Thanks for replying. I think this area merits more exploration. Before modern pasture agriculture Europe had a history of coppice/pollard forest agriculture as sources of winter feed in place of hay. Much like our own foods many contain alkaloids/toxins as well as variable minerals so a balanced diverse feed is required. Acacia sp., moringa,…[Read more]

I was trying to ask on your blog comments but the recaptcha is broken.
What plants do you grow to feed your livestock? If there is one topic that is notably incomplete from permaculture it is information regarding animals.
Very little information is given on edible plants, less is given on palatability/toxicity and nothing seems to be know…[Read more]

“I would recommend Tom Kendall’s PDC to anyone looking to learn or become part of the Permaculture Community. I really enjoyed the course. It was also an excellent opportunity to learn from someone who has always worked with the land and who has spent a long time developing that relationship into what it is now. I learned a great deal about the agricultural systems from a practical and solutions based perspective. And yes, they are lovely people too.
It means a lot to me that they offered the course as pay-as-you-can and as self catered. I am in the position where I can only find sporadic work and rather than waste my time feeling stuck I was able to learn and find new opportunities with this course. The sense of community it gives was also really important to me and I am great full to them for being generous with their time. It is something that will give more value as time goes on and I hope to return this fully when I’m able. ”

“ Unlike all the other students I had no previous knowledge in permaculture and it far exceeded my expectations. I was happy to see the ethics related to this topic were one of your criteria. I would highly recommend this course and have done so already multiple times and will continue to refer people to you in all my travels
To be able to do the course by donation has meant to me that I’ve been able to upskill myself for an affordable amount in a time of current unemployment.
It also meant I could please my curiosity on this topic and dip my toes in the water with the little knowledge I had in this field where as a full price course would have not lead me down this path. I thank you both so kindly for your contribution in getting this knowledge out there in our current global situation.”
