PLEASE HAVE A LOOK AT PICTURES OF ONE OF OUR PREVIOUS COURSES HERE
https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10154476349132534&type=1&l=7d8...

We are offering a highly affordable and beautiful experience of learning and inspiration, in our PDC course. Based in the natural and gorgeous surroundings of the Sierra Nevada mountains, it is a 14 day long residential course.
The intense theoretical lessons in the classroom are balanced out by practical workshops and exciting 'field trips' to visit 2 other permaculture projects in the local valleys and mountains. We feel it is important to see the subjects that we study being put into action, experiencing the ways people put permaculture in practice.
The local area also includes many opportunities for continuing your permaculture journey, such as Volunteering on farms, practising design skills, working at the local seed bank, it’s a hive of eco-minded activity!
Taught by local farmer Ras John Cresswell and with special guest teacher Cathy Whitefield, partner of famous U.K. permaculture godfather, Patrick Whitefield. The course will also include five other guest teachers.
The course is a camping course and students should bring their own material. We also have some accommodation available if requested. For more information please check: supernatural-permaculture.com/accommodation/

This course has a maximum of twenty people, but we had many requests for the last course, so please be quick in booking if you want a place!
