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 to know what on earth Permaculture is about? Or are you interested in finding out more before committing to a full Design Course? If so then LPN's 'Introduction to Permaculture' weekend course will be perfect for you!

During the weekend you will cover the basics of permaculture, exploring the ethical framework and the breadth of areas of human activity that permaculture thinking is relevant to. You'll also look in detail at a few essential principles of permaculture and how to practically apply them, how to do some simple observation and analysis exercises, and work together on a simple design.

The course takes place on the 8th and 9th of October at Hollybush Conversation Centre in Kirkstall. The cost of the course is run on a sliding scale from £40-140, dependent on income.
