"I loved this course! Tom did an amazing job of distilling Bill Mollison's hefty textbook into a very cohesive, organized and inspirational two weeks. It has definitely changed the direction of my future, and stoked my lust for life. I don't know if I just got really lucky, but everyone in my PDC group was a pleasure to get to know! I'm looking forward to some joint future projects. The farm and facilities are nestled in a lush oasis that has been a joy to wake up to every morning. And the food was spectacular! This course should be mandatory curriculum in all primary and secondary education. Thanks for sharing you knowledge and home with us!"

"I'm now terminal! The course was amazing and so inspirational. Even after the second day I changed the way I look at the landscape. Tom and Zaia are brilliant teachers and always helpful, friendly and approachable. The PDC was exactly what I needed to formalise my dive into permaculture and open up a world of opportunities and inspiration. It was a great mix of theory and practical. I chose PRI Sunny Coast for the demonstration ability and seeing with our own eyes what we were learning about. Far exceeded my original expectations! And the food was incredible! Thank you!" --Student PDC 21 Sept. 2014
"The course was really well laid out, specifically the practical vs. theory. It helped us understand all the concepts of permaculture. Zaia, Tom and Marlon were amazing hosts, opening their home and hearts, I couldn't imagine a better way to start my permie life! Thanks also to the volunteers!
THE FOOD WAS AMAZING! I would pay to do the course so I could just eat that cake again!! Again, I loved every moment, the people made this course a delight and the two weeks went by way too fast!" --Student PDC 21 Sept. 2014
