Introduction to Permaculture with David Arnold

Permaculture is so much more than a way to garden, grow food or even design a space, it’s an immersive and considered way of living life; how we connect with others, the lens we place over challenges , the way we respond to feedback, our connection to the natural world. 

It’s an individual journey that is for each of us to interpret in our own way. While there are absolute skills to absorb; practical, functional, sensible skills, permaculture is not a formula that can be applied, rather its a shift in the way we live.

With over four decades of global renown, the movement has settled into its place with evidence based ‘proof in the pudding’ which has allowed Permaculture a considerable growth surge in the last 10 years.

Undertaking a full 14 day permaculture design certificate course might seem like a big first step. So we are offering a one day Introduction to Permaculture.

The Black Barn Farm one day introductory program has been designed to provide an overview of what Permaculture is while also sharing personal anecdotal stories about our individual journeys. It is interactive and immersive so also includes a farm tour which allows you to see active interpretations of each of the Permaculture principles. We will share a homegrown feast with you at lunchtime and provide much opportunity to ask as many questions as you need.

The day will be delivered by highly regarded Permaculture educator, David Arnold, founder of Murrnong Farm and supported by Charlie Showers and Jade Miles founders of Black Barn Farm.
