Thanks for a lovely weekend! You have given me lots of food for thought and confidence to crack on with projects. Maria

It feels so good to be back at Applewood. This space continues to be a seedbed of learning - sorting seeds all over the place. And I will do everything I can to carry and plant as many seeds as I can. Sam

Truly inspirational. Really well paced with mix of indoor/outdoor, theory/practical. Feel equipped to make the next steps. Thank you so much!

Facilitators & Venue

The Venue
Applewood Permaculture Centre is a 20 acre smallholding. Looby and Chris are lucky to have this as their family home with their 2 daughters as well as a training centre. We have had the place since July 2016 so we are in the early days of observation and design ideas for setting this up as a demonstration centre. There are various teaching spaces, from heated yurt and barn space to outdoor marquee and open air. There are many diverse habitats here already; we have woodland, orchard, pasture, pool and gardens. Applewood is a tranquil sanctuary for wildlife and people alike. We are blessed with night times filled with owl hoots and immense starry skies that you’ll get to enjoy round an outside fire.
