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.

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.

"Thank you for caring ,teaching and sharing! I love the different elements you brought into this course besides the actual theory, it connects and brings out the bigger picture more clearly!" Debby PDC course participant.
"Really interesting talk and looking forward to putting some of this into practice."
"Very informative and given ideas of small and easy things to do to get started. Liked the idea of using nature to turn the problem into the solution"
" I really enjoyed the course! I feel it had the right balance between the theory, practical but also the issues that are not that touchable. This was my favorite part: how you encouraged us to see the nature, to look for her support, learn from her. You have so much practical experience, but you are also very humble. It was a pleasure to learn from you. You are very generous with your knowledge and I hope I will do the right things to pass this beautiful skills forward, so you can be proud of the results! Thank you!" Nicoleta PDC course participant. PDC course participant.

I really liked the way you approached it, gave us freedom, and let everyone be his or herself. It was really nice to see how you managed to make individual development and bonding as a group go hand in hand. I think the course was really inspiring and it gave me a lot of valuable knowledge and energy for the rest of my life. Keep on seeding the seeds, in the garden but also in peoples heads." - Jeff, PDC course participant.
