  • Aranya


    Completing his Diploma in Applied Permaculture Design in 2003, Aranya started teaching the following year. He discovered this made his heart sing, so he made it his main focus. Since 2004 he has taught over 80 two-week design courses, something he has no intention of stopping. He feels that it's a privilege to have the opportunity to teach "something that can make a real difference in all our lives".
    Aranya is also excited about new ways in which permaculture thinking can help us, developing new courses on using its principles to help us design for optimising our health and creating ethical livelihoods.
    In the spring of 2012 Permanent Publications published his first book 'Permaculture Design - a Step-by-Step Guide', which evolved from a set of design course worksheets. He also writes occasionally for magazines and from time to time shares interesting items on his blog. Aranya is currently writing a second book, about a subject he’s especially fascinated by, the application of systems thinking and patterns in permaculture design.

Full fee £750 - including food, accommodation*, tuition, handouts, materials and certificate.
There is an early-bird discount (£675 all inclusive) for those who book by 16th March.
We are happy to offer a concessionary rate for full time students (£400 all inclusive), and a family rate by agreement.
Different options available (all included in price) - choose whichever you prefer:
  • Beds in indoor accommodation (in single-sex shared spaces) in either the cabin, the static caravan or the yurt. These are allocated on a first come, first served basis.
  • Camping - plenty of space - for those who prefer it and once all indoor options are filled.
