I know that some of you have been asking when you can get a copy of the book I spent the last year writing. Well, it’s called ‘Earth Care, People Care and Fair Share in Education: The Children in Permaculture Manual’ or the ‘CiP Manual’ for short! You can READ IT FOR FREE online, or if you prefer to have a paper copy in your hand – you can BUY ONE HERE!
It explores how the ethics and principles of permaculture can be applied to engaging children in education, an innovative, holistic pedagogy, curriculum, around 400 activities, several session plans and even top tips for child-friendly events.
It has been received wonderfully with many practitioners giving very positive feedback – including Richard Louv (author of ‘Last Child in the Woods: Saving Our Children from Nature-Deficit Disorder.’), Alistair McIntosh (Scottish author of Soil and Soul and other books), Rosemary Morrow (one of the pioneering women in permaculture), Janet Millington (authors of Outdoor Classrooms), Roseanna Hunt (primary school teacher), Beryl Laroque (grandmother), and lots of other permaculturists, teachers, parents and forest school leaders.
Having just typed up all the feedback from the 2017 permaculture design course, I’m really pleased with how much the students enjoyed the course, and how much they learnt. I copied and pasted all their testimonials onto a new page so you can see for yourself- check it out here. Bookings are now open for the 2018 Design course, it’s looking set to be another fantastic year with lots of fun, dynamic activities and great site visits. For more information, please see here.
