When I was asked if I’d be interested in joining a permaculture course for three months in Andalusia, I have to admit I didn’t have a clue what ‘permaculture’ was. I mean sure, I had heard of it but what did it actually mean? And I wasn’t the only clueless one. When I proudly announced to my friends and family I would be going on a ‘permaculture’ course (after of course doing my research), they too were a little jaded on what it meant. So for clarification, allow me to explain in layman terms.
