A great 2 month opportunity to learn practical permaculture design and gardening in the best way we know, by getting your hands dirty!
As a participant you will receive the usual 72 hours of permaculture theory from the Permaculture 'A Designer's Manual' textbook. This is normally taught over 2 weeks.
