permaculture teacher training
“The future of our planet depends on a change of consciousness, in which the people and the resources of the natural world are no longer taken for granted and exploited without considering long term impacts. Supporting children from early childhood to develop a sensitive, compassionate and cooperative relationship with each other and the natural world is a crucial step in generating this new consciousness” (p1, Alderslowe, Amus, Deshaies 2018).


This two day training course is the finale of the three year European ‘Children in Permaculture’ project in which best practice has been shared across the continent from Finland, Italy, Scotland and Romania. 

Price: £120 for two days. 15 subsidised places for school/nursery teachers at only £20 donation per person. Cost includes lunch and a copy of the brand new book ‘Earth Care, People Care and Fair Share in Education: The Children in Permaculture Manual’ by Lusi Alderslowe, Gaye Amus and Denise Deshaies.

Who is this course for?

People working with children aged 3-12 years, such as school, nursery and kindergarten teachers, as well as those working in non-formal settings such as after-school or out-of-school club leaders (e.g. scout leaders), parents (whether natural, foster, adoptive or grandparents) and others who are aware of the importance of their role in children’s education.

I am currently organising more upcoming courses and workshops for both children and adults starting from late summer 2018, in both the UK and in Europe. I have some really exciting projects coming together, if anybody else is also interested in collaborating or co-creating please get in touch with me through my contact page.
