I have lived in the south west coastal town of Denmark since 1995 after staying as a wwoofer... one thing led to another and here I am up to my neck in permaculture. As an organic gardener I was trying a more holistic kind of thing and permaculture is a system that integrates everything from water, energy and culture... it spoke my language - and more.
I did a PDC with David Coleman in 1996, and now we live and teach together and have run many memorable PDC's from his property Living Waters.
I spent over a decade teaching organic horticulture at TAFE and the last 6 teaching certificate III in permaculture, as well as being involved in the whole Accredited Permaculture Training.
My main project at present is working through the final stages of our eco-village project that is almost completed after a long and twisting journey.... apart from my garden that is forever work in progress... and lovin it!
See the Living Waters page for pix and updates... tanks, roads and orchards... all good!! Winter is great!
If you have done a PDC and want to do another for any reason, we are offering a 50% discount
Since receiving finance for the eco village project we are now full steam ahead to be issuing titles within 12 months.
