Unfortunately this project was not successful.

We build green, productive and resilient spaces in towns and cities. This campaign is to offer subsidised places for community growing volunteers on an up and coming Permaculture Design Course. The intention is to reward and invest in key volunteers who have contributed to community growing projects recently. We offer these courses at very competitive prices, however they are still out of reach of those on low income, who are often the same people who contribute most to these projects. We will seek to maximise the impact of your donation by using it to empower key community garden project volunteers

Permaculture design for community growers

This is our first attempt at Crowdfunding and we are hoping to find creative ways to get more people directly invovled in building sustainable solutions using permaculture design. This is a bottom up community led process that focusses on using natural and local resources to build responses to the pressing global problems of climate chanage and resource depletion that we are all facing. Here is a short video that gives a real flavour of what permaculture is all about.. enjoy!
