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.

We're very excited to be hosting a Dragon Dreaming introductory course on the 22nd and 23rd of October!

Dragon Dreaming is a systemic methodology for development and collaborative management of projects, and offers dynamic methods, processes and a philosophy for the realization of creative, collaborative and sustainable projects and organizations.

We're very lucky to have Xaba and Daniel leading this course, in addition to the workshop being offered a low cost to ensure it is accessible to all.

Any interested participants are invited to check out the event page below, and send over any queries they might have about the workshop.

Hope to see you all there!

Leeds Permaculture Network and Global Justice Now are co-hosting an event this coming Monday looking at the status of food sovereignty movements around the world, and how they've been campaigning against the 'work' of Monsanto.

As part of the 3 speakers at the event our very own Andy Goldring will be speaking about the status of the food sovereignty movement here in Leeds. We'll also hear from Farida Ahkter, a Bangladeshi seed sovereignty campaigner and founder of biggest collection of community seed banks in the world, and Dan Iles, a food sovereignty campaigner with Global Justice Now.

Visit the event page for a link to reserve a (free!) ticket. Refreshments available too 🙂
