Ballarat Permaculture Guild will NOT run its popular Permaculture Design Course in 2022.
We will run the course again in 2023, when we expect the impact of the COVID pandemic to have diminished. Our 2020 course was cancelled after 3 weekends and the 2021 course had to have weekends rescheduled three times due to lockdowns, which created major logistical headaches!
Our focus on permaculture education remains as strong as ever, though!
In 2022, we will run:
- Multiple Introduction to Permaculture days (new one day format)
- Retrosuburbia bookclubs each term (via Zoom, for maximum accessibility)
- Half and single day events featuring our amazing PDC presenters
- Half and single day workshops on practical skills
BPG financial members also access the fabulous Milkwood Permaculture Living course at a 25% discount. The Permaculture Living course is a 12 week practically focussed course accessed online but requiring positive practical actions at home. It has been thoroughly enjoyed by many BPG members over the last 18 months, especially during COVID lockdowns!
We also look forward to getting together again at social events, permablitzes, produce swaps, film nights, fruit harvests and more. It’s been great to have online events but some of us are looking forward to real hugs rather than virtual curtsies!
