The Introductory course is a practical weekend to learn the fundamentals of edible gardening. It will not cover the design process in great detail, as does our 10-day Permaculture Design Course (PDC) Retreat. Instead, this is an overview and sets the stage for what permaculture is about. It is often the seed that grows into the journey of permaculture, where you may dig much deeper into this fertile space to create positive change, by investing in the full PDC. Many people have found that attending this Introduction to Permaculture course is enough to go on and create some incrEdible projects, with much enthusiasm generated! 

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!
