WinACC (Winchester Action on Climate Change), with the support of the Permaculture
Association, is holding a free introductory taster event on the ethics and principles of
permaculture on Saturday 21 April.

Permaculture is an ethics-based design framework, rooted in an understanding of nature,
with principles that can be used to design regenerative systems at all scales - from home
and garden to community, farm, business and bioregion.

With an emphasis on sustainability, the word 'permaculture' comes originally from
'permanent agriculture' and 'permanent culture', it is about living lightly on the planet, and
making sure that we can sustain human activities for many generations to come, in harmony
with nature.

The event will provide examples of how permaculture can help us meet the pressing
challenge of climate change and create sustainable low carbon communities.
WinACC’s Executive Director, and Permaculture Ambassador, Tom Brenan, said:
“Permaculture provides a set of design principles which can be applied in a variety of
circumstances and situations. Rooted in a core set of ethics and influenced by traditional
practices and modern learning, permaculture provides an adaptable framework for
designing and developing low carbon solutions”.

The free event will take place on Saturday 21 April 2018 from 10.30am to 12.15pm in Room
SAB 202, St Alphege Building (near The Stripe) at the University of Winchester, Sparkford
Road, Winchester SO22 4NR. Refreshments will be available from 10am.
