Who are we?

Northern School Permaculture short events

The Northern School of Permaculture is a guild of permaculture practitioners - designers, students, teacher and supporters. All our permaculture design associates and course tutors have demonstrated their competence through their "hands on" activities  and are accredited through apprenticeship "in the field". We can all trace our pedigree directly back to Bill Mollison and his original Permaculture Institute. We strive to maintain, and improve on, that historic high standard in permaculture design work.

Here are some of the people working to bring our courses and events to you.
