Schumacher Sustainable Horticulture Residency

Each year I teach Permaculture design to the horticulture students at the renowned Schumacher College in Dartington. The course is a 6 month practical residency in Sustainable Horticulture practices, which guides students through the growing season in the beautiful gardens on campus.

Schumacher College has an international reputation for its holistic and systems approach to sustainability. We have been teaching sustainable horticulture for seven years, with nine acres of land (annual and perennial systems including a 5 acre agroforestry field) integrating food production with beauty, biodiversity and quiet spaces for contemplation. We adjoin Martin Crawford’s 21 year old forest garden(link is external) and are close to his research trials site. We are two miles from Totnes, home of the Transition Movement(link is external) and are part of the historic Dartington Hall Estate(link is external), with its beautiful listed gardens.’
