"This course will change the way you look at the world, our planet, and your place within it. When I attended a master gardener program a few years ago, I was mostly curious about plants and the science of horticulture. Megan's PDC class builds from that more granular focus to a much more expansive and far more profound level- that being our collective interconnectedness with nature, our food, and the magical, yet delicate, relationships between all living things." - Gerritt S.
"Life changing! The knowledge and place for individuals to find a loving, supportive community. For new students don’t hesitate to sign up. Before my PDC course I had no knowledge of what permaculture meant. Now I am beyond excited to share what I’ve learned with my community. The memories made will forever remain within me. Thank you!" - Fabiola C.
