Opportunities within the UK

Permaculture Project Internship(s)

We're looking for a person or two people to come and get involved getting our project properly off the ground. Ideally you'll come and stay here for a while (a season, a year or whatever), working with an experienced Permaculturalist (Dip. Perm. Des.) and getting your PDC if you don't already have one; putting in the energy we're short of, learning lots and having the chance to start your own projects.

You'll definitely need a sense of humour and be prepared to start from scratch. If you might be interested then please email us.

Our project is located in West Wales.

12 week funded course tutor

Hello - My name is Carole and I manage a day opportunity project in Flintshire, North Wales for adults with learning disabilities.
I am almost sure that I have secured a grant to employ a permaculture tutor to run a funded course for us.
We are new to permaculture but would love to get more involved, learn and promote the principles in our everyday lives.

We are looking for an introduction to permaculture course that would be held on-site, particularly interested in no dig beds.

Please get in touch if you would like to discuss further.

Erw Fach, Capel Cynon, Ffostrasol, Ceredigion

I own 3.74 hectares of land at Capel Cynon, Ceredigion, and have
recently begun preparations to use it for permaculture, including
making it available for grazing at the right times each year. I am not
expert in the relevant matters, and am nearing 80 years old. I
therefore need enlightened help from totally honest people, who would
be granted the full profits from their activity in getting
permaculture going. As I am a pensioner the government is bound by its
own laws to keep me alive, so I do not need to profit from my own land
