While the government has ended legal restrictions, Brighton Permaculture Trust will continue to take a cautious approach and follow the permaculture ethic of People Care. We are intent on providing a safe environment for everyone, respecting the needs of all participants and their contacts.
Brighton & Hove has a high and rising Covid case rate. We recommend everyone follows the advice on the Brighton & Hove Council website.
Our strategy through to summer 2022 will be to continue to deliver most of our activities outdoors or online.
We are still requesting people to maintain distancing of at least one metre at all our outdoor activities.
We strongly recommend that participants in our all our face-to-face activities do regular lateral flow tests.
If you are attending a course that involves spending time indoors we will require you to do a lateral flow test the day before the course.
You must wear a face mask when inside any of our venues and maintain one metre distancing indoors.
The Self-building an Earthship in Europe virtual course is entirely online.
We are adapting many of our other courses to be delivered outside or via a mix of Zoom sessions and outdoor practical sessions.
We have suspended booking on many of our in-person weekend courses for the time being. Please contact us via the relevant course page to be added to a waiting list. We will re-open bookings when we have confirmed course dates, letting the people on the waiting list book first.
If you have a course booking you need to discuss please contact us
We are planning an orchard tour at Home Farm Orchard at Stanmer when the apples are ready for harvest later this year. Please sign up to our newsletter to hear about this and any other events.
