The Introductory course will not cover topics in great detail, as does the full 72-hour permaculture design course - it is an overview and sets the stage for what permaculture is about. It is the seed that grows further into the journey of permaculture, where you may dig much deeper into this fertile space for creating positive change by investing in the full design course. Many people have found that attending an introduction to permaculture course is enough and go on to create some incredible projects, with the enthusiasm generated by this course, plus books and references to expand on their own knowledge.

Tony Styles

Loved the intro to permaculture course. Really enjoyed the way the crew presented the course. They made learning fun by doing lots of group activities and provided a supportive environment where people felt comfortable sharing ideas and experiences. They are very knowledgeable and passionate about permaculture and their enthusiasm is infectious. Great work!

Tonielle, created a sense of adventure, enthusiasm and a real feeling of connectedness.  The day we put it all together was so memorable. My son was included in the experience as a worthy member of the team, ready for action and he loved every second. It would never had been the same without Tonielle's passion and her ability to create an ease for the project, her knowledge and wisdom is outstanding. I recommend Tonielle and her services to everyone!
