Please log in to buy tickets.

This event is the third in our AberGreen Permaculture skills training series. Come learn about the principles of permaculture and how they can be used in designing spaces for sustainable food growing. No previous gardening experience is required, however, we would urge those who completed the first and second training events in this series to register for this event, to take full advantage of the series! A certificate of completion will be provided.

If you missed the first two sessions of this series, we invite you to still sign up for this event, but you should email alan.carter@abdn.ac.uk before attending this course so information from previous sessions can be sent to you.

What will I learn about at this event: Forest gardening is an ecological food growing method that reproduces the structure of a forest using all edible plants. We will meet in the Chaplaincy at 3.30pm for a visit to a nearby example.

These skills can help you think about your community space, such as the Secret Garden on campus!

The Secret Garden is the community garden for students and staff of the University of Aberdeen.

As a gardening volunteer who completes this training series, you could be eligible for the University's STAR Award scheme. Click here to find out how: https://www.abdn.ac.uk/careers/skills-attributes/star-award.php

The event series will finish off with a visit to a local sustainability community.

Those completing all three courses will be acknowledged by a certificate of competition provided by AUSA AberGreen.
