Northern sojourn (by rail)

David Holmgren will make one last sojourn north in June before he takes a well deserved sabbatical from teaching courses and public lectures, taking part in panel discussions and conducting workshops. He will spend the coming seasons finishing several of his writing projects.
coverAlong with Su Dennett, he will take part in the Planting weekend in Woodford in QLD. But before getting there, they will be stopping over briefly in Sydney, and he will be teaching a two day Advanced Permaculture Principles Course in Sydney.
After the Planting, they will be travelling on to Mullumbimby in northern NSW for three days of a public talk and workshops before heading home. The details of all these engagements are listed in the Events.

A note on the often forgotten yet vitally important side. How will they get around? You won’t catch them  in the queue at airport check-ins for sure. You won’t see them operating the bowser at the servos. Could that be possible? It seems so. Long time advocates of less flights and drivings the better, they will be travelling by rail.  Interstate trips in Australia without flying or driving?  Too slow? Remember permie principle number nine? They will no doubt enjoy (ie observe and analyse the scenes outside the window during the days up and down the east coast. They will be spending a few nights in style, on the sleeper trains as well.
