Overseas payment fees

For those people paying from overseas via bank transfer, an additional $35 will be added for each payment, as every international bank transfer incurs a charge on our account. As the bank fees are charged by the number of transfers, we recommend a one-off payment in full to avoid additional charges. Your enrolment is secured only when the full amount has been paid.


The total payment includes:

  • The non-refundable $500 deposit/booking fee
  • The residential Permaculture Design Course including all tuition & materials
  • Off-site visits including a local organic farm, a community garden, a developing 
permaculture site and Melliodora
  • 15 nights camping accommodation
  • Full board & healthy ethical food
  • 15 days living and participating in the yoga ashram life including daily yoga
