Feedback from a recent PDC:

Steve
I can say without hesitation that the Permaculture Design Course was my best ever educational experience. Your commitment, passion, intelligence, knowledge and spontaneity instilled in me the permaculture ethos that inspires me to apply this knowledge to save us from us. The course was an intense and magical experience helped by the superb healthy cuisine, the kindness of Ian, scintillating guest lectures and poignent field trips. I shall also not forget the sense of community encapsulated by the haunting tones of the tipi orchestra. 
I would willingly press gang anyone into going on your Permaculture Design Course! ..................... Ashley
