Permaculture Design Certificate at PRI Sunshine Coast

Please have a look at this article written by one of the students in our last PDC course, which ran from 23 June to 5 July. Here is an excerpt:

” I just got back from doing a twelve-day Permaculture Design Certificate course in Kin Kin (on the Sunshine Coast between Noosa and Gympie) with Tom Kendall at Maungaraeeda, the permaculture centre that he and his wife Zaia run.  Fantastic experience.  After doing some research on available PDC courses (see below), I went to Maungaraeeda with high expectations – and they were exceeded.  Tom is a wonderful teacher, very warm, very knowledgeable, and very committed to ensuring his students get the most out of the course.” You can read the remainder of the article here: http://lockyervalley.org/2013/07/10/permaculture-design-certificate/.

We have added some wind protection in the student chill space and both Learning Space and Student Chill Space are carpeted. The kitchen has a nice bit of vinyl on the floor.  Continue reading
