Invitation to tender

Thanks to funding from Awards for All we are looking to appoint a suitably qualified person to provide a Permaculture Foundation Course, for up to 15 participants.

The course consists of ten modules, ideally completed one module per week over a ten-week period, beginning in April 2018. Participants should learn the principles of permaculture, with an emphasis on creating food forests. The course 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 course will hold a permaculture diploma.

The course will be predominantly field based, with an emphasis on learning while doing. Some learning will take place in an informal, workshop style setting in The Salvation Army Citadel, Croft Road, Hawick while the majority will take place (weather permitting), at the Community Garden being created behind the Salvation Army Community Store, High Street, Hawick.

Full details can be found here.
