Permaculture Designer, Architect + Meditator
A collaborative, practical and hands on course. Showcasing the ways in which we can use Permaculture ethics and principles to create a Tiny Home.

About your Mentor
About your Mentor
ARB Architect, Edward Dale-Harris believes we must look beyond sustainability and move towards regeneration, we have to change our destructive behaviour and do much better to protect nature as citizens of the earth and stewards of the land. When we heal the land, we also heal ourselves. We need more ‘self-directed learning’ to build self reliance, wellness and confidence.

Ed realises the importance of a mindfulness approach to regenerative design, using nature as our teacher, and valuing a collective and collaborative decision-making process for a grounded and successful project.

Ed qualified as an Architect in 2017 and has gained many awards for his design, commitment, vision, compassion, charity work, environm...
