Not having found THE forum for listing permaculture design courses here at, I'm starting this topic to gather notices of PDC's.

Affordability is in the eye of the beholder, but this course, offered every summer at Steward's Draw PDC at The Draw in northern Wisconsin, probably fits: $450 for the ten day course with an excellent instructor, Nat Larson. This is a course for those who don't need a stamped and signed design certificate, just all of the learning. Yes, it includes camping and meals. And it starts next weekend! Be sure to call the number on their website, they are notoriously slow at email.

I have visited their permaculture farm several times and am in awe of what they have accomplished in seven years. I've also taken two classes with Nat and his sidekick, Eric Frank, who runs Bay Permaculture . They were outstanding, given here in the driftless region of SW Wisconsin where we also have classes given by Mark Shepard. I recommend both of their classes heartily. I am putting this info in the Midwest USA forum also.
Beauty is in the eye of the tiny ad.
