Permaculture Design Certificate (PDC) - The Start Of the Rest Of My Life

Wow! It's done. I have finished my Permaculture Design Certificate (PDC) course with Geoff Lawton and ready for the start of the rest of my life.  The whole learning experience was incredible and sometimes overwhelming.

At nights I couldn't stop thinking about the topics we went through earlier that day and in the mornings as I woke up I continued my thoughts from the night before....crazy feeling :-)

Now being back at home and driving around the neighbourhood, I am looking at landscapes around the country side and start to think about rain water harvesting, dam sites with connecting swales on contour.  Looking at suitable spots for a house with a possibility of an access road on contour and so on....before the course I never saw the possibilities that were right there...

Anyway, if you are interested in permaculture this video may interest you. It's a video from Happy Dancing Turtle where Geoff Lawton gives a talk on Urban Agriculture.  Enjoy!
