Patrick Whitefield Associates was founded by our namesake, author of The Earth Care Manual over 25 years ago. Patrick’s aim was to be ‘part of the solution, not part of the problem.’ In this spirit we continue to run courses in his unique practical, nature-based style at venues all over the UK and further afield. Our courses incorporate the full spectrum of skills needed for self-reliance and community resilience including essential communication skills and observation and connection with nature. Our venues include well-known permaculture centres Ragmans Lane Farm and The Sustainability Centre. We also offer a consultation and design service. We have a popular blog on our website packed with helpful information and ‘How To’ articles and make contributions to publications such as Permaculture Magazine and The Land Magazine. Please see our website for more details.
