Hi !
I'll do my first pdc this autumn and i wanted to try to convince my boss to finance in part or completely my course. I work in trails amenagement in a national park, so planning water movement people movements and working with wild plants in their habitats are an everyday work. But i need help forming my argument about it all. Some ideas group ?

To frame your proposal, perhaps it would be helpful to find out more about the terms of the continuing education stipend or reimbursement, if any. Copy the language used in the explanation of benefits to make your request relevant. Also, is there a specific problem in the park (traffic flow, erosion) that the pdc addresses? In exchange for program reimbursement, could you offer to give a presentation to your fellow employees about that specific issue from a permaculture design perspective?
