New Permaculture Design Course in Melbourne

Just got word of this:

I did my PDC in Melbourne in 2009, with Cam Wilson. It was one full day per week for 13 weeks, in suburban Heathmont. It was ideal for me because I couldn’t afford the time to do the full 2-week, live-in, 72 hour course, which is standard for most PDC’s.

This one looks like being excellent! I’d love to do it and experience the teaching skills of Dan Palmer, Darren Doherty, David Holmgren and others. I’m already familiar with Dan, because he taught one of Cam’s classes while Cam was away.

I’d almost be prepared to pay the price of $1800 for the privilege, but the course includes 3 weekends away (camping—I think my camping days are over, besides I don’t have a tent and I got rid of the Ford wagon which I could have slept in, and don’t think the Hyundai Getz I have now would be all that comfortable!).

And I don’t have a chook sitter.

However, if you’re in Melbourne or nearby, I can thoroughly recommend the course if you can manage it.

      I did! And that’s why I won’t be doing this one. But I can dream!

        lol…me too Bev…me too :). If I had the money (say a tiny pink pig with wings flew past and dropped a cashbag in my lap…) I would head on up to Milkwood and would do one of their residential courses…until then it’s me and my squinty eyes checking out every permaculture book I can lay my hands on and a whole lot of downloaded permaculture videos 🙂
