About the event

Have you ever been interested in permaculture? 

Are you keen to learn how to grow food in your back garden?

Come on a camping adventure from our expert, David Holberton, and you will enjoy nature in a whole new way.

Permaculture doesn’t just take place on the land; It starts in the mind with how your think about the space you live in. Come and join us for a grounding in mind, body and land. Feel renewed, meet likeminded people and get connected. The beauty of this workshop is that you will get a guided tour of a working permaculture property where you will see all the processes in action.

About David

David Holberton brings a wealth of knowledge and experience about Permaculture; designing sustainable ecological systems, that serve numerous functions such as; providing an abundant source of food and clean water, preserving and establishing niches for native flora and fauna, processing waste products back into nutrient rich soils, natural building, and bringing community together.

After completing his Permaculture Design Certificate in 2014, David began working in the construction industry as an Earthworks operator.

Being able to master construction machinery was necessary to make fundamental changes in the landscape that eventually become the skeletal structure in the body of sustainable systems.

David has spent time in both the urban and rural landscapes, bringing together a synthesis of strategies that work in both areas addressing the core fundamental concepts of sustainability.

The nature of the human spirit is particularly relevant and part of David's focus will illuminate the sometimes challenging aspects of dealing with our inner landscape, and what implications this has in dealing with our current world, and overcoming self limiting beliefs.
