Another PDC wrapped up

Project: PermEco Inc.

Posted by Zaia Kendall about 10 years ago

We were sad but glad to see another batch of PDC graduates go… Sad, because we all had such a lovely time together, and glad because they were empowered and inspired, and ready to go back into the world and share Permaculture.

A lovely and very diverse group of students left us last weekend after the 2 week course here at PRI Sunshine Coast. Everyone got along really well and there was a great group bond. Feedback was very positive, and everyone felt inspired to take Permaculture further. Whether as a teacher, farmer, urban permaculturist or helping indigenous communities, we were very pleased to see everyone so excited to spread the Permaculture word…

Feedback from the students:

“I’m feeling inspired by the learning I’ve experienced and the connection and sharing with Tom and other students and kids. Felt like family. I’m feeling enthusiastic and empowered to take Permaculture Design to the next stage of my life., so I can share my knowledge with First Nation communities in the Kimberlies. Much gratitude.”

“Tom and Zaia are very welcoming. Tom has a very in depth knowledge of the topics and great practical experience. Chef was great! Food fresh from the garden, great to see it all in action!”

“Tom is a great teacher who passes on his vast knowledge in a practical and easy way. I reckon everyone should do a PDC!”

Miki’s birthday cake…

“It was wonderful! It’s great that Tom is so hands on and Zaia is organised. It was great to experience farm life and see a beautiful partnership / family life! Thank you so much!”

“I am enthusiastic about this life experience, and I’ll keep it alive in my daily life, trying one day to become a real Permie! Thank you!”

Lunch from the garden!!

“The course was great, so much info to take in. Each principle was backed up with examples, which was great.”

“I feel so great, I do not know how to explain. Meeting new friends and doing new things in the nicest environment, I’m the one who should ask, how do you feel!”

“Thanks so much for a thoroughly enjoyable and ultra informative PDC. The friendly atmosphere and passion for Permaculture created an infectious thirst for knowledge amongst the group. Good luck with your future projects, I hope I can be involved in one sometime further up the road.”

Yumm… Morning tea!

“Have enjoyed the course, the time structure was good, the indoor/outdoor classroom was very pleasant. Catering throughout the course has been excellent, everyone eating together was extremely rewarding in setting an example of Permaculture community. Tom’s teaching style was easy going and relaxed, making it an excellent learning experience. Thanks!”

We have now started a 10 week internship and hope to keep you updated how that is going over the next 10 weeks. Stay tuned!

Legend of Badges

Note: The various badges displayed in people profiles are largely honesty-based self-proclamations by the individuals themselves. There are reporting functions users can use if they know of blatant misrepresentation (for both people and projects). Legitimacy, competency and reputation for all people and projects can be evidenced and/or developed through their providing regular updates on permaculture work they’re involved in, before/after photographs, etc. A spirit of objective nurturing of both people and projects through knowledge/encouragement/inspiration/resource sharing is the aim of the Worldwide Permaculture Network.

pri_teacher

PRI Teacher

With the exception of the ‘Member’ who has never taken a PDC, all of the above can apply to become a PRI PDC Teacher. PRI PDC Teachers are those who the PRI recognise, through a vetting board, as determined and competent to teach the full 72-hour course as developed by Permaculture founder Bill Mollison – covering all the topics of The Designers’ Manual as well as possible (i.e. not cherry picking only aspects the teacher feels most interested or competent in). Such teachers also commit to focussing on the design science, and not including subjective spiritual/metaphysical elements. The reason these items are not included in the PDC curriculum is because they are “belief” based. Permaculture Design education concerns itself with teaching good design based on strategies and techniques which are scientifically provable.

PRI PDC Teachers may be given teaching and/or consultancy offerings as they become available as the network grows.
