Ecological Homecoming

Befriending your Place and all the Life around you
Running from March 2024 until February 2025

Ecological Homecoming can be taken as a standalone online training, and it is included as part of the Bringing It Home journey.

16 evening calls introducing outdoor activities to help you to connect and root more deeply to your place, and the flow of the seasons and the rest of life going through it. 

Based on the 8 Shields model of nature connection and culture repair, this yearlong journey supports you to use tried and tested core routines of deep nature connection practices where you live.

Designing for Life

May 11th/12th 2024

Designing for Life

This brand new weekend is hosted on the farm where I live in Dartmoor. It will introduce the powerful tools and processes used in Permaculture, within the context of creating more habitat and space for wildlife to thrive around us in our gardens, towns, farms and green spaces whilst meeting our own needs. 

It serves as both a full introduction to Permaculture Design and an inspiring exploration of the things we can do to foster the natural processes, complexity and diversity that we and the rest of life both need to endure and flourish at this time.
