The Permaculture Design Course at High Heathercombe

Written by Caroline Aitken on . Posted in Uncategorized

Each April I co-teach a PDC with a brilliant teacher called Aranya at the High Heathercombe centre on Dartmoor. This course was created by Aranya and Mel Lamb who runs the centre, and has a very different flavour to PDC I teach at Ragmans with Matt Dunwell, and to the courses I teach alone or with other tutors. Permaculture is hard to define and means different things to different people, and one of the great joys of teaching with different people at different venues is exploring all the varying perspectives on it. In this short film we see some great perspectives on Heathercombe itself and hear from some of the students, as well as from Aranya and I. So, what is permaculture?
