Radical Self-Education
Interested in permaculture, but don't know how to get more hands-on? Put off by the cost and commitment of full design courses? Want to find a space to explore, share and learn about all different aspects of this weird thing 'permaculture'? The Permaculture Community Classroom is the answer to all of these! All you need is to come with an idea, a resource or a topic of discussion which you would like to share. If you don't have one, just come with an open mind and willingness to learn. Whatever comes up is what we will talk about and whoever is there are the right people. It also depends a lot on what came up in the previous session. These sessions are intended for discussion and learning, so debate and (friendly!) disagreement are encouraged. Some prior knowledge/experience of permaculture is great in order to delve deeper into the topics we come across, but all levels from ignorant to expert will be warmly welcomed. ------------------------ Why join us? Well, so far at The Permaculture Community Classroom we have collected a library of over 30 permaculture-relevant books and half a dozen DVDs, two full harddrives (2TBs!!!) of permaculture-relevant films, documents and pdf books and lots of enthusiastic, practical and smiley folk! And the resources just keep growing and growing, free for all to use of course. This event is free to attend however we pay a small fee to rent the space we use and we are always keen to add to our library so donations are gratefully accepted but not required.

What we're about

This is a group for anyone interested in meeting new like minded people, sharing and implementing new ideas, self-educating and finding ways to create a more sustainable future. We organise film screenings, discussion groups, workshops, community gardening sessions, upcycling workshops and whatever else the members are up to! We have also started the Permaculture Community Classroom (PCC), held every two weeks at Edinburgh and Lothians Regional Equality Council (ELREC). The PCC is a project of participatory education meaning that the attendees decide what they want to learn, and how they want to learn it!

All welcome! This group was created to bring together environmental enthusiasts regardless of ethnic background, ability, age, sex, sexual orientation, religion, and family situation.
