What you will learn
Week 1 & 2
: During the first two weeks you’ll learn how to analyse a suburban property using a permaculture approach to identify and map not just the space but the various elements and influences that need to be considered. Each participant will finish these two workshops with a detailed map of your own property as a basis for your permaculture design.

Between the first and final sessions, you'll have opportunities to attend a range of PSN workshops on topics such as plants, soil, water, animals & structures. These will provide you with some of the key knowledge when planning what goes into your own design.

Week 3 & 4: In the final two weeks you’ll create permaculture design for your own suburban space and a plan for implementing the changes.
