Welcome to my portfolio for my Diploma in Applied Permaculture Design!
I'm Jenni, and I came across permaculture many, many years ago. I completed my two week Permaculture Design Course with Patrick Whitefield at Ragman's Lane Farm in the autumn of 2001.
I didn't sign up for the diploma for another thirteen years. I thought about it a lot in that time, but couldn't think of a good reason to go ahead, and it wasn't until a friend said 'you could have done it five times in the amount of time you've been talking about it!' that I finally signed up in 2014.
This portfolio charts my journey from those initial days of designing the tiny garden of our terraced house, through our move to eleven acres of land in the Peak District national park.
I've learned so much and met so many wonderful people, and I hope this portfolio reflects how grateful I am for the diploma process and all who are involved in it.
The document below is a review of my relevant activities and my reflections on the diploma process.
