Making a change person by person and garden by garden.

Permaculture Kernow is a newly formed Community interest company with a mission to educate individuals on the

regeneration of natural resources and the local environment.

We focus much of our efforts on those from deprived communities and ecosystems, teaching them all aspects of permaculture and enabling them to make real positive changes in their own lives and those of their community.

So whether you are looking to join one of our courses, become a member and help out for our free dig-ins, pledge land for the creation of a community garden or just read about what we are up to and maybe support our efforts by making a donation.

All are welcome to Permaculture Kernow!

Or maybe you have already done a permaculture design course with us,

if so, feel free to support us by giving your feedback on how you felt it went!

This is the final design presentation for three students of our Permaculture Design course. They are presenting a design for an educational community garden that we will be creating next to Millbrook school. It will act as a school educational garden for the children, and is also open to the community when the school is closed. After this presentation, the students were awarded the permaculture design certificate.
