experience and a real joy to work with such a positive group of creative people. Our next course begins very soon at Furtherfield Commons in Finsbury Park, an exciting new partnership exploring some highly creative edges, and is getting near to selling out, so if you want to be a part of generating more solutions based thinking for sustainable and regenerative futures, sign up now to ensure your place!!!
