A NEW course at Bicton College aims to inspire and educate local people to minimise their impact on the environment.

The Permaculture Design Course is led by George Sobol, who has taught the principles of Permaculture internationally, and will run over six weekends starting on August 31 and ending December 14.

Permaculture is a way of living that has a lower impact on the environment and aims to create more sustainable communities by developing efficient and productive ways of living.

A spokesperson for Bicton Rural Academy said:

"By thinking carefully about the way we use our resources - food, energy, shelter and other material and non-material needs - it is possible to get much more out of life by using less. It all comes down to how serious you are about making a difference, how much you care about the environment and about the impact that we, as humans, make on our surroundings. If you do care, and you do want to try and minimise your impact then maybe this Permaculture course is for you."

For more information about the Permaculture Design Course contact Bethan at Bicton Rural Academy on 01395 562437, email blp@bictonruralacademy or visit www.bictonruralacademy.co.uk/courses/environment.
