Inspiration to run Permaculture courses Lea Harrison ran a teacher training course and advanced design course in our house in 1990. This started most of the UK permaculture teaching. This was a great course. Later I participated in a creative teaching course with Skye. This really inspired me and has been the stimulant for my teaching technique. Whole body learning enables the permaculture principles to become an integral part of your life. My great friend and co teacher Mill brings his knowledge and skill of growing food for many years and living a thoughtful and simpler life. He always adds his wealth of knowledge and enthusiasm for life to our joint courses.
