Permaculture for a sustainable life at Penryn College

As part of the continuing development of students understanding of horticulture and sustainable techniques the growing team were taken on a Permaculture workshop working alongside our permaculture expert Nick Waitz.  They first went to visit a local garden for inspiration from nature looking at how plants in the wild used permaculture techniques naturally in a woodland environment.

The students then put these principals into practice on the farm by planting around the apple trees with a range of plants that complement each other and all that produce fruit or flowers that can be eaten.  Hopefully over the next few years we will see a real difference not only in the growth of the trees but the look of our orchard as well.
