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 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.
