About the workshop

Permaculture Principles become especially valuable and inspiring when used to design our groups, learning environments and social systems. When groups work effectively and harmoniously together towards the aims and purpose of the group, our world and the environment benefits and so does each individual. Robin has pioneered Social Permaculture around the world and brings her passion for creating deep change through effective, dynamic group work and co-operation between groups. Join this unique and creative exploration and experience of Social Permaculture and Dynamic Group Culture in this inaugural weekend adventure. Care for yourself, your people and your groups by attending and sharing the gifts back to your community.
