    What a fantastic course you and Tom put on! I did my PDC online with Geoff in 2015, but I can definitely see the benefits of doing an ‘in-house and hands dirty’ course like yours. Keep up the great work. I hope to be in a position soon to purchase some land and start an intentional community to assist people who can’t afford their own land to live a permaculture life. Kind Regards, Kim Best
