We are most excited to announce that for the first time VEG will be running a Permaculture Design Certificate course in and around Melbourne starting March 22 2013 and running over weekends (some full residential weekends, other weekends just Saturdays).  We will have guest teachers including David Holmgren & Darren J Doherty taking particular days of the course with the main teachers being VEG directors Adam & Dan.  You can read more and register here. The course will use the framework Dan has been developing on the PDCs he helps run for the Koanga Institute (next one starts in February for those in NZ or interested in studying abroad) and is very much focused on establishing a solid foundation in real-world permaculture design including a 100% real design process we will conduct as colleagues in a group.
