Permaculture Design Course 2016


Would you like to do a Permaculture Design Course in 2016?

Ballarat Permaculture Guild is running a PDC beginning Sunday May 1.

It will run 15 Sundays (excluding School Holidays) finishing Sunday August 28, 2016.  Venue will be in Sebastopol.

This course is especially relevant for those who want a higher quality educational experience than a two week intensive allows.  The extended format allows you to integrate your learnings and apply them at home each week. 

If you have a busy week, can't take a weekday off, can't afford to spend two weeks holiday on a course or just want to have a great Sunday to look forward to each week, this is the course for you! 

No previous permaculture experience necessary.  Presenters include Beck Lowe, Ian Lillington, Steve Burns, David Holmgren, Sonia van Dorssen, Paul Ryle, David Davidson, Yonke van Geloven, and a range of other local experts & specialists.  We visit many local permaculture sites, including Melliodora, home of permaculture co-founder David Holmgren.

Course fees: $995 full fee.  Concession $495
