Rosemary "Rowe" Morrow is recognized for her pragmatic and effective approach to creating Permaculture systems across an incredibly broad range of environments. Her knowledge on how to create abundance, food security and successful sustainable farming models, no matter what the country, is extensive. In addition to being a much valued permaculture designer and educator, Rosemary is also passionate about training permaculture teachers. She has contributed the formation of community- scale Permaculture systems in such diverse biospheres as Uganda, Thailand, the Middle East, Australia and northern Europe, to name but a few.
She will be joined by Alfred Decker and Léo Matteudi.
Students must have completed a PDC (Permaculture Design Course).
The course will take place in the South of France (Western Pyrenees) near Perpignan. The precise place is to be confirmed.
