The workshop will show how we can live more sustainably by growing our own food and supporting the resilience of our local community. It is for anyone interested in finding out more about permaculture and how to take that interest further. It will be a stand-alone introduction to permaculture ethics, principles and design.
The event will be hosted by Richard Webb who has held a diploma in permaculture teaching and design for 25 years and is accredited with the Permaculture Association UK. Richard has taught full permaculture design courses in Ireland (Cloughjordan) and Hong Kong and has taught permaculture for 15 years on the DIT MSc in Sustainable Development. Richard is also the co-ordinator of Bray Grow It Yourself.

Forest therapy walk through the ‘enchanted forest’. This will be a guided walk where we go through forest structure, ecology and management in relation to permaculture but more importantly experiencing the sensory aspects of nature and how they can benefit our health and well-being. It would involve some gentle walking, a forest mindfulness session and some barefoot walking depending on the weather.
This walk will only take place if enough people register and is a stand alone event.
