“Permaculture is the design of regenerative, self-sustaining and resilient natural systems that fulfils all aspects of human needs, such as food, shelter, health, social, cultural and psychological needs whilst acknowledging and providing for the needs of all species within our ecosystem and caring for the Earth.”  Joshua Gomez,

Making a change person by person and garden by garden.

Permaculture Kernow is a newly formed Community interest company with a mission to educate individuals on the regeneration of natural resources and the local environment. 

 We focus much of our efforts on those from deprived communities and ecosystems, teaching them all aspects of permaculture and enabling them to make real positive change in their own lives and those of their community.

This is the final design presentation for three students of our Permaculture Design course. They are presenting a design for an educational community garden that we will be creating next to Millbrook school. It will act as a school educational garden for the children, and is also open to the community when the school is closed. After this presentation, the students were awarded the permaculture design certificate.
