The problem is the solution: How permaculture can help you overcome your schools challenges
Lusi Alderslowe, Children in Permaculture Coordinator
Discussing the permaculture principle, ‘the problem is the solution’, we will give some excellent examples of how permaculture has helped schools to overcome challenges. For example, if the problem is that food is untended and unharvested in the school holidays, a design which includes perennial food plants will enable you to have a spring harvest and an autumn harvest, leaving the ground well-mulched in June reduces weeding in the autumn.
Who should attend?
School and nursery teachers, kindergarten teachers, forest school leaders, parents, and anyone interested in the education of children
