Permaculture Design Course,
Finsbury Park, fortnightly starting March 2020


Design 4 ACTION – London’s Permaculture Design Course offers positive design for your life, your community and your world by empowering the genius inside all of us! Running in Spring 2020 at Furtherfield Commons in Finsbury Park, this course is about regenerative learning, enabling individuals, organisations and communities to come together over six weekends to create empowering solutions to the real world challenges we are all facing in these times of change. Adapted from the Permaculture Association (Britain)’s PDC core curriculum, this is a person-centred, fun, lively and inclusive course, exploring and utilising concepts such as Systems Thinking, Holistic Design, Community Empowerment, ‘Whole Person’ Health, Skill Sharing, Critical Thinking, Appreciative Inquiry, Right Livelihoods and much more.
The format is participatory and dynamic using diverse visual, audio and kinesthetic learning methods such as individual and group work, games, problem solving, discussion, observation, field trips, practical activities, lectures and slideshows. This course is hosted and organised in partnership with Furtherfield. This is a unique opportunity to learn about Permaculture with  instructor Graham Burnett, author of The Vegan Book of Permaculture and experienced Permaculture Designer.

What folk have said about previous courses by Spiralseed
“I can totally recommend this. I’ve done 2 courses under Graham’s tutelage and have thoroughly enjoyed each one. The second changed my life (for the better) and gave me the courage to ditch a a job that was wearing me down, in favour of self-employment that has left me happier than ever before as an adult. The Introduction to Permaculture course I did opened my eyes and broadened my outlook. Worth it for that alone, but when you add in a weekend of fun with like-minded people – priceless!”
“Graham’s teaching style is open, non-ego, relaxed, positive and BRILLIANT – A natural educator, thank you!”
“If anyone is considering this course I would really recommend it”
“The course was terrific and was paced in such a way as to ensure maximum benefit”
“A wonderful weekend”
“I’ve done a lot of training courses and Graham is by far one of the best trainers I’ve had”
“I believe that we all left richer for the experience and, speaking for myself, happier and more hopeful. I am now just looking for an excuse to return, because the whole experience was just too good to have only once”
