Welcome to LPN

Leeds Permaculture Network is a group of people interested in learning about & using permaculture to transform our local environment & living spaces to make a better world for all using nature as our inspiration. Find out more about permaculture here.

There is no joining fee and no official membership of Leeds Permaculture Network; we are an open network, and everyone is welcome to participate.

Feel free to come along to one of our monthly socials, a project work day, or if you want to learn more you could sign up for a course. We run a variety of courses, from a one day brief introduction to an 8-weekend Permaculture Design Course.

Please add local and regional permaculture events to the calendar on this web site. You can also join our emailing list, follow us on Twitter or do the Facebook thing.

Do you want some old carpet for your allotment or garden? Or some of it could be laid again inside possibly. So if anyone would like them for a project or any other reason please contact Chris Verney on chrisverney@gmail.com. They are in Armley and can be collected anytime before 28th November!

If you are interested in community development, neighbourhood planning, etc - read on!
We’re organising a 'Planning for Real' training session in Leeds - This is a community planning method which involves the use of a 3D model of a neighbourhood/space, amongst other tools and ideas. See http://www.planningforreal.org.uk/what-is-pfr/
We’ve been offered a bespoke 1 day course covering various aspects of PfR for around £90 per head (compared to £450 for attending their 2 day training course!)
The proposed date is Monday 30th November and it would be a full day course taking place at Swarthmore Education Centre. We need to confirm numbers before THIS THURSDAY to know if it is viable!
To express your interest send us a message or email naomi@hydeparksource.org - and of course, please share! smile emoticon

Big thanks to James from Leeds Coppice Workers and Claire from Blackbark for last night's ace social all about woodland management from a permaculture perspective. Great to hear the inspiring and important stuff they're up to restoring and managing local woodlands as well as learning about how they organise themselves as worker co-operatives. Join us next month on Wed 2nd Dec for our final social of 2015 - more deets to follow!
