This work is the culmination of 15 years of teaching 25 PDC’s during which time I took 20 advanced courses as well as a PDC with Rosemary Morrow in Greece, Bill Mollison and Geoff Lawton in Australia and Toby Hemenway in Portland. While developing this body of work I have taken a Diploma and Masters Degree with Bill Mollison and the Permaculture Academy, a Diploma with Larry Santoyo and Scott Pittman through the Permaculture Institute, and this version is part of my current Diploma with Looby Macnamara through the Permaculture Association. Done under the mentorship of Larry Santoyo, this represents the culmination of my Doctoral work in Permaculture Education.

“Information is the most portable and flexible investment we can make in our lives; it represents the knowledge, experience, ideas and experimentation of thousands of people before us.” – Bill Mollison and Reny Slay
