High lights from our successful funding application
Permaculture Kernow is a newly formed Association with its main focus on the education of individuals, including those from deprived communities and ecosystems, in all aspects of permaculture.
Our goal is to give these individuals the skills and knowledge necessary to create permaculture designs & implement projects within their community.
In time they can even create careers for themselves that are both ecologically sound and economically profitable because they will regenerate the local ecosystems and create natural resource abundance at the same time.
The feasibility of achieving our aim of establishing strong permaculture groups has been demonstrated through 32 people signing up to become members within two communities, through doing talks and screening a permaculture film.
All of our work has been designed based on the feedback from pilot sessions which involved a total of 57 people. The regions we intend to focus upon are Cornwall and Devon.
Here is some of the feedback we have received.
“As a mother, living on a low wage, (though working hard). I try to feed my family as healthily as I can but I can’t afford organic food. I gained so much from Permaculture Kernow’s inspiring and educational talk. I would so appreciate some training and workshops. I’d love to help create a community garden, to grow more of our own foods.”
“Very informative and given ideas of small and easy things to do to get started. Liked the idea of using nature to turn the problem into the solution”
“Really interesting talk and looking forward to putting some of this into practice.”
