V.E.G. PDC at Melliodora

IMG_8430 It is a rare  opportunity to be taught permaculture directly from a concept’s original developer. It is a unique opportunity to learn permaculture at Melliodora, one of the most mature permaculture systems around. When this unique opportunity materialises, people have a pretty special experience.
No doubt the students of the V.E.G. (Very Edible Gardens) PDC  taught David Holmgren over the weekend will forever remember the weekend. They had not just a team of awesome teachers, Dan and Adam, as well as David, but were also treated to food prepared by Su Dennett. Su gave the visitors a feast, making use of Melliodora’s abundance, fresh from the farm garden, with preserved food from past seasons, and supplemented by other locally and ethically obtained food items. What better way to learn permaculture!
IMG_8422The dynamic permaculture duo will be back again (with other excellent teachers) to host a PDC at the Rocklyn Ashram in February 2014. Bookings have just opened but places are filling fast for this course, so if you have been thinking about it (but have not done anything yet), you still have time, but we recommend you to act pretty soon.
Here are some other courses David (and Su) will be involved in;

We are also offering a seven day live-in Seasonal Cycle Course in March (autumn) next year with a limit of 8 people. 6 places left
