About the Event
Have you ever wondered what permaculture actually is, and more importantly, how it can impact you and your life? Join us for a taster session where you will hear from Muck & Magic's Emily and Shila as they talk you through the basic concepts and give you a flavour of what a more in-depth course could look like.
We’ll explore how the ‘advanced common sense’ of permaculture can connect us with many small but mighty ways to bring nature-friendly solutions to life in our homes, gardens and communities.
You’ll hear about the core ethics and principles of permaculture and glimpse how you can use these in many situations – with people as well as plants. You can apply permaculture thinking whether your growing space is a windowbox or hillside! Sessions from Muck & Magic are suitable for all, from newbie gardeners to experienced social entrepreneurs. They combine the practical and playful so expect to leave bubbling with hope and ideas of how to design more sustainability – and smiles - in to life.
“Though the problems of the world are increasingly complex, the solutions remain embarrassingly simple.” - Bill Mollison one of the founder’s of modern permaculture.
After the talk with Emily and Shila, you will enjoy a fresh, farm to fork style lunch with vegetables from the CSA.
Ticket price includes a set lunch, tea/coffee & cake.
About the Speakers
Muck & Magic are a partnership between Emily and Shila – friends who met on a permaculture design course and quickly realised that with their combined skills, experience, joy and energy they could offer some quality (northern!) muck and some sparkly magic to help the world around them grow. Emily is a sustainability consultant and permaculture teacher with a background in Ecology and Leadership. Shila is a freelance consultant and coach delivering community focused projects.
We like to take photos and occasionally videos of our events to use on our website and social media, please let us know if you do not want to be photographed.
