Rocklyn Ashram Permaculture Design Course

Only a few weeks left to book into our new Permaculture Course  in the Wombat Forest south of Daylesford at the beautiful Rocklyn Yoga Ashram.
Garden3This wonderful location was chosen for several reasons;
The Ashram has been expanding its focus over the last few years to encourage and emphasise sustainability and permaculture;
David Holmgren and Hamish Macallum completed a permaculture design at the Ashram which has been being put into practice, so there is much to look at and discuss;
The spiritual focus of Ashram life complements the mindfulness of permaculture practice and reminds us to balance our activity and thinking with reflection, a point not normally emphasised in PDCs;
Being quite close to Melbourne, Castlemaine, and Ballarat, it is centrally located and very accessible, though the overwhelming feeling when you’re there is of being in another world.
The Ashram has extensive gardens to cater for their visitors, and course participants; Most of the food for the course will be produced on the property. Vegetables
This PDC will cover all seven Permaculture Domain topics, study the twelve Permaculture Principles, as well as the three ethics, there will be at least three excursions to significant local demonstration sites, with twice-daily opportunities to attend Yoga sessions, as well as a meditation/havan session daily. 
The location, the venue and the forest around it, is very beautiful and will invite you to explore or just sit in peace, in the program time out allowance.
With seven highly experienced tutors, the depth of practical and theoretical knowledge will be another unique feature of this very special PDC.
If you’re thinking about attending this course, send us an email enquiry, or call Ian Lillington on 0478297057 for more information, and refer to our earlier post,
