If you already enjoy or would like to grow food, design systems, live a sustainable lifestyle, meet others who share similar ethics, then Permaculture offers a chance to learn how principles and systems can help you change your lifestyle and produce more of your own food.
Taught by Niels Corfield, Permaculture Designer and Teacher and supported by Rachel Hammond, Founder of Incredible Edible Oxford, the course will be run over 7 weekends starting in September 2017.
The dates for the course will be as follows:
Topics covered will include design, buildings, woodland, garden and farm scale growing, integrated crops/animals, economics, communities and much more. Teaching will take place at various sites and projects across the City, celebrating community and growing projects with various themes.
Please note that accommodation and food are not included in the price of this course, but in the spirit of permaculture we will recommend bring and share lunches.
Please note, you will still receive your permaculture design certificate if you miss two days or one weekend of the course.
Places are limited. To book onto the course, please complete the form by following this link: http://bit.ly/2tdGmao

The South Oxford Farmers and Community Market is a weekly market selling ethically-produced local, seasonaland/or organic food and non-food goods. ‘Local’ means produced within a 30-mile radius of Oxford: ‘produced’ means containing a significant quantity of local ingredients and labour.The market is held in South Oxford Community Centre every Sundays from 9.30am to 12pm.
Making food shopping a much more personal experience!
Come this sunday and meet our vendors!
However big or small your bike-related issues are, get yourself down to our open workshop. We’ve got a fully stocked community tool chest (so you don’t have to spend a fortune on a tool you’ll use twice), lots of lovely bike stands and friendly mechanics to give you a hand.
We keep a stock of all the parts that wear out regularly and we also sell secondhand parts, so if you’re looking for a deal (or something slightly rare), we might have just the thing!
We bring you local, ethical and delicious fresh produce every week from our market stall at Summertown Farmers Market just outside the dew drop inn. We work with local, growers, farmers and producers to collect the best food the county has to offer and bring it right to your local area. We stock fresh fruit and veg from a selection of local and organic farms, brownies from Barefoot Kitchen, apple juice from Waterperry gardens, organic, free-range eggs from FAI farms in Wytham and more. Visit us to see what’s new this week.
We meet every Sunday afternoon to garden together, share a cup of tea and cake, learn about growing and take home fresh fruit and veg.
In the darker months of the year (Nov-Apr) we meet from 12-4pm on Sundays and when the days are longer (May-Oct) we meet from 1-5pm on Sundays and from 5-8pm on Wednesdays.
Our garden is free to access and we welcome people of all levels of experience to share the space in an inclusive and supportive environment.
Please bring (washed) apple and clean glass screw-top wine or drink bottles. Cost: £1 per pressing (large basket of apples), pasteurising 30p per bottle.
Bring it along to the friendly Fix It group at Bullingdon Community Centre, every Tuesday 10-12 noon (except school holidays) and we’ll have at helping you fix it or do it for you if we can. Free drinks and biscuits as well.
