With support from the National Lottery Community Fund, Abundant Borders is seeking to appoint a suitably qualified person to provide a Permaculture Foundation Course (PFC), for up to 15 participants.
The PFC consists of six modules, full details in the tender document, ideally completed one module per week over a six-week period. Participants should learn the principles of permaculture, with an emphasis on creating food forests. The PFC should give a level of understanding that can be built on by trainees who want to go on to train for the Permaculture Design Certificate. It is expected that the trainer appointed by Abundant Borders to deliver the PFC will hold a permaculture diploma.
The course is predominantly field based, with an emphasis on learning while doing. Some learning will take place inside, in an informal, workshop style setting while the majority will take place (weather permitting), at the Community Garden being created at the Abundant Borders Community Garden, Eyemouth Allotments.
Full details are in the tender document, and any additional questions can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org
