Summary: 

An average PDC runs for 12-14 days, packing in all the 72 hours of theory into the shortest timescale possible. We want to do things differently and after feedback from PDC graduates they want it differently too – so we have created a 21 day PDC. This will be a unique learning experience giving you all the knowledge and skills of a PDC but with the added benefit of being able to deepen that knowledge – to learn by doing – to put theory into practice – get your hands in the earth and connect with the land from day one!

You are also welcome to join us on our music jams, open air movie nights, Yoga/Akro, Capoeira and pizza nights that we organize.

We are looking forward to have you :)
